I would like to start a topic to see if anybody can post some great novels around civil aviation. The type of novels that you pick up on a rainy Sunday and cannot put down.
I can start with two by the writer Nevil Shute:
No Highway... A novel that describes a fictious British aircraft suffering from metal fatigue, which was written before the comet crashes. Great story.
Slide Rule... Describes the career of Nevil Shute himself in aviation and includes an interesting description of the R101 airship disaster and the start of the Airspeed aircraft company, founded by Nevil Shute.
