The Sound of Wings

(1984)
A novel by

 
Adam Beal has a spotless career in modern commercial aviation. Co-pilot on the prestigious London/New York run, he is soon to be promoted to the coveted pilot's seat.

Then came the incident. Out of a stormy night sky materialized an old-fashioned monoplane - directly in the path of Beale's jetliner. Only Adam's quick thinking and quick action saved the hundreds of passengers - or did they? Only Beale saw the small plane.

Only Beale sees it the next time, on take-off, or the next, on landing. Only Beale hears the faint SOS over the radio. The ghost plane's pilot, a beautiful young woman. appears at Adam's bedside, pleading silently for his help. She cannot rest - she haunts his every hour.

Investigating the flyer's disappearance, Adam finds himself drawn into a sixty-year-old web of treachery and deceit. Adam swears he will solve her mystery - no matter the cost.

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.
