Herinneringen van een jachtvliegerMartin Leeuwis Publications2023Dutch704 pg.978 94 90008 321Review written by: Rene Verjans
(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!

Red Dragon ‘Flankers’, China’s Prolific ‘Flanker’ FamilyHarpia Publishing Verlags GmbH2022English254 pg.978-1-950394-10-4Review written by: Rene Verjans
Andreas Rupprecht writes cool books! And who says Rupprecht, says China! This is the umpteenth book of him, published by Harpia Publishing. I am really very happy with this publisher and what they have published till now. On their site it states at the category ‘Strategic handbooks’, only 1 book, but, as far as I am concerned, all the books – also this one – can be stated in this category, when it concerns nowadays airforces or other flying army units. As the quality and information value can be rated as ‘good’!
RAF in Camera – 100 Years on DisplayPen and Sword Books2022English472 pg.ISBN: 9781526752185Review written by: Rene Verjans
When you are talking about the best series of aviation books, then this one is absolutely in my top 3! Why? Just because I can..and must be! This book is 472 pages and contains, just as the other 3 books that were
published in the past years in this series, really beautiful pictures.

(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.

FLIGHT- a visual tribute to military aviation in all its formsRidder Aero Media2022English159 pg.ISBN 978-90-90-35771-3Review 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.
Sky RaiderSea Story Press USA Florida2022English307 pg.B09VZJFNZ7Review 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 […]

Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles- current Types, Ordnance and OperationHarpia Publishing Verlags GmbH2021English184 pg.978-1-950394-05-0Review written by: Rene Verjans
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 […]
