    Ever had a rough running engine? Ever made a incorrect calculation of the density altitude? Ever made a wrong decision based on interpretations of the weather forecast? What kind of reasoning and decision-making lead to a happy ending? Or is the ending not so happy? This clever book by Reya Kempley is about our “awareness” […]

    It’s been more than 20 years since Operation Desert Storm took place in Kuwait and Iraq under the leadership of General Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. Iraq invaded the sovereign state of Kuwait and I remember that in the morning of the first air attacks I watched TV and saw Tornadoes take off as part of much […]

    If you love pictures and heavy vehicles you need to ‘read’ this book! Rob Dragt has a fascination for heavy mobile equipment. Earlier he wrote books on special transportation & salvage vehicles. In this book he puts the focus on this type of equipment used to transport ‘written-off-aircraft’ and there is also focus on heavy […]

    Ever heard of this exhibition?! I had not! …. What you will first notice about this book is that it is relatively large. It is printed in A4 size and of excellent quality. When I opened it for the first time I noticed that it was written in a very detail oriented manner and that […]

    It becomes highly dangerous with all those women in the air! And in addition to that Sylvia Spruck Wrigleywrites she has achieved her license! Do we have to be happy with that?! I think yes! It is –also- because this female pilot can write very originally. Ms Spruck Wrigleycomes with a short ‘story’ in which […]

    The best-selling GA aircraft in the world; the Cessna 172! That’s where this book is about. What strikes you first, is that it is a small book (about 17 x 12 cm). The book is 128 pages thick and a ‘must have’ for every Cessna pilot and owner. From start to finish the book is […]

    A very nice book this time by Bart Vandamme from Belgium. For him it all started in October 2001, when he was invited to the annual “Gathering of Eagles” in the city of Lancaster (near Edwards AFB) in California. I never get invited for such gatherings! There he met people like Chuck Yeager, Bill Dana […]

    Topgun! Everyone knows Topgun as the movie Topgun from 1986 with Tom Cruise and his lovely lady. And most of the time that’s it! Topgun is the flashy name for the American Navy Fighter Weapons School, which was founded as navy pilots performed relatively poor in the Vietnam War in comparison to other wars. Nowadays, […]

    It is again the second world war, which yields a very good book. This time it’s a book by a German Messerschmitt 109-pilot who was shot down on October 27, 1940 by a Spitfire over the south east of the United Kingdom. The Battle of Britain was in full swing and not long after that […]
