This is the story of one man’s close encounters of the terminal kind. Captain Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown CBE, DSC, AFC, QCVSA, is regarded as one of the greatest test pilots in history – he is the Royal Navy’s most decorated pilot, and his record of flying 487 different types of aircraft is unlikely ever to be broken.

Too Close for Comfort is based on a list of Brown’s recorded near misses, compiled by Neil Armstrong – his great friend, astronaut, and fellow naval test pilot. It tells the story of fifteen of the most dramatic and hair-raising episodes in his flying career including; surviving an attack from a Messerschmitt Bf109 in a Norwegian fjord, and being dragged from the Solent after hitting floating debris in the prototype SR/A1 jet seaplane.

The atmosphere and drama of these moments have now been captured as a series of original paintings by renowned aviation artist Michael Turner, President of the Guild of Aviation Artists, which are presented alongside dozens of contemporary photographs.

144 pages. Hardback.
