On day 1 of 12 characters in 10 days we met the pilots of 505 squadron.  Today we meet their boss:

Squadron Leader Andy McKnight


McKnight is the oldest of the four pilots, a Scotsman, a father of four grown up children, a widow and a veteran of World War I.   Before being seconded to 505 squadron he was a test pilot for the RAF.  He is one of the most highly thought of pilots in the service.

In the book though he is such much more; he represents a father figure, the action hero of the piece and is involved in so much more then just fighting Luftwaffe dragons with Hurricanes and Spitfires.

You can see how important he is in George and the Dragon by checking out the word cloud I produced of the book:

  1. The more I hear about this book, the more my appetite is whetted. Cannot wait to learn how McKnight mentors George, or the role that he plays.
