NASA Pays Tribute to Early Space Pioneer Richard Gordon
The following is a statement from acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot on the passing of former NASA astronaut Richard Gordon:
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 “Implementation Procedures for the Russia-Italy Bilateral Airworthiness Agreement”, announced yesterday in Rome by the Italian Civil Aviation Authority ENAC and the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency FATA, marked an important step for the SSJ100 Program.
The only community to ever receive the George Cross has inevitably built up a few myths and legends. From 1940 to 1942, the island withstood heavy enemy air attack, not only survived but made a significant contribution to the defeat of the Axis in North Africa and supported the invasion and surrender of Italy – Very Highly recommended.
This is the most comprehensive account of the Maginot Line in 1940 and later in WWII. The Maginot Line suffered the basic weakness of all fixed defences but it also offered benefits– highly recommended.
Assassination of War Leaders is as old as history. Taking the head of the enemy can be more productive than launching an invasion. The group of well-known writers have produced a series of accounts of assassination plans and execution, under a sympathetic editor – fascinating read – highly recommended.
The author will be known to readers of The Armourer Magazine, but this is his first book and an excellent start. There have been numerous books on the subject of British women at war during WWI and WWII, but books in any language on German women at war are very rare – Very Highly Recommended.
This new addition to the very popular Air War Archive series follows the established pattern of concise text, captions, extended captions and lavish illustration. The subject was one of the most important German aircraft of WWII but one that is difficult to place within the many different aircraft types – Very Highly Recommended.
This new addition to the very popular Images of War series follows the established pattern of concise text, captions, extended captions and lavish illustration. Most books in this series use largely images from official archives. In this new book many images come from private albums of members of the Division – Very Highly Recommended.
Another excellent book from Dennis Oliver. The Tank Craft series has become very popular with modellers and enthusiasts. This new addition to the range meets the criteria of excellent photographs and drawings with descriptive text and full captions – Very Highly Recommended.
