Funny looking crate, ain’t it? A sort of motor bike with wings. Eighteen-year-old Willie Onslow built it himself, and flew it, too!

A Frenchman invented the Flying Flea and “Do-it-yourself” kits to build it were offered for under £100. Young Willie, flying mad, saved up and got one sent out to the island of Silau, south east of New Guinea, where his dad, Pop Onslow, ran an air-freight business with an ancient stringbag of a Vickers Virginia bomber.

When war came and an Aussie fighter  squadron took over Silau to hold back the invading Japanese hordes in the South Seas, the pilots laughed themselves sick at the two freakish-looking planes already operating there. Willie had to take the Flea up and run rings round the latest Tomahawk fighter before they began to consider letting Pop and his son – and the Flea – join the war effort.


A particularly nice copy. Slight rubbing at edges, internal tanning. Cover is clean and bright, book is sound and in very good condition. Bagged and boarded. Please examine photos carefully and see our notes on item condition before purchasing.
