Synopsis

The Big Book of Flight by Rowland White

Reviews

This is a fabulous book. I defy anyone with even the slightest interest in aviation not to utterly love every page. Sumptuously illustrated, this tells the story of flight with unashamed enthusiasm and erve. Read this and be swept up into the skies James Holland, author of Dam Busters A gorgeous fact and fun-filled tome dedicated to planes. From the perfect paper plane to how helicopters fly - with practical fun thrown in Guardian A fact-packed delight for aviation enthusiasts aged from nine to 90, full of derring-do ... an engaging and entertaining collection of everything worth knowing about the world of flight RAF News I could bang on at length about this book. It's a roll call of legends and heroes. It's the work of someone genuinely obsessed with his subject yet gifted with the ability to make his obsession inclusive rather than exclusive. From end to end it's stuffed with the kind of anecdotes that can swiftly be passed of as one's own. But I'll treasure The Big Book of Flight just because it's joyful and joyous. Read it and you'll surely detect the hand of an expert - but more than anything else it reveals the breathless excitement of a young boy. Some vitally important part of Rowland White has never grown up, never forgotten why flying machines make his heart beat faster. It's a delight to see Neil Oliver, presenter of Coast

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
