The history of Wigram Air Base and military aviation in the Canterbury region of New Zealand is brought to life by story-teller Bee Dawson. Bee interweaves the tales of early aviators, the influential people who developed the base, the ordinary air force personnel who lived there, and the key events of military aviation in the south of New Zealand. The many illustrations, in both colour and black andamp; white, make this a thoroughly accessible history for aviation and military enthusiasts alike.
Social historian Bee Dawson enjoys researching and writing books on the history of people, places and gardens. She lives with her family and one small white dog on top of a windswept cliff overlooking Wellington Harbour.
