That Family That Flew took off with family and friends in Chesterton, Cambridge on Saturday.

On Saturday 21st January, Chris and Jane (Milton Contact) attended the launch of their latest publication, 'The Family That Flew'. The author, Ann Petre, invited family and friends to a small gathering to launch her latest book and it proved very popular. Ann was on hand to sign books and was put in the spotlight when one of her sons asked her about the stories. Ably accompanied by her grandson, who read an extract from the book, and revealing more about her family, Ann gave us a glimpse into those heady Edwardian days at the turn of the 20th Century.

The book tells the story of Ann's family and their fascination with planes and flying. It recounts tales of bravery and courage during WWI and the tragedy that all too often went with the heroism. They were truly aviation pioneers and have left their mark on history.
