    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 […]

  • Michael & Stefan Strasser

    Chicken Wings 4 - Gold Rush

    159 pg.

    Some books that I come across do deserve the originality price. This is one of them! The book contains a huge collection of comic drawings that stand on themselves or which form together with other pictures a short story. The stories take place on a nice little airport, the hangars, the platforms or in the […]

    Besides flying, being around airplanes, and airplane watching and identification, nothing gives aviation enthusiasts greater pleasure than reading about airplanes and aviation history. Aviation enthusiasts are engaged historians of flight and the technology that has made flight possible. In many ways, the history of aviation is as intellectual as it is visual. From the beginning […]

    I first saw a picture of the Convair B-58 Hustler in C.B. Colby’s 1966 book Jets of the World: New Fighters, Bombers and Transports. I discovered the book in the library of Buena Vista Elementary school. The year was 1972 and I was in the second grade. As best as I recall, the library had […]

    No trudge novel but again a real ‘aviation book’ for the night table! In my search for good books that cause your heart beating faster, I bought ‘Sea Harrier Over The Falklands’ of Commander ‘Sharkey’ Ward. The book is about the use of the then brand-new Sea Harrier in the conflict around the Falklands in […]
