In the days when an airline flight was still a voyage, these strange, beautiful machines linked Britain to the furthest reaches of the Empire—and it was an unforgettable experience for both passenger and crew. At the heart of Graham Coster’s exploration of this magical 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 rise to a new village in a tiny backwater of Central Africa: Corsairville. Graham Coster, a former editor of GRANTA, is the author of A Thousand Miles from Nowhere and Train, Train.
