The autobiography of Air Vice-Marshall Cyril Eaton Kay (1902-1993) New Zealand-born aviator, started as a barnstormer, broke the England to Australia air record, joined the New Zealand bomber squadron during WWII, often considered overly-cautious etc. Formerly Chief of Air Staff, New Zealand, 'The Restless Sky' is the record of a distinguished and eventful flying career - spanning the years from the time "when those of my calling were satisfied and even thrilled to chug through the air at 80 m.p.h.", to the modern age, in which the author exceeded the speed of sound and was installed as a member of the exclusive "Mach Busters" club.
Illustrated with monochrome images.
