Retro-Review Sunday: Cessna Warbirds (Aviation)
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: YES, with reservations
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION PAGE: Cessna Warbirds
WEB ADDRESS: www.cessnawarbirds.com
BLOG DESCRIPTION: History of the 12,000+ Cessnas sold by military air arms worldwide since World War II. Book excerpts. Articles. Artwork. Military Cessna flight manuals.
MY REVIEW: If you go into the archives (on the web), there are some great and informative articles (about 3-5 a month for 2009).
As an aviation enthusiast (my own aviation blog is - You Fly Girl: Women in Aviation), I was looking forward to learning about Cessna Warbirds, from this blog by Walt Shiel. He’s the author of the book, Cessna Warbirds, as well as T-41 Mescalero, Cessna Warbirds Vol. 1, Devil in the North Woods (Novel) and Pilots and Normal People.
Unfortunately, his blog is not updated as frequently as I would wish - although the last update was February 17, 2010, so I've moved him from the inactive file into the active file.
FYI, Shiel has another blog, www.waltshiel.com, entitled View From The Publishing Trenches, about publishing, which makes for interesting reading also.
