Summary
In 1945 Britain was the world's leading designer and builder of jet aircraft - a world-class achievement that was not mere rhetoric. How did Britain so lose the plot that today there is not a single aircraft manufacturer of any significance in the country? And what was it like to be alive in that marvellous post-war moment?
