About This Book

607 (County of Durham) Squadron Auxiliary Air Force was created as a bomber squadron in 1930, but later became a fighter squadron, based at North Hylton aerodrome. AAF squadrons, manned by part-timers, were among the first to taste real action against the enemy in World War Two and many of the bravest and best-known officers were themselves AAF part-timers. This detailed book affectionately traces the history of the close-knit 607 Squadron and its unique characters. Robert Dixon is a long-standing aviation enthusiast with a passion for unearthing the histories of forgotten pilots.
