From Lysander to Lightning

From Lysander to Lightning

The Lysander, Canberra, Lightning and Folland Gnat are massive names in the world of aviation, but not so their designer, ‘Teddy’ Petter. Only three aspects bound together these top-class aircraft: they were each radical, all successful in Britain and overseas, and were all born of the genius of Teddy Petter. This book tells the story of Petter’s life and family, from his ability to inspire loyalty in his teams to his tendencies to his eccentricities, right down to his retirement to a religious commune in France. Here Davies not only explores his life, but also expands on the nature of his remarkable aircraft, and why they were so legendary.
