For a quarter of a century, George Edwards was the dominant figure in British aviation, both civil and military. His name is synonymous with the Vickers Viscount, the world's first turboprop airliner; the ambitious and controversial TRS2 project; and the legendary Anglo-French Concorde. During the Second World War, GRE as he was known, was responsible for making the dam busters' famous bouncing bomb bounce.
