Reluctant hero

He pulled Niki Lauda from the wreckage of his blazing Ferrari, fought in Vietnam and now pilots humanitarian flights for seriously ill children, but Brett Lunger plays down his many achievements… Writer Andrew Marriott Brett Lunger has always been understated, self-analytical, supremely fit and serious.
