By the Seat of my Pants:
Memoir of a Pilot

Captain Chris John Rosslee

By the Seat of my Pants is a deeply personal memoir of courageous determination.

One man’s life of flying adventures; occasionally perilous, at times hilarious. 

An intrepid but humble man refuses to allow his background of dyslexia and poverty
to decide his future.

Captain Rosslee’s career tracks aviation history as he captains twenty-seven types
of aircraft
over thirty years, from Tiger Moths to Boeings.

During WW2, as a Junker Ju 86 bomber pilot with the Allied forces, he contends
with makeshift maps, primitive instrumentation and limited fuel over
the inhospitable East African bush.

He lands the first commercial aircraft at the opening of Heathrow Airport. 
Trained to fly the 1953 Comet, doomed to disintegrate mid-air,
pure chance keeps him alive.

How does he endure three wartime forced-landings in the devastating African heat,
with no fuel, little water and his whereabouts unknown?

Crossing the vast Indian Ocean, two dead engines, the third about to die,
where is the closest land? 

And how does he handle belly-landing a Boeing?
