Into the Blue, by A McKee
Into the Blue, Great mysteries of aviation
by Alexander McKee
Alexander McKee, historian, diver and underwater photographer is best known for leading the team of amateur divers (including John Bevan) from the Southsea BSAC who spent 20 years searching for and eventually finding the Mary Rose. John Bevan’s admiration and respect for ‘Mac’ (as he was known to his friends) is reflected in his comprehensive collection of McKee’s books of which this is one.
McKee, well known as historian, researcher and diver, was also a pilot. His first flight was in a Tiger Moth at the age of 15. His accounts of aviation mysteries include the disappearance of balloonist Salomon August Andree, flying aces from WW1, Amy Johnson and Amelia Earhart, Joseph Kennedy Jr and more.
