    “Till this day, the only thing filtering this toxic soup out of the cabin are the lungs of the passengers and crew”. This quote sets the tone for this book. A good listener only needs half a word: bleed air for the pressure cabin. With the introduction of the jet engine in the civilian aviation […]

    Fiction stories about aviation always have a so called ‘inaccuracy’ factor. Which means that a good story often collides with the technical reality. In this book, written by Matthew Patrick and beautifully illustrated by John Patrick, a good balance has been found. The story takes place in 1915 when aviation stood at the beginning of […]

    The title of this splendid e-book, written by Jennifer Coutts Clay, doesn’t quite cover the load, because the content contains much more than just information about the decoration of the modern jetliners. This book describes the development of the airplane interior since the introduction of the first generation commercial jetliners. Not only the upholstery of […]

    When I reviewed my first aviation book, about 4 years ago, I obviously didn’t think that finally a 100…and more reviews would be written! But they are there and we will just keep continuing! Simply because amongst the aviation books there are a lot of interesting, fascinating and beautiful pearls, which show the firmament of […]

    When I got this book about the Airbus A380 in my hands, I noticed that it had been written by the same author as the book about the Comet: Graham M. Simons and that guarantees a book which thoroughly deepens the topic with a lot of technical details and even more beautiful pictures… I was […]

    A book about one type of airplane? At first I was afraid for an endless list of facts. But the development and course of life of this iconic plane however read like a novel: red ears from time to time, a lot of astonishment and sometimes straight emotion! After the Boeing 707 and dreaming about […]

    “It’s possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill”- Wilbur Wright. That statement sets the tone for this little book. CRM (Crew Resource Management) is then outlined from multiple point of views. This is a book about cockpit CRM. Next to the ‘theory’ luckily also a lot of examples are used in […]

    This large book gave me for the first time insight information about the Soviet’s involvement in and around Israel during the period of just after the 6-day war (initiative Israel) and the Yom Kippur war (initiative Egypt and Syria). Surprisingly detailed the operational dedication of the MIG-25R (reconnaissance) under real war circumstances is explained, even […]
