    Review written by: Joris Gonggrijp

    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 […]

    Review written by: Max Heldring

    The best review that described this book is probably the introduction by Daniel Kilburn and Luke Seaber published in the first paragraph. They dig deep into the character of Robert Owen whose life as a pilot instructor is described in this novel. They explain to the reader what symbolisms and metaphors Rhys uses to show […]

    Review written by: Rene Verjans

    Dirk Jan de Ridder is addicted to aviation photography and that delivered him beautiful pictures. Since he was 7, when he visited an aviation show at Gilze Rijen for the first time, he is ‘sold’ to aviation and more specific and foremost, military aviation. Throughout the years he makes trips to 23 different countries all over the world, which supplied him with pictures of planes and helicopters from 71 countries! Dirk Jan now decided to unite the most beautiful
    ones in a book.

    Review written by: Max Heldring

    Reading this book I am not really sure whether this review should belong in AviationBookReviews because the title does not cover the load entirely. Duke Thomas, the main character in this book, is an  “ace” during the First World War and servicing the USAAF with a big passion namely the archaeology of the Middle East […]

    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 […]
