    First 100 years are tough- Martin Leeuwis Martin Leeuwis took the 100-year mark for civil aviation and KLM in The Netherlands as an opportunity to publish this book with all kinds of  cartoons and drawings. Doing this now makes sense, for Martin used to fly himself – coming from the air force – with KLM […]

    In my hunt for excellent books at the aviation firmament I ran into this book and this specimen really deserves a honourable mention. And to top it all, the book is even a Dutch product. Whilst about everyone in 2013 is minding the JSF and the F-16 and some persons perhaps still staying behind at […]

    No, no, stop! Don’t scroll down to the next review…read this one for a moment! In the past I didn’t know so well what I had to do with delta-flying. I wondered sometimes if it was something for me, but I think I lacked courage to really hang beneath a piece of fabric and sail […]

    A humoristic original guy the writer of this book is; Eric Auxier. He nowadays flies big ones, but there was also a short period that in Alaska he flew smaller ones. This book is drenched with everything that Alaska IS: fantastic landscapes, beautiful birds, desolate landsapes, mountains, a lot of bad weather and little opportunity […]

    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 […]

    There are 100,000 books called ‘Out of the Blue’, but I felt drawn to this particular one and I absolutely had to have it. For 3 reasons: first of all the deep blue cover of the book reminded me of my beloved 2001 midnight blue Saab 93; secondly in honour of my youthful past during […]

    I trust there is nobody who – like Ding Duck – has had 5,000 flying lessons and still cannot fly! This endearing book is about a sweet little duck who, despite all the necessary materials being available to him: a tower, a flight instructor, a beautiful runway, and despite his very best efforts, he just cannot […]
