Jim Dalton knew his luck would not last forever. He loved being a fighter pilot, even with all its dangers. Spellbound, he watched as the Messerschmitt 110 pumped bullets directly into the Hurricane's fuselage...
Many years later a team of aviation archaeologists were excavating a Hurricane that had fallen during the Battle of Britain and discovered Jim's remains, along with a fob watch, wallet and dilapidated photo of a young lady. The search begins for Jim's relatives and the mystery lady in the photograph...
A review by Jean Lopez - Author of Historical Fiction.
A team of aviation enthusiasts excavated a Hurricane and found the pilot’s remains along with photographs and other objects in the wreckage of the aircraft.
The leader of the dig set out to find out about the pilot.
Jim Dalton was an Australian fighter pilot who flew with the RAF in the Battle of Britain. He met Jo and they fell in love. Through Jo and her friends, Jim learned to admire the courage of Londoners who coped with shortages and lived under the threat of Nazi invasion.
Day in and day out, Jim had to deal with the grind of aerial battle and see friends being killed. Through it all he had Jo’s love to sustain him. She was devastated when he went missing.
