B-52 Remembrances by Philip Rowe
B-52 Remembrances by Philip Rowe
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, 13 Dec 2013
Reading about the old "Buff" was really good and had some wonderful insights into Jet Bomber Operations in the 1960's. I was surprised by some of the things that went on and there are a couple of sad tales in this book that are part and parcel of any new Technology.
Sea Harrier over the Falklands: The Black Death by Nigel MacCartan-Ward
5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Eye Opener!!, 13 Dec 2013
If you thought you knew all about the Sea Harrier or the Falklands Conflict, Think Again!! "Sharky" Ward Blows the Lid off of some Popular Misconceptions Surrounding some of the major events at that time and the Operation of the Aircraft whilst there. There is a definite Political Edge to this Book and Be Warned he pulls no Punches in His Analysis of the Administration and Hierarchy Surrounding the Conflict in General. That said I couldn't put it Down!!
The Lightning Boys: True Tales from Pilots of the &hellip by Richard Pike
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, 13 Dec 2013
Very good Book, but Didn't make it to the end. I found Half way through it got a bit repetitive on the stories and experiences with this Aircraft. That said if you are a Lightning Fan it IS worth a Read!!
