    Description
    Half boat, half aeroplane, taking off in a thrilling tumult of spray - the flying boat was the journey of a lifetime. Inthe days when an airline flight was still a voyage, these strange, beautiful machines linked Britain to the furthest reaches of the Empire in an unforgettable experience for both passengers and crews. At the heart of Graham Coster's exploration of a magical lost era is an obscure legend: how the Imperial Airways flying boat CORSAIR - rescued from the Belgian Congo in an epic salvage effort over sixty years ago - gave a new village and a new name to a tiny backwater of Central Africa: CORSAIRVILLE.
