Flashpoint Trieste, The First Battle of the Cold War

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This is one of those exciting history books that reads like a novel. Churchill made an inspired choice in deciding to support Tito and his Communist Resistance Army. However, it was a relationship that was not just unlikely, but one with potential fault lines. – Much Recommended.

A book about a pilot by a pilot. The story of Harjinder Singh is extraordinary and its telling long overdue. This is a story of a life of achievement, rising from the lowly rank of Hawai Sepoy to Marshal of the Indian Air Force. – Strongly Recommended.

Moller International/Freedom Motors December 2017 Newsletter

From: Paul S. Moller

MOLLER INTERNATIONAL

The Discovery Channel recently broadcast an interview with me on the show Daily Planet. (We received permission to share this interview with newsletter subscribers, and it can be viewed here.  Please do not share this on social media or we may be forced to take down the video).  I agreed to this interview only because of its emphasis on the Rotapower® engine’s ability to use anaerobically generated (man-made) biogas.  Moller International gets an enormous number of requests from various world wide news agencies to do a story on the Skycar®.  However, until Freedom Motors has the Rotapower® engine in at least limited production, MI is not interested in promoting the Skycar® further.  It only brings additional interest in the Skycar® from the general public, and they also question why MI has not yet produced it.
