Written adventures….

… by pilots and bank robbers!

John Steed’s Cowboys Don’t Fly opens with him making an emergency landing at Durban’s Virginia Airport. It’s the first crash he’d had in the 40 years he’d been flying … spending more than 3000 hours in the pilot’s seat. And it’s the flight when his wife said “That’s it”, and told him to choose. “It’s flying or me.”  From flying for the Police Reserve Air Wing in the Rhodesian bush war to being involved with Sky Relief, whose pilots fly thousands of hours on aid missions in Mozambique, Somalia and Sudan, to the relocation of two black rhinos by air from SA to Malawi in a De Havilland Buffalo, this is Steed’s story … filled with entertaining anecdontes, it’s a great read for anyone who loves flying and adventure.

Five bank robbers. 15 years in jail. That’s the sentence handed down to 26 year old Allan Heyl in 1977. He had no intention of spending that long behind bars … and by the time ex-police captain and convicted bank robber André Stander arrived in the prison, his plans for escape were well under way. The two team up, escaped, and went on to rob banks at an unprecedented rate. Bank Robber: My Time with André Stander is Heyl’s memoir … this last surviving member of the Stander Gang tells us about the hell of prison life, the gung-ho audacity of robbing banks and hiding in plain sight, the inept and incompetent police force. Heyl was released from Krugersdorp Prison in 2005, turned to motivational speaking and has written this book, which is a fascinating read for those of us who were kept enthralled and appalled by the bank robber gang in the late 70s and early 80s.
