It's a lovely b/w trip back in time and beautifully set out, letting the images tell the story. * Classic Motoring * This is a novel as well as instructive look at a previously neglected area of English motoring history, and is highly recommended. * The Automobile * This is an excellent glimpse into the unique archive that is the Aerofilms Collection and I commend it to anyone interested in our motoring heritage. If it doesn't send you scurrying to the Britain from the Air website I'll eat my flying helmet! -- Geoff Lancaster * Society of Automotive Historians in Britain Spring 14 * The quality of reproduction is excellent ... for the quality of production offered this book represents good value. -- Paul Lacey * Roads: Road Transport History Association, February 2014 Issue * It really is an outstanding social history with each full-page picture telling more than the 1,000 proverbial words ... * This England, Summer, 2014 *
