About This Book

Made on the Isle of Wight is a pictorial celebration of the immense contribution to the aviation, automotive and marine industries that this tiny island has given, from the first hovercraft to boats that held the world water speed record and even the only all-British rocket and satellite into space. With a focus on invention, innovation and record-breaking, local author David L. Williams explores the many products of the island’s industry, along with designers and engineers, and the workforce that created these fascinating inventions.
