OF AEROPLANES

“Funny, clever, idiomatically brilliant – and very timely.”

Chapman's next novel will be published on 11th January 2018.

It is midnight early in World War Two. An RAF Wellington bomber has been shot down by enemy fire – the rear gunner and radio dead.

The aircraft floats in the English Channel off the coast of France. Three surviving airmen are in a rubber dinghy. They are alive. But for how long?

Will Flight Sergeant Ted Wilson's officially issued carrier pigeons – Gert and Daisy – fly home at once to request rescue? No. Pigeons have minds of their own. They prefer to wait until sunrise. Six hours ahead. Which could be too late.
