F-4 Phantom
Stock #: KB11159
Author: Tim McLelland

List Price: $88.00
Karen's Price: $74.95

Introductory offer!

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom is perhaps the best known and most popular of all post-WWII military aircraft. Its extremely long and diverse operational history, the huge variety of military roles it has undertaken and its broad international appeal - most notably with the US, Germany and UK - makes it an incomparable Cold War era supersonic aircraft.

When it first emerged towards the end of the 1950s, it represented a generational step from the first postwar jets and later 'Century Series' aircraft, to the modern high-tech fighters such as the F-16. The Phantom was the most significant fighter-bomber aircraft to serve with the US Navy and Marine Corps, and the US Air Force. It was also the most numerous and significant aircraft type to participate in the Vietnam War. Apart from being an iconic US aircraft it was also a hugely successful international design and was purchased by the UK, Australia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Iran, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Spain and Turkey.

This detailed new volume provides an in-depth, comprehensive study of the development of the F-4 Phantom, tracing its full service deployment with the USAF, USN, and USMC, as well as with the air forces of a host of countries around the globe. The author also covers in detail the F-4 Phantom's role both as a tactical nuclear strike aircraft and an air defense interceptor for the US and UK air forces. Hard cover.

Feet Wet: Reflections of a Carrier Pilot
Stock #: KB10390
Author: Paul T. Gillcrist

List Price: $29.95
Karen's Price: $27.95

Paul Gillcrist was a Navy carrier pilot for almost thirty years, from the early days, of flying propeller planes from straight deck carriers, to the days of high-tech, lethal "teen" jets and supercarriers. In his remarkable career - from "nugget", to competent jet aviator, to test pilot, to Vietnam fighter pilot, to air wing commander, to head of "Fightertown, USA," Gillcrist flew the F-8 Crusader, F-4 Phantom, F-14 Tomcat, and a myriad of other tactical aircraft. Available now in a new hard cover reprint edition, Feet Wet (aviator talk for reaching the safety of water) is a chronicle of adventure, heroism, courage, and humor, with some of the most exciting passages ever written on flying. From his magical first flight - the sheer ecstasy of being airborne, to the heart-pounding excitement of his first night "trap," the terror of ejecting from a test plane spinning out of control, to dodging SAMs and jousting with MiGs over Hanoi - Gillcrist takes the reader into his world and vividly conveys what all pilots live for - the tremendous "high" of all-out flying. more»

Firepower: A History of the Aircraft Gun
Stock #: KB10434
Author: Bill Holder & Scott Vadnais

List Price: $19.95
Karen's Price: $18.95

This book covers the history of aircraft armament from the early days of World War I when aviators fired hand-held weapons at each other, through the airborne gun advancements during World War II, and finally up to the modern Gatling Guns of today. With the advent of new air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles, there were those who thought that the day of the aircraft gun was over. In fact, the F-4 Phantom's early versions carried no guns. Experience showed, though, that they were still needed, and later aircraft types saw them returned. The current aircraft of the USAF and U.S. Navy – the F-15, F-16, F/A-18, and F-22 – all carry a rapid-fire Gatling Gun in addition to their missile loads. more»

First in the Field: The 1st Air Division over Europe in WWII
Stock #: KB10228
Author: Ron Mackay

List Price: $59.95
Karen's Price: $54.95

"First in the Field" is a relevant title to describe the pioneer force destined to operate a hitherto un-tested concept in modern aerial warfare: the 1st Bomb Division. The initial period of shallow-penetration missions with a severely under-strength force of B-17s, crews and support equipment was followed by growing and finally unsupportable losses. Nevertheless from early 1944 onward it was becoming clear that what was by then the 1st Bomb Division, had held its ground, often against painful tactical and strategic odds, and in doing so had laid the foundations for the final victory of America's bombing campaign against Hitler's regime. more»

Save 50% !

First published in 2000, Flights of a Coast Dog is Jack Schofield's first book. This third edition of his ever-popular account of flying seaplanes along the British Columbia coast displays the BC Millennium Book Award bestowed on the original edition, and the book is back again in its original hardcover format. Flying seaplanes along the rugged B.C. coast is a demanding job, depending heavily on flying skills and an ingrained knowledge of this challenging country, but more than anything one needs a well-developed sense of humour. Schofield has just that when telling these fascinating anecdotes about the colourful characters who crossed his path and some hair-raising adventures during 20 years of flying Beaver, Otter and Cessna seaplanes. Flights of a Coast Dog is illustrated with over 65 photos and a dozen of the author's own drawings. The book presents a vivid picture of life on a fast-disappearing frontier. Hard cover.

Force Drawdown: A USAF Photo History 1988-1995
Stock #: KB10413
Author: Rene J. Francillon, Jim Dunn, & Carl E. Porter

List Price: $29.95
Karen's Price: $27.95

The end of the Cold War created a golden opportunity for reducing the defense burden and providing taxpayers with a "Peace Dividend." For the United States Air Force, this resulted over the past six years in drastic reductions: 23% in aircraft inventory, 30% in personnel, and 32% in the number of bases and other major installations. Well-known and long-serving aircraft, such as the A-7D/K, the B-52G, the F-4C/D/E, the F-111A/D, the FB-111A and the SR-71, have been withdrawn from active and reserve components, and some states, such as California, have lost nearly half of their Air Force bases. Illustrated with over 410 color photos, this new book provides a rich pictorial record of aircraft (including old and new markings) and units which no longer exist, and offers a visual chronicle of organizational changes between 1988-1995. more»

Although the years from 1952 to 1962 saw the rise and dominance of luxurious piston-powered airliners like the Douglas DC-7, Lockheed Constellation, and Boeing Stratocruiser, revolutionary new jet airliners soon rendered them obsolete. This book celebrates that exciting time period with an in-depth look at all the aircraft that made commercial jet flight possible, comparing these radical new jetliners with the classic propeller-driven aircraft that preceded them. more»
