On the FOURTH day of Christmas my true love sent to me, FOUR books on aviation…

Aviation Century: The Golden Age

Aviation Century: The Golden Age is filled with tales of romance and adventure, of daring and bravado, as pilots break records, astound the public and prepare for war on a global scale. Between the World Wars a new wave of aviation pioneers took the technological advances forged in the heat of battle and applied them to aircraft in exciting new ways. Photographs of preserved and restored museum aircraft and rare archival photographs are used to help tell the story of this Golden Age of flight.

Mid-Air Moose Jaw (1st Edition)

Mid-Air Moose Jaw explores the mystery and expels the rumors of the 1954 mid-air collision over the city of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. A NATO Harvard training plane and a Trans Canada Air-Lines North Star collided in clear weather with the loss of thirty-seven lives. How and why this mid-air collision took place is covered extensively with careful reference to the three Boards of inquiry. Mid-Air Moose Jaw is a tribute to those who paid with their lives to make aviation safer yet never to take that safety for granted.

Spitfire Mk. IX & XVI: Engineered

The focus of this book is to provide the enthusiast with the information needed to super detail the legendary Spitfire Mk. IX and Mk. XVI to a high degree of accuracy. Aircraft illustrators, restorers and modelers will appreciate the thoroughness of the photographs and dimensioned drawings.

Canada’s Air Force: At War and Peace: Volume 3

No-one interested in the history of Canadian military aviation will want to miss this 3-volume series from Larry Milberry! Volume 3 has hundreds of fresh colour photos from the 1950s-60s. Dozens of reminiscences enliven this era. Volume 3 also takes you beyond unification to the 1970s.
