Gemini Flight (by Douglas Warren)
Price Includes Shipping in Canada.
Born in Nanton, Alberta, identical twins Bruce and Douglas Warren trained together at High River and Medicine Hat, Alberta. They went on to fly Spitfires together from Dieppe to Normandy, completing their wartime service as the two flight commanders on 66 Squadron.
Following the war, the twins’ careers diverged, but both made significant contributions to the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Cold War. Bruce became a test pilot with Avro Canada, flying the Jetliner and CF-100 prototypes. Douglas flew the Canadair F-86 Sabre in Korea and Europe as the commanding officer of 410 ‘Cougar’ Squadron.
The great majority of Gemini Flight was written by Douglas Warren, with Dave Birrell inserting a number of brief vignettes and some additional information.
