The Duke of Edinburgh's Flying log book


RCIN 250150

In November 1952 a Flight Lieutenant in the Royal Air Force began to give flying lessons to Prince Philip, who made his first solo flight in December that year. The above photograph records the Duke flying solo over Windsor Castle in a Harvard Advanced Trainer on 4 May 1953, the day he was presented with his wings. His flying log book records the flight on that day.
