    (English) This book is a monument for the Learjet and Bill Lear written with an unbelievable amount of technical information supported by visual printed content, drawings of modifications and a great amount of photographs. A must for every LJ pilot or business pilot and their worldwide users. The authors must have worked on this for years because all technicalities are well researched and detailed described. I am sure competition must have acquired this book also. The company delivered the last Learjet in May 2021 having produced 3056 models.

    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’!

    published in the past years in this series, really beautiful pictures.

    (English) As the author said in his preview “strap yourself in the jump seat” and let Scot Gibson (the main person in this book ) fly you around the world.  And that is what this book is all about. You fly with Scot during his active career as a pilot in so many different planes and different disciplines that it also a book for non aviators who are interested in the aviation world.

    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.

    Dit is weer zo’n boekje van ‘yes, zo wil ik ze liefst allemaal lezen!’. Peer Dekkers is gepensioneerd Luchtmachtvlieger en heeft zowat alles gevlogen wat er maar los en vast zit lijkt het. Ik zie zelfs de F-84 nog in zijn lijstje staan. Dat zegt genoeg. Maar ook de F-104 en F-16 en…duizenden uren ervaring […]

    (English) 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.
