    Operation Husky was de aanduiding voor de eerste gezamenlijk door Britten en Amerikanen uitgevoerde landingsoperatie, waarbij zowel zee- als lucht- en landstrijdkrachten van beide landen moesten samenwerken. Kort gezegd: het woordje “us” moest door “we” vervangen worden. Een gezamenlijk commando en samenwerkende strijdmachten was toen nog niet vanzelfsprekend. Je wordt geen generaal of admiraal als je ook […]

    The Vietnam War initiated the expansion and diversification of United States air power. After World War II and the Korean War, the U.S. military saw the need to create “heavy attack” bombers capable of being launched from aircraft carriers – which were becoming larger at the time. A-3 Skywarrior: Units of the Vietnam War is […]

    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 […]

    Zo ergens rond mijn 14e jaar vertelde mijn vader dat er zo’n 40 km van ons huis in Nederland een Engels militair vliegveld lag op Duitse bodem, vlak bij de grens; RAF Wildenrath. Dat had ie niet moeten zeggen! Ik ben er in ongeveer 3 jaar tijd zo’n 40 maal geweest en daar ontwikkelde mijn […]

    Bijna alle boeken, die ik over de luchtvaart lees zijn nonfictie. Meestal gaan ze over de geschiedenis van de luchtvaart (de meeste over de tweede wereldoorlog), autobiografieën of persoonlijke luchtvaart belevenissen. Dit (e-)boek is echter een fictief verhaal over de crash van een passagiersvliegtuig en de gebeurtenissen, die leiden tot deze crash. Of de schrijver een […]
