Description - From Borneo to Lockerbie by Geoffrey Leeming
Geoff Leeming belongs to an elite group of helicopter pilots. He describes his flying experiences in under-powered, and by today's high-tech standards, basic choppers such as the single-engined Whirlwinds and its successor, the Wessex, whether in turbulent tropical conditions, windswept mountains or low level over raging seas. Much of Geoff's flying career was in Search and Rescue (SAR) calling for the highest flying skills and the coolest of nerves. It fell to the pilot to make life-and-death decisions both for their crews and those they were rescuing. In addition to many great SAR accounts this book begins with accounts of action in Borneo in the 1960s and ends with Geoff's fascinating account of his flying involvement in the aftermath of the Pan Am Lockerbie disaster. The result is a medley of cockpit experiences 'par excellence'. AUTHOR: Geoff Leeming served with the RAF from 1961 to 1990 flying a wide range of aircraft including Valiant V-bombers in the Cold War but mainly in RAF helicopters. 16 pages b/w plates
