A childhood obsession comes to the stage, as Michael Veitch presents Flak, a collection of vivid, unforgettable stories from RAAF veterans about their experiences of combat in World War II.
Although the comedian, actor, author and broadcaster is arguably best known for his roles on various sketch comedy shows, he has also written several books on Second World War aviation, including 2006’s Flak. Over the course of a year, Veitch interviewed over 50 former aircrew from across Australia – from bomber pilots to fighter aces, from rear gunners to bomb aimers. Many of the stories shared had never previously been recounted. Phee Broadway Theatre, Castlemaine – October 24.
