I''ll Call You Pod
01968AVI
Having discovered that there is no official RAF history of the 1950s covering a particularly fraught period of the Cold War in Germany, the author decided to write down everything he could remember from that time when he served as part of the RAF’s 2nd Allied Tactical Air Force. This book is based on his memories, supported by the information recorded in his log books, in the hope that it will give future generations a wider as well as deeper view of this era. In addition to recounting the minutiae of RAF life, ‘Pod' recalls his career from National Serviceman to Flight Lieutenant, and the drama of flying the first jet fighters close to the border with East Germany. Part history, part memoir, I'll Call You Pod will appeal to anyone with an interest in aircraft, the Cold War as seen from the air and on radar, and life in Her Majesty's Royal Air Force in the mid-twentieth century.

Colours in the Sky : The History o
25561AVI
Covered in detail is the introduction, demonstration and use of the Lockheed TriStar wide-bodied airliner, the first of the type used in the Inclusive Tour business. Court Line Aviation and Tom Gullick's Clarksons Holidays brought to the forefront the concept of value-for-money Inclusive Tour holidays following the 'vertical integration' business model whereby owning and controlling each step of the holiday allowed the company to make a small profit at every stage. The orange, pink, turquoise and yellow jets brought flashes of colour to dreary British airports, and quickly streamed a multi-coloured rainbow across European skies to Mediterranean destinations and even further afield. Truly they did indeed put Colours in the Sky!
