Only The Makers Name is the poignant and reflective memoir of acclaimed flying Instructor Ray Blyth. Spanning the years of his childhood growing up in a small house on the outskirts of King's Lynn in the county of Norfolk, surviving the King's Lynn Blitz, as well as many childhood adventures, he writes vividly of his early life underscored by his undying ambition to fly.Inspired by an early Fun Flight on the beach at Hunstanton with his father, family tragedy is soon to strike leaving him alone to set forth on the fulfillment of his dreams. Following many years of hard effort, he becomes a flying instructor clocking up thousands of hours of flying time, but not without sacrifices. A serious air accident leads to many months in hospital, and as he begins the long and agonising road to recovery, uncertain he will ever be able to fly again, he is faced with a recuperation process that demands every bit of his resourcefulness as he is tested to his emotional and physical limit.An amusing and sometimes hilarious biography for enthusiasts of flying, this is also the story of one man's brave fight against all the odds while retaining dignity and compassion.
