Nomad: One Man's Struggle for Survival in Niugini
'NOMAD' - One man's struggle for survival in Niugini. John 'Hairy' Richards starts the aviation company in Papua New Guinea. Staff change, accidents happen but the company is successful. Far too successful some feel. In a tale of PNG aviation history, come on a journey of endeavour, hits and misses, through the lives of one of the many intrepid families who rode the wave of Independence and carved out their own slice of history. In a brutal attack, highland warriors assault Hairy. Traditional men with clubs, bows and arrows. This was no chance robbery by raskals. Could it be James Booker, wanting complete control? Or maybe the opposing airlines are fed-up with the competition. Hairy undergoes miraculous surgery and is then medivaced to Brisbane; doctors doubt he will survive. Booker offers twice the value for the shares. Hairy is suspicious, should he sell and release control? Entwined in these pages are memories of Papua New Guinea's, early, post Independence, aviation history and a memoir of actual events.
