Born in Salford, IAN REID’s interest in aviation began at an early age, a time when his father had a business among the factories at Trafford Park, Manchester. Ian obtained special permission to join the Air Training Corps at Market Rasen a year before the official entry age. Moving to Grimsby, his interest in the local airfield at Waltham spurred him to form the RAF Waltham Association. When 100 Squadron formed its own association a number of years later, not only did they allow Ian to undertake a flight in a Canberra, but they made him the squadron’ first honorary member. Over forty years of research has led to Ian writing many articles, contributing to several books, and being involved in the 1989 remake of Memphis Belle. This is his third book concerning RAF operations .
