The Westland Lysander won lasting fame during the Second World War as the rugged little aircraft that flew British secret agents and French Resistance workers in an out of Occupied France by night, right under the noses of the Germans.
The exploits of its RAF crews and the agents they carried have become the stuff of legend.
Author Edward Wake-Walker has been given privileged access to the world famous Shuttleworth Collection's airworthy Lysander, V9367, to give readers rare insights into the operation and maintenance of this unique aircraft.
