The third in Guy Halford-MacLeod's series on the history of independent airlines in Britain after the Second World War, battling against ever-changing government policies, this well-organised book takes us from Harold Wilson's first administration through the Thatcher years, to the surprising acceptance of Open Skies within the European Community. Britain's Airlines focuses on the airlines, their managers, the aircraft they flew, and the conditions they contended with for survival. Guy Halford-MacLeod explains how the airlines made and remade themselves, ducking and diving in a slippery and difficult ring; and records the exploits of some well-known heavy-weights, Freddie Laker, Lord King, and Richard Branson. There are unfamiliar slants on the stories of the time, and this readable book offers both structure and expert analysis of the complex issues which faced the airlines and their regulators.
