Final Approach

(1976)
(Ashley Landing)
A novel by

 
This is the irresistible, constantly unexpected story of a man and his deep loves: for a tree-flanked airfield called Ashley Landing, for a redoubtable and enchanting girl called Frances Gray, whom he teaches to fly, for their children and his many friends. It is a story, reaching from 1910 to post Second World War, of the vast unpredictable adventure of flying during one man's life-span - hair-raising, ludicrous, terrifying and at times very moving.

In this book the author of Collision, The Last Hill and Bomb Run reveals with greater power than ever his extraordinary narrative gift.

About the author: Spencer Dunmore was a schoolboy in Yorkshire, England during World War II and watched bombers limping home to the RAF airfields there. His imagination was fired by this experience to the extent that he became an expert on the war in the air, 1939-1945, and his accounts of the bombers and fighters involved are renowned for their accuracy. Dunmore left Britain for Canada in the mid-50s where he was an advertising executive for many years. Dunmore is now a full-time writer and a private pilot on weekends and resides in Ontario.
