Blue Wings to Bangkok

£90.00

Product description

Blue Wings to Bangkok by Prince Bira (His Highness Prince Birabongse of Siam).

All who follow motor racing will know the name of "B. Bira", which hides the identification of Prince Bira. Whilst much has been written of his great achievements in the world of motor racing, this is the first occasion on which he has turned his descriptive pen to the story of a flight in his private aeroplane from England to Bangkok in 1953.

This story, simply written, and illustrated with his own black and white photographs, has a unique charm and gives vivid descriptions of places encountered on his way. There are moments of intense drama, and it is a book which will appeal to lovers of romance, travel and intimate stories of people in high places.

A sought-after classic on early aviation.

Hardback, 184pp, in good condition, pale blue boards faded, dust jacket protected in removable plastic film.
