David has always had a passion for aeroplanes. This was reflected in his career choice as an aircraft engineer in the Royal Air Force, where he spent the first twenty-three years of his working life. After leaving the RAF he joined a specialist technical publications company, writing technical manuals for military customers. Eventually, his passion for aviation resurfaced, resulting in his writing several aviation titles, including: Little Book of Flight, The Royal Air Force - The Memorabilia Collection, Little Book of Spitfire, Little Book of Concorde, RAF Aircraft of WWII, and Heroes of the Skies.
