Sagittarius Rising: The Classic Account of Flying In The First World War, Cecil Lewis
2 Cecil Lewis Sagittarius Rising: The Classic Account of Flying In The First World War
Penguin Books 233347 Great Britain 1977 0140043675 / 9780140043679 Softcover Good Condition The aircraft were parasols, Sopwith Camels, Moranes; the young warriors who flew them were the world's first aces. They piloted their flimsy planes in dawn patrols across no-man's-land and over enemy trenches, dived headlong--guns stuttering--into deadly Richthofen Circus, and dueled with an adversary as brave as themselves. They fought the first--and last--gallant war in the skies. These memoirs of a combat pilot in England's Royal Flying Corps during WW I are a great classic of military aviation, a chronicle of a lost age of heroes and the birth of a new age of flight. 266 pages.

Asia Books 233355 Bangkok 2001 9748303519 / 9789748303512 Softcover Very Good Condition The incredible inside story of the world's most extraordinary covert operation. Air America - a secret airline run by the CIA - flew missions no one else would touch, from General Claire Cennault's legendary Flying Tigers in WW II to two brutal decades cruising over the bomb-savaged jungles of Southeast Asia. Their pilots dared all and did all - a high-rolling, fast-playing bunch of has-beens and hellraisers whose motto was 'Anything, Anywhere, Anytime'. Whether it was delivering food and weapons or spooks and opium, Air America was the one airline where you didn't need reservations - just a hell of a lot of courage and a willingness to fly to the bitter end. 370 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; Thailand; History; Aviation. ISBN: 9748303519. ISBN/EAN: 9789748303512.

Down to Earth : A Fighter Pilot Recounts His Experiences of Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, Dieppe, D-Day and Beyond, K.B. McGlashan [Signed] and Owen Zupp [Signed]
9 K.B. McGlashan [Signed] and Owen Zupp [Signed] Down to Earth : A Fighter Pilot Recounts His Experiences of Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, Dieppe, D-Day and Beyond
Grub Street 233879 London 2007 First Edition 1904943845 / 9781904943846 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine This book has been signed by the Author Owen Zupp as well as Squadron Leader K.B. McGlashan dated 24/9/07. In "Down to Earth" Squadron Leader McGlashan reflects honestly on his enthralling and diverse RAF career, one that began with the rag and tube of Hawker biplanes in 1939 and closed in the jet era of the late 1950s. Shot down over the beaches of Dunkirk in heated aerial combat, we follow the footsteps of the nineteen year old along the debris-littered sands and beyond. From the protection of vulnerable convoys to the pioneering days of night-fighting and airborne radar, McGlashan is in the midst of the action. Flying in support of the ill-fated landing at Dieppe and on clandestine night operations before D-Day, he takes an active role in some of the RAF's most significant operations of World War Two. Interspersed throughout are tales of camaraderie and humour. Away from the front line, McGlashan was seconded to BOAC to fly airliners out of Cairo, tasked to ferry all manner of aircraft at the war's end and serve Cyprus at the height of a very nasty campaign. It is a journey of tremendous diversity, punctuated by a series of close calls and inevitable losses. Half a century later, retired and living in Australia, Kenneth McGlashan is drawn back to 1940 with the discovery of his crashed Hurricane surfacing through the sands of Dunkirk. In an emotional pilgrimage, he is reunited with the steed of his youth and its bullet-ridden cockpit. 174 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
