Maurice Wilson was from Yorkshire, England. He was a decorated but damaged WWI veteran. In 1933 he became obsessed with Mount Everest and becoming the first man to stand upon its’ summit. His plan seemed reasonable. Fly a plane from England to Everest, land somewhere on the mountain and walk or climb to the summit. Maurice’s main obstacles were that he had no climbing experience and have never piloted a plane before. Why let details interfere with destiny?
