About this Item: Soho Pr Inc, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1994. Trade Paperback. Condition: Fine. Near-fine condition - NO writing, marks or tears - Tight spine - Bright pages - NO remainder marks or price clippings - 373 pages - Fredrika is accomplished, privileged and utterly committed to becoming a pilot. To achieve this goal she must defy her family and the provincial middle-class society into which she was born. She becomes an Olympic glider pilot, a national heroine. Driven by ambition, she learns to fly propeller planes and dreams of jets and rockets. Volunteering daily for the most hazardous flights, Freddy forces the Luftwaffe to accept her. The only woman flyer in military service, she becomes Germany's top test pilot. Her courage and daring belie the Nazi prescription for German womanhood: kinder, kuche, kirche. But she has put her talents at the service of evil, a fact brought home to her when she falls in love with a woman, putting them both in peril. Seller Inventory # 018594

About this Item: Pen Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This comprehensive overview of the Me.262 was compiled by Emmy Award winning historian Bob Carruthers. It draws heavily on post-war interviews with Luftwaffe pilots and staff officers to produce a fascinating insight into the Me.262 at the tactical and operational level. Also featured are rare English translations of contemporary interviews concerning the 262 with Adolf Galland and Hermann Goering, along side the views of test pilot Hans Fey and Flug Kapitan Wendel who flew the aircraft in combat sorties. They provided an absorbing study, from a unique series of primary sources, of the world of the Me.262 and its pilots, and conveys to the modern reader a vivid sense of how they were viewed at the time. Also included is the complete pilot s flying manual which affords a fascinating insight from the cockpit into the realities of piloting the world s first operational jet fighter.

About this Item: iUniverse, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This handbook concerns the collection of Air Technical Intelligence, and the test flying of war prizes carried out by two RCAF bomber pilots who were posted to the Royal Aircraft Establishment s Foreign Aircraft Flight, Farnborough, in the United Kingdom in May 1945. Their primary task was to visit former Luftwaffe airfields, and to find and fly back any aircraft they deemed worthy of evaluation. The list of aircraft found here does not include every German combat aircraft of the Second World War, as it focuses on those warbirds captured and flown by members of the RCAF, or sent to Canada as war prizes. Very few of these rare aircraft exist today, and therefore, information on known locations where German, Japanese and Italian warbird survivors may be found is included. As a member of the Canadian Aviation Preservation Association and the Canadian Aviation Artists Association, the author strongly supports the preservation of Canada s aviation heritage. The primary intent of this handbook is to provide information for aviation artists and enthusiasts looking for that unusual never before painted military aviation subject, and to support the efforts of those engaged in the search for those missing warbirds for which no examples currently exist.

Three ex-U.S. Air Force men recruit the daughter of a British aircraft company executive, herself a Royal Air Force test pilot, to attempt the recovery of three World War II German jet fighter planes from a partially bombed-out underground asembly plant. With a rogue German policeman moving to stop them, they attempt to escape and secretly fly the antique planes to England. A crippled and reclusive ex-Luftwaffe fighter pilot initially opposes the Americans, but fearing that the German government will jail him, he joins in the adventure to covertly fly the ancient planes to England.

About this Item: Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, 1989. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Xiv, 402 pages, well illustrated, cloth, DJ, very good. Embossed label of the previous owner, a noted aviation collector. From Publishers Weekly: "In this collection of thoughtful reminiscences, 26 men and two women look back on their WW II experiences in military aviation and briefly review their subsequent careers. Former pilots have their say, along with a bombardier, a ball-turret gunner, a navigator, a carrier landing-signals officer, a flight surgeon and a crew chief. Many of the participants in this oral history project remained in aviation after the war, some as pilots on active duty in Korea and Vietnam, others as test pilots, aerospace engineers, airline mechanics. Melodrama has a low priority here; most of these veterans are more interested in recalling the good times than the bad, their fascination with airplanes and their personal sense of fulfillment at having taken part in the air war.".

About this Item: Sybertooth Inc, Canada, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Bandy is back! It s 1940, and the intrepid air ace of WWI is eager to join the fight against Germany. Unfortunately, everyone seems to think Bandy is too old to be flying Spitfires, and should go quietly into retirement to polish his medals and knighthoods. Bandy, however, has other ideas, and uses his friends and/or enemies in high places to manoeuvre himself into the Battle of Britain. Between being mistaken for a Nazi spy, a communist, or a Chelsea pensioner, Bandy has as much trouble on the ground as he has in the air with the Luftwaffe, and when his son arrives on the scene, his troubles only get worse. This edition also includes Donald Jack s novelette Where Did Rafe Madison Go? Jack wrote the story just as the fate of the Avro Arrow jet fighter was still up in the air (the first test flight taking place in March 58, and the programme s termination coming only four months after the story was published). In Where Did Rafe Madison Go? Jack imagines a future delta-winged descendant of the Arrow, the CF-108, and takes us through the RCAF court martial that is trying to uncover the explanation for the plane s mysterious disappearance, an incident that even the pilot, Rafe Madison, doesn t understand.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. It is 1941 and the Luftwaffe rules the skies over Europe. Werner Wissemann, son of Willi Wissemann The Black Eagle of Bavaria, wages war on the enemies of Nazi Germany from the cockpit of his Messerschmitt Bf-109 fighter, scoring kills against the RAF in JG-26 and then in JG-27 against the Red Air Force in Russia. Once in North Africa, he begins to assert his prowess over his Commonwealth opponents, running up a prodigious tally, fast approaching his father s Great War record of 33 victories. But all is not well in his world. Young Werner is relentlessly pursued by Gestapo Agent Bruno Keppler, a persistent and ruthless man with an old score to settle. Keppler believes Werner Wissemann is a murderer, killing a fellow Gestapo agent and a French prostitute, one cold December night in Paris. What follows is an ongoing chase that leads to Keppler to Berlin, North Africa, then Rome, then to Paris again, as he pursues the young Luftwaffe officer across Europe, determined to bring him to justice no matter what. Willi Wissemann, now a middle-aged married man and director of a successful aircraft manufacturing company, balances a career beset with one challenge after another. After a two year stint as Kommandant of a fighter pilot school, he resumes his career and begins work on a secret project for the Reich Air Ministry-a rocket-powered pilotless plane. What follows are whirlwind episodes of failed test flights, petty jealousies, epiphany, espionage, revenge, and a climatic court hearing in Berlin. In the end, Willi must choose between serving the Fatherland faithfully or saving his wife from a life threatening disease. All this, while World War II rages completely out of control. The final episode of the Eagle and the Albatros and Only the Eagle Dares air combat series. Seller Inventory # APC9781523413997

About this Item: Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, 1989. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Xiv, 402 pages, well illustrated, cloth, DJ, very good. Embossed label of the previous owner, a noted aviation collector. From Publishers Weekly: "In this collection of thoughtful reminiscences, 26 men and two women look back on their WW II experiences in military aviation and briefly review their subsequent careers. Former pilots have their say, along with a bombardier, a ball-turret gunner, a navigator, a carrier landing-signals officer, a flight surgeon and a crew chief. Many of the participants in this oral history project remained in aviation after the war, some as pilots on active duty in Korea and Vietnam, others as test pilots, aerospace engineers, airline mechanics. Melodrama has a low priority here; most of these veterans are more interested in recalling the good times than the bad, their fascination with airplanes and their personal sense of fulfillment at having taken part in the air war.".

If we would have had the Me.262 at our disposal, we could have stopped the American daytime bombing offensive, that s for sure.

It draws heavily on post-war interviews with Luftwaffe pilots and staff officers to produce a fascinating insight into the Me.262 at the tactical and operational level. Also featured are rare English translations of contemporary interviews concerning the 262 with Adolf Galland and Hermann Goering, along side the views of test pilot Hans Fey and Flug Kapitan Wendel who flew the aircraft in combat sorties. They provided an absorbing study, from a unique series of primary sources, of the world of the Me.262 and its pilots, and conveys to the modern reader a vivid sense of how they were viewed at the time. Also included is the complete pilot s flying manual which affords a fascinating insight from the cockpit into the realities of piloting the world s first operational jet fighter.
