Charlie Gray (Jeff as he was later known ) left school at 14 and was set for a life as a farm worker in the North of Scotland when World War II intervened.
Chance took him into the RAF as a bomber pilot and his luck held though the war and led him on to a successful flying career in B.O.A.C. (later British Airways) and Gulf Air.
This is one pilots story and gives a rare insight into the changes in aviation from war time Britain through the introduction of the wide body jets which are now most peoples only exposure to aviation.
"It's Pull To Go Up" by Jeff Gray is published as an illustrated hardback and an eBook version. Check out Burnt Ash Publishing.
