  • Memories in mud

    Arthur van der Starre and Raoul de Zwart
    X X X X X

    Between 6500 and 7500 (!) planes crashed or were shot down in the Netherlands during WWII. We are talking here of bombers, fighters and reconnaissance planes, the vast majority belonging to the British, American and German air forces, not all of which have been recovered. It is estimated that around 1500 to 2000 aircraft have […]

    A very nice book this time by Bart Vandamme from Belgium. For him it all started in October 2001, when he was invited to the annual “Gathering of Eagles” in the city of Lancaster (near Edwards AFB) in California. I never get invited for such gatherings! There he met people like Chuck Yeager, Bill Dana […]

    One would not exactly refer to aviation as a niche. Books on the subject of aviation probably more so. However, books about World War ll control towers would certainly fall into that category! This book from the brothers Theo and Frans Barten contains photographs of the last 52 remaining Second World War towers at (former) […]

    This e-book describes the Grunman F9F Cougar, the first arrow wing jet of the American Navy. With the appearance of the MIG 15 above Korea, the American Navy was heavenly pressurized to quickly come with a counter reply and that led to the development of the Cougar as successor of the ‘straight wing’ Grunman Panther.

    Recently my eye fell on this book with a fighter jet on the cover and then I want to read it! Of all the aviation books that I read, this one is a bit odd but tasty, because it doesn’t only cover special aviation history, but also separately tells about the history of North Korea. […]

    Looking down on the moon!… The main character of this book, Jack Roberts, is a somewhat cripple pilot who initially pilots for the East African Mission and later is recruited as a hireling-pilot. He uses a walking-stick that also is deployed as a very effective striking- and stabbing weapon. His handicap doesn’t restrict him in his […]
