5.0 out of 5 stars I dare it not to win your heart, 12 Sep 2011
I bought Vlamgat as part of research for a model aircraft I built (F1 CZ) and I was looking for the 'flavour' of the aircraft in SAAF service. One need not look any further!

This is an outstanding book about the Mirage F1 in its ground attack 'AZ' and air interdiction 'CZ' guises.The book charts the history and many personal stories of the fortunate pilots who flew the F1 , from its selection, air combat and airstrike, to the types retirement. This is however, more than some stodgy history lesson as the author was himself a pilot and knew the other pilots whose stories are told in this book.

A review I read before buying Vlamgat decried the limited 'tactics' described in the book, but in my opinion it is not critical, and actually the tactics described are very readable to a lay reader.

Vlamgat is a superb read, not only for the aviation buff, but for anyone who is interested in flying, the SAAF, the 1980's border conflict or any Mirage fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rogue Trooper, 6 April 2009
This is a really superb first book of the Rogue Trooper Progs found in AD 2000 comics. I was really pleased to find there is a collection of the Progs in a sries of books, far more pleasant than wading through endless comic books!

As this is the first book, it gives you the background to Rogue Trooper and how he came about to be cutting around Nu Earth doing his own thing.
The presentation of this collection is superb, a quality binding and one that will definitely be re-read over the years, and an essential book for any fan of The Trooper.

Type in Rogue Trooper on Wikipedia to find out more about Rogue if you don't know the full synopsis of his character/life.

Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Airwolf Fans Rejoice!, 26 Mar 2006
This review is from: Airwolf: Season One [DVD] (DVD)
Finally, the complete first season... Well, after having our appetites whet by the four season 'threebies' that Playback released, we finally get the full first season. The 2 disc set is a much welcome release for all Airwolf fans, as we finally get the pilot episode. The full season comes on two double sided discs and is an absolute joy to own. This is a well thought out and produced DVD set which I would recommend for any Airwolf fan. Hopefully all four seasons will be released by the company, as I'm sure there's enough of a demand. Seriously, don't delay, get it today!
