Book 2  in the  NEW Wings series.

Greg is only happy when he’s active – on the pitch or on his phone, it doesn’t matter.

But as soon as training’s over or his host parent Steve takes the phone away, he’s on edge.

Steve suggests that Greg do something quiet with him, like making one of Steve’s beloved Airfix kits.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

“Tom is the RAF Museum’s Writer in Residence. His close relationship with the museums and his obsessive eye for detail mean that I was not at all surprised that his Wings books are both highly authentic and hugely exciting. These are Biggles books for the 21st century.” Phil Clayton, Education Office at RAF Museum
