The best-selling GA aircraft in the world; the Cessna 172! That’s where this book is about. What strikes you first, is that it is a small book (about 17 x 12 cm). The book is 128 pages thick and a ‘must have’ for every Cessna pilot and owner. From start to finish the book is […]

You must really love small aircraft an awful lot to be able to produce a book like this! More than 800 aircraft are listed in this bible of more than 400 pages thick! It is something like a Janes Defense…but then different. Not all ‘light aircraft’ are enlisted in this book, else it would be twice […]

In the past when I was young…30 years ago..or so.. the air was still congested with planes. At least in the Netherlands! Anyway, that is my experience. If it weren’t jets, then it was a Boeing E3A Centry and if it wasn’t a Boeing, than you would hear the unmistakable sound of a 2 engine […]

It was last year when I walked at Schiphol Airport on a early morning looking for a newspaper. If you can only buy the Dutch Telegraph that is not really a choice I thought. At that moment my eye fell on an English book with a picture of a Vulcan-aircraft on the front ; Җulcan […]
I was walking into a bookstore (enslaved as I am) looking one or more interesting books. I bought two! In this book review I will discuss one of them, ‘The Flying Dutchman’ by Rudi Dekkers. This book was published in Dutch in 2008. In the English language, he published in 2011 the book ‘Guilty by […]

Many books have been written about the second WW and especially bomber command. In this particular book we follow the training and posting at an active squadron of Bomber Command during the war of air gunner/wireless operator John Brennan. At first he was posted as crew member on a Wellington twin engine bomber in the Middle […]

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 […]
