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.

    This book is really like bringing the birds to the cat! About 30 years ago, in my spotting days, you could regularly find me at RAF Wildenrath, positioned in West Germany, westerly of the Ruhr area.
