    As the author said in his preview “strap yourself in the jump seat” and let Scot Gibson (the main person in this book ) fly you around the world.  And that is what this book is all about. You fly with Scot during his active career as a pilot in so many different planes and different disciplines that it also a book for non aviators who are interested in the aviation world.

    (Nederlands) Yes! Here is another book of one of the most beautiful series that I collect! This time ‘Cuban Migs’ -and for the people that do not know the books of Harpia Publishing-; a great book that is part of a large series of books that, in the meantime, is published by them.

    John Llewelyn Rhys gained his pilot’s licence in 1934 and joined the RAF as a Reservist in the following year. He already had some writing experience and demonstrated his talent for it. He kept on flying until his untimely death in 1940 aged 29. So not much writing of this short lived pilot survived. England […]

    289th Review Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles- current Types, Ordnance and Operations- Dan Gettinger Of course, it had to happen one day; a review of a book about unmanned aircrafts. And to be honest, I resisted a bit against it, against books about this type of planes, because these planes do not reflect the romanticism that […]

    (Nederlands) Het is Jan toch weer gelukt een 5e boekje van deze soort samen te stellen! Hulde! De eerste 4 had ik ook al en ze zijn niet alleen ‘leuk voor de heb’, maar betekenen voor mij persoonlijk veel meer! Ze representeren voor mij inmiddels een heel stuk mooie, maar ook leuke Nederlandse luchtvaartgeschiedenis.
