    (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.

    THE FIRST NUCLEAR WAR. In 1973 I was 2 years old and that is exactly the reason why I didn’t know about this ‘war’. And then it is very nice that this book of Helion & Company crosses my path to change that! It is a book from the ‘Middle East & War-series’ of which […]

    Sometimes I am jealous of the British! (and sometimes also not, by the way!) But now I am, when reading this beautiful colourful book of Flight Craft; what an aviation history has been created in a couple of decennia! And here we are just talking about the 1945-1975 years that are described in this book. […]
