New Book – Air, Sea and Land Memories – a pilot revisits
Air, Sea and Land Memories – a pilot revisits. A collection of helicopter rescue stories and some fond memories by Commandant Frank Russell (Ret’d). Hayes Print €20, ISBN 9781999616243
A lifetime of unforgettable stories, this is an eclectic collection of memories and photographs of…daring helicopter rescues…Irish UN heroes…air ambulance missions…an ascent of a Biblical mountain…village life in the 1950s…offshore islands flights…a tragic air crash…cancer survival…an old enigma solved and much more.
Motivated by what to do in the latest Covid19 lockdown, former Irish Air Corps helicopter pilot and Air Accident Investigation Unit Investigator Frank Russell has just self-published a book of memories and pictures entitled: “Air, Sea and Land Memories – a pilot revisits”.
“Naturally enough, some of the stories involve me in Air Corps missions, both Air Ambulance and Search and Rescue…with some interesting outcomes! However, my stories are not confined to Ireland, it’s a big world out there and I tried to capture a tiny flavour of it for posterity.”
“The book is available at Hayes Print, Ennistymon, Co Clare. You can contact them on 065-7071125 with your name and address/ credit card details. Cost is €20 +P&P. All the proceeds of this book’s sale will be donated to the LARCC Cancer Support Centre (www.cancersupport.ie) in Multyfarnham, Co Westmeath…of which I am a Co-Founder. The ongoing support of cancer patients is even more critical in these lockdown days.”
