1.0 out of 5 stars Myth., 31 May 2014
The description of this book is false. See my review of the hardback version. This story is not true and is a myth built upon for propaganda purposes. There were more than just three aircraft (12 - 15).

1.0 out of 5 stars This story is a myth., 31 May 2014
The description of this book is false. There is no true story of three aircraft. There were more than three (12 - 15) but they used to fly in threes. As they were all similar the local population thought there were just three. This became a good propaganda myth and was built upon. The remaining part aircraft in the museum is one that was presented after the fact and called 'Faith'. It now rots away in the damp museum because of the wrangling related to the Aviation Museum's offer to renovate it and fit it with wings.
Eleventh Month, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Hour by Joseph E. Persico
5.0 out of 5 stars Tragic, 13 Mar 2014
A well written book about the tragic events (and others) on that day and leading up to it. Highly recommended.
