    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.

    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 […]

    Imagine you can teleport yourself back to the year 1922 and then imagine that you are flying over 500 miles of unending sand from Cairo to Baghdad without any landmarks to help you. Oh, yes, there are no radio beacons and you don’t have any GPS, ATC, etc. How do you do that? Simple! You […]
