Based on his two best-selling books, Flak and Fly, well-known writer and performer Michael Veitch presents Flak – true stories from the men who flew in World War Two.

He takes on the roles of five former airmen, recounting their extraordinary, compelling and largely untold stories of combat.

We meet Australian bomber pilot Bruce Clifton whose Lancaster was shot down over neutral Norway, Englishman James
Coward who flew a Spitfire shot down by a German gunner in the Battle of Britain, a Welshman, and a former Nazi pilot. The stories are interwoven with insights from Michael Veitch’s lifelong obsession with air warfare and humorous anecdotes shared by the 50-plus pilots, air gunners and bomb aimers Veitch has interviewed. Join Michael Veitch for a post-show Q&A,
plus afternoon tea, after the 2:30pm show.
