The author learned to fly as a teenager, and here he describes his experiences in both the RAAF and civil aviation. He flew with No. 77 (Fighter) Squadron flying Meteor jets against North Korean enemy forces. After the war he flew Mosquitos on photographic survey operations with 87 Squadron. Subsequently he also flew with Qantas in the days of the Constellations, then Malayan Airlines and East-West.

His life has been full of close shaves with death and opportunities that came his way by sheer chance: hence the title, 'Luck Is No Accident'.
