The advent of aerial warfare during World War One meant that pilots of the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) and, later, the RAF were putting themselves in grave danger on an almost daily basis. It was therefore inevitable that the new breed of aerial knights would soon feature within the ranks of VC holders. By the end of the Great War, some 19 members of aircrew had been awarded the VC for their gallantry, and by the end of World War Two the total number of aviators who had received the award had risen to 51, a figure that stands today.
This special publication tells their story.
