I first saw a picture of the Convair B-58 Hustler in C.B. Colby’s 1966 book Jets of the World: New Fighters, Bombers and Transports. I discovered the book in the library of Buena Vista Elementary school. The year was 1972 and I was in the second grade. As best as I recall, the library had […]

Station 115 is the story of an U.S.A.A.F. base in Norfolk U.K. in the second world war. Not a story about heroes in the skies but about the people that kept the planes flying and the organisation behind it running. It was a type A airfield that housed the 44th Bombardment Group flying the Liberator B-24 […]

Extraordinary great to see that Jarrod Cotter has succeeded to find a format which totally sets out from previous books I encountered about the legendary Spitfire. Is there a plane more covered and discussed?! Didn’t think so! This book from Cotter is simply a gem that comes on top of the earlier published books…on the […]

Zemke’s Wolfpack…Talking about splendid books! This is one! Compilated with lots of love by the 2 authors… The book starts with a short but powerful description with regards to them to whom this book is contributed; the people that were part of the 56th ‘Fighter group’ (FG). Beautiful and short but intense! The 56th FG […]

Special books they are these 2 volumes about a large group of countries in the continent Africa and then especially in –what the writers call- the ‘Sub-Sahara’. Not that I normally am so interested in the air forces of African counties, but I was simply curious about these air forces of which you seldom hear, because […]

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 […]

The Lightning was my favorite jetfighter controlling the skies in the sixties over England. Of course I have read more books about the Lightning but never so detailed in describing the history and characteristics of this legend. The first test flight took place in august 1954 and it was in service for more then 28 […]
