This unique history of Bermuda's flying boat heritage covers all these topics, and a whole host more, in great detail - including information on Transatlantic ferry flights and an ti - su bm arine patrols, the loss of the RMA Cavalier, Bermudian and destination airports, the aircraft involved, what can still be seen today and lists museums which have exhibits associated with this fascinating topic. Liberally illustrated with a ho st of photographs and diagrams, most never before published, and complemented by a series of detailed annexes, it is a book not to be missed by those who love these beaufiful islands, nor by those who seek definitive memories of this major and wi de- ran gin g chapter in Bermuda's remarkable history."
