    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 […]

    This E-book is the follow-up to a previously published work by Sylvia Wrigley detailing both well-known and relatively unknown plane crashes during 2001. This book describes 11 accidents that occurred in 2002. Among these, the most tragic example of how badly things can go wrong, is the story of a collision between a Tupolev 154M […]

    Great brand new book this is! The 256 pages of this voluptuous book has 9 chapters with descriptions of countries that have one or more aircraft-carriers (Brazil, China, France, India, Italy, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States). And let we just make things simple!: most countries actually have 1 (one!), China has 2 […]

    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 […]

    Special books they are these 2 volumes about a large group of countries in the continent Africa and then especially in –what the writers call- the ‘Sub-Sahara’. Not that I normally am so interested in the air forces of African counties, but I was simply curious about these air forces of which you seldom hear, because […]

    A book for children (8-18 yrs); of course you will let that one be read and reviewed by your daughter! ‘Funny’, ‘different’ and ‘unexpected’ my daughter called this book. It is namely not a story that you will read every day. It is a book for children and adolescents, but of course can also be […]
