    There is a magnificent Hawker Typhoon on the cover of this particular comic strip, and that’s why I bought it. The book is an instructive one due to its many beautiful drawings coupled with the stories in the speech balloons. Operation Overlord is the complex campaign that heralded the liberation of Europe and eventually led […]

    I picked up this little jewel in the children’s section of a book store, on a shelf labeled “8 years upwards”. Well, I would love to be 8 all over again, because this is a beautiful book. Over the course of 50 pages or so, it deals with the basic principles of flying, outlines the […]

    There was no other way it could have ended, that Friday the 13th in August 2010! After all, it was a Friday and it was the 13th. On that particular day, a C-47 was transported from the Wings of Liberation Museum in Best to Valkenburg – a former military air base in the Netherlands. The […]

    It becomes highly dangerous with all those women in the air! And in addition to that Sylvia Spruck Wrigleywrites she has achieved her license! Do we have to be happy with that?! I think yes! It is –also- because this female pilot can write very originally. Ms Spruck Wrigleycomes with a short ‘story’ in which […]

    The ones who found Robert Mason’s ‘Chickenhawk’ interesting, shall surely appreciate Tom A. Johnson’s ‘To the limit’. Johnsons describes his mission as helicopter pilot to Vietnam in 1968, the year of the battles for Hue and Khe San. If you always wondered how it would be to land a difficult to navigate, fragile and overloaded […]
