    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 […]

    This book is written by Stephen Carbone, who has worked for more than 30 years in the aviation industry. First he did this as specialist in aviation security systems, but later as researcher at the NTSB and as safety inspector at the FAA. And this you can see in the book, with as storyline a […]

    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 is –also- because this female pilot can write very originally. Ms Spruck Wrigleycomes with a short ‘story’ in which […]
