Higher and Higher: A Vulcan Pilot's story

This book recounts the life of Pete Odling who started flying aged 14 with his training on propeller driven aircrafts. Pete's training rapidly proceeded to jet powered aircrafts, going through the Sound Barrier, and then specialising in Bomber Command.

Throughout his flying career Pete tells the memoir of his flight experiences with the beautifully sleek Canberra, and later the mighty powerful Vulcan Mk2. Throughout his service, Pete tells the story of being on high alert, and the adrenalin moments whilst being part of  No 617 Dambuster Squadron.

With a passion for flying, Pete shares his later life and his continued joys of flying for fun in small civilian aircrafts, and around France and different parts of the USA.
