Before the war, author Alex Henshaw was a record-setting long-distance aviator, and after the war broke out, he became a factory test pilot for Supermarine at their Castle Bromwich factory, flight-testing Spitfires, and later, Lancaster bombers. It was exacting, highly technical work that required discipline, a thorough knowledge of the aircraft – and often, nerves of steel.
