Freddie Laker talks to SONYA CALLINGHAM
Freddie Laker was eleven years old when he said that he meant to be a millionaire. It was not until he left the wartime Air Transport Auxiliary and bought a handful of radio spares that he set out on a career in the world of flying which led him first to the managing-directorship of British United Airways and then to resignation from it. How and why did he do what he did? And what does he make of life now?
