    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 […]

    The twentieth century opened with the courageous exploits of the visionary Wright brothers. This marked the beginning of aviation history, which is dotted with a vast number of aviators and explorers. Granted, explorers come in many forms. Along with Shackleton, Byrd, Hillary and the Apollo astronauts, Charles Lindbergh is one of the great explorers of […]

    Huffman Prairie is an isolated, quiet place eight miles outside of Dayton, Ohio. The field takes its name from a banker named Torrance Huffman who owned the cow pasture at the time the Wright brothers flew the Wright Flyer III, the aircraft that proved that controlled flight was possible. The field is vast. Wilbur and […]

    The pilot slowly brings the aircraft to the beginning of the runway. I look around the cabin and notice many passengers asleep. They have been sleeping since shortly after boarding. In this regard, I am of one mind with the stoic philosopher, Marcus Aurelius, when the venerable ancient Greek thinker writes, “Thus to a man […]

    In the past when I was young…30 years ago..or so.. the air was still congested with planes. At least in the Netherlands! Anyway, that is my experience. If it weren’t jets, then it was a Boeing E3A Centry and if it wasn’t a Boeing, than you would hear the unmistakable sound of a 2 engine […]

On each page there is a short story or an event experienced by a crew member and there are also simple technical […]
