GREAT AVIATION READS

Ran across two great aviation books at Amazon.com that may be of interest. One is entitled THE LAST FLIGHT OF THE BLUE GOOSE at:

It`s about B-24 bomber that simply disappeared from Fort Myers Army Air Base, Florida in 1942. In 1977, after the death of a former Luftwaffe pilot a bizarre Nazi plot is uncovered and the mystery surrounding the disappearance of the Blue Goose is finally solved.

The other is THE MANNERHEIM LINE at:

It`s about two pilots who meet while flying for the Loyalists during the Spanish Civil War. After the Loyalists surrender they fly freight for a company based in Gibraltar. In 1939, they offer their services to the Finnish government and fly French built fighters during the Russo-Finnish War. After the Finns surrender, both men return to Gibraltar where they are imprisoned. President Roosevelt intervenes and the pilots are released to fly for the British. It`s a great historical read that goes through WWII, the Korean War and the Bay of Pigs
