    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.
