Orkney By Air - By Guy Warner

Orkney by Air  - a photographic journey through time
Guy Warner
Orkney by Air is a photographic record of aviation in the Orkney Islands from the first flights by Ted Fresson through to the twenty-first century. It is accompanied by historical narrative.

Air travel to and within the Orkney Islands began in the 1930s and Orcadians quickly adapted to the aeroplane as a regular mode of transport. This book covers the challenges and changes during three-quarters of a century. It presents a carefully selected collection of archive images that give visual form to the changes that have occurred in air travel in the Orkney Islands.

Orkney by Air is a book which is easy to dip into and will appeal to Orcadians, to visitors to Orkney, and to those with a fascination for flying and for islands.

Guy Warner has researched and written several books and numerous articles on historical and contemporary aviation.  He is school teacher by profession.
