The cover of this book shows a funny cartoon of a pilot kicked out of his homeland Italy and landing in the desert between the camels. It suggests a light-hearted story of the adventures of a pilot in his flying career. But that is not the case when reading this book. Iwan Anzellotti an experienced […]

Eckardt’s ‘Jet Web’ offers a comprehensive exploration of the development history of turbojet engines from the 1920s to the late 1950s. It primarily focuses on the intricate relationships and collaborations between the United Kingdom (& USA), Germany, and Switzerland in this fascinating journey. While the narrative repeats in parts the well-known ‘Whittle vs. Von Ohain Saga’, it mainly sheds new light on unexpected connections and especially, the significant influence of axial compressor technology from the Swiss-German company Brown Boveri & Cie.
The author, a gas turbine engineer, spent a decade meticulously researching and compiling this remarkable account, resulting in a weighty volume with some 250 informative b/w photographs, technical schemes and detailed drawings. This document provides an overview of the book’s content, emphasizing its unique contributions and the target audience it aims to engage.

The first chapter of this wonderful book contained more or less the basic spar for the rest of the stories to follow. A dramatic event that set the title for this book.

It is really one of the most fascinating and interesting books I have read about airships that explains and proves documented why airships and in particular Britain’s R101 were dangerous and doomed as a global air transport system. The backgrounds of the persons involved in the realisation of R 101 and their motives take an important of the book. Samuel Gwynne is certainly a very good story teller!

This biography of Stanford Tuck was first published in 1956 and as a youngster who had a great desire to become a pilot I have read this book with red ears. Now 60 years later it is still a nice book to read for everyone interested in the history of WW2 and especially in the Battle of Britain were Stanford Tuck played a star role as a fighter pilot with 29 confirmed victories.

(Nederlands) Van alle luchtvaartboeken die ik heb is dit wel een heel bijzonder boek; het is een boek in twee delen. Oorspronkelijk zou het boek 850 pagina’s dik zijn, maar dat werd te gek. Daarom is in overleg met uitgever
Martin Leeuwis besloten gekozen voor een tweedelige set boeken, met totaal meer dan 700 pagina’s op A4-formaat Nederlandse luchtmacht geschiedenis en honderden foto’s. Evert Motshagen is luchtmacht-vlieger en startte in 1954 met zijn eerste trainingsvlucht op een Fokker S-11 om 30 jaar later in 1984 te eindigen op een F-16. Welk vliegtuig vloog hij niet? Wat een carrière!
