Smithy: The Life of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, Ian Mackersey
11 Ian Mackersey Smithy: The Life of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith
Warner Books 239957 Great Britain 1998 0751526568 / 9780751526561 Softcover Very Good Condition During his brief 38 years of life, Sir Charles Kingsford Smith (1897-1935) was one of the most celebrated public idols in history, becoming for a few years in the late 20s and early 30s a legend across the world for his brilliance as a pilot and his charismatic style among the pioneers of long-distance flying. The first person to fly an aircraft across the Pacific from America to Australia (in 1928) he broke many solo flying records, and this brought him a status greater than any modern astronaut - a crowd of 300,000 greeted him in Sydney. But the price of his heroism was high and the demands for celebrity and a messy private life ended in tragedy off the coast of Burma in 1935 in an attempt to fly from England to Australia. This biography explores his life and flying career. 454 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Air Force: Inside the New Era of Australian Air Power, Ian McPhedran
12 Ian McPhedran Air Force: Inside the New Era of Australian Air Power
HarperCollins 241831 Australia 2011 0732290252 / 9780732290252 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition The inside story of the modern Royal Australian Air Force and its people in an action-packed period of air power from East Timor and the Bali bombings to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Ian McPhedran takes us on another exclusive journey, this time to the heart of the RAAF through personal stories of fighter pilots' bombing raids over Iraq, hi-tech spy planes over Afghanistan, the operational nerve centre of the Middle East war and the men and women who deliver humanitarian aid and alleviate suffering around the world. This is the compelling narrative in the RAAF's 90th year of its aircraft, traditions and personalities, from the corridors of power in Canberra to far-flung bases around Australia and the world, in more than a decade of rapid change as technology propels it into the next generation of air power and the futuristic era of stealth. Air power was a key deterrent during the 1999 East Timor crisis, when F-111s were sent to Tindal in the Northern Territory and used for reconnaissance flights over the island. The RAAF has been very busy on operations around the world, from F/A-18 Hornet fighters dropping bombs on Saddam s palaces in Baghdad to Hercules C-130 and huge C-17 transport planes supporting war fighting and humanitarian missions all over the globe. Then there are the P-3 Orion spy planes flying clandestine night missions throughout the Middle East or using their high-tech imaging equipment to find lost yachtsmen in the Southern Ocean. 374 pages. Tanning to page edges. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Aviation::Air Force; Aviation; ISBN/EAN: 9780732290252. Inventory No: 241831.

QF32, Richard de Crespigny
17 Richard de Crespigny QF32
Pan Books 237713 Australia 2012 1742611176 / 9781742611174 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket On 4 November 2010, a flight from Singapore to Sydney came within a knife edge of being one of the world's worst air disasters. Shortly after leaving Changi Airport, an explosion shattered Engine 2 of Qantas flight QF32 - an Airbus A380, the largest and most advanced passenger plane ever built. Hundreds of pieces of shrapnel ripped through the wing and fuselage, creating chaos as vital flight systems and back-ups were destroyed or degraded.In other hands, the plane might have been lost with all 469 people on board, but a supremely experienced flight crew, led by Captain Richard Champion de Crespigny, managed to land the crippled aircraft and safely disembark the passengers after hours of nerve-racking effort.Tracing Richard's life and career up until that fateful flight, QF32 shows exactly what goes into the making of a top-level airline pilot, and the extraordinary skills and training needed to keep us safe in the air. Fascinating in its detail and vividly compelling in its narrative, QF32 is the riveting, blow-by-blow story of just what happens when things go badly wrong in the air, told by the captain himself. 358 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: aviation; Aviation; ISBN/EAN: 9781742611174. Inventory No: 237713. Paperback
