    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 […]

    How often does it occur that a historical researcher dives deep into the history of a beautiful nostalgic aviation company? Not so very often I believe, DHC-2 but this is in any way a  very successful attempt of the Canadian Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail.

    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.

    I picked up this little jewel in the children’s section of a book store, on a shelf labeled “8 years upwards”. Well, I would love to be 8 all over again, because this is a beautiful book. Over the course of 50 pages or so, it deals with the basic principles of flying, outlines the […]

    Never thought I would write 50 reviews about aviation books, but here it really is: my 50th review! And to think that, as a child, I hated books. I didn’t even read the bubbles in comic strips. I am humbly grateful to all those writers of beautiful books who gradually won me round! I carefully […]

    My interest in British aviation dates from a good 25 years ago when, as a boy I was regularly to be found, practically glued to the perimeter fence of RAF Wildenrath in Germany, jotting down airplane numbers. I’ve fished out the notebook I used at the time. Thumbing through it I see among the entries […]
