This book celebrates the final spaceflight in the Mercury series, flown by NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper, who led an adventurous life in the cockpit of airplanes and spacecraft alike, and on his Mercury mission he became the last American ever to rocket into space alone. He flew in the Mercury and Gemini programs and served as head of flight crew operations in both the Apollo and Skylab programs. Based on extensive research and first-person interviews, this is a complete history of the Faith 7 flight and its astronaut. Cooper later gained notoriety following the release of the movie, The Right Stuff , in which he was depicted by Dennis Quaid, but Burgess discovers there was even more drama to his story. It completes the Pioneers in Early Spaceflight subseries in fitting fashion. Colin Burgesss first book, The Diggers of Colditz was published simultaneously in the U.K. and Australia in 1985. His next few books were on the Australian prisoner-of -war experience and then he turned his efforts to writing about his principal interest: human space exploration. Colin has written a number of books on the subject for the University of Nebraska Press and Springer-Praxis. The books he has written or co-authored for Springer-Praxis are NASAs Scientist-Astronauts, Animals in Space, The First Soviet Cosmonaut Team, Selecting the Mercury Seven, Moon Bound, Freedom 7, Liberty Bell 7, Friendship 7, Aurora 7, and Sigma 7. Colin also wrote Interkosmos (2016) with co-author Bert Vis, and a history of NASAs Group 5 and 7 astronauts with co-author David J. Shayler. In addition, he is the series editor and sometimes author for the Outward Odyssey series of books on the social history of space exploration for the University of Nebraska Press.
Die Boeing 767 ist ein Mittel-, Langstreckenflugzeug, das von Boeing Commercial Airplanes gebaut wird. Die Boeing wird in 3 Rumpfsegmenten hergestellt. Die 767 war das erste Großraumflugzeug mit einem Zwei-Personen Cockpit, was den Flugingenieur unnötig machte. Das Außenmodel wurde bis ins kleinste Detail nachempfunden und das Instrumenten-brett simuliert alle Flugzeugsysteme mit sehr großer Detailgenauigkeit. Ein realistisches Flugmodel mit einer unglaublich visuellen Qualität lässt dieses Flugzeug so realistisch wie möglich erscheinen.
This was the first book to cover all of Cold War air combat in the words of the men who waged it. In I Always Wanted to Fly, retired United States Air Force Colonel Wolfgang W. E. Samuel has gathered first-person memories from heroes of the cockpits and airstrips. Battling in dogfights when jets were novelties, saving lives in grueling airlifts, or flying covert and dangerous reconnaissance missions deep into Soviet and Chinese airspace, these flyers waged America´s longest and most secretively conducted air war. Many of the pilots Samuel interviewed invoke the same sentiment when asked why they risked their lives in the air - "I always wanted to fly." While young, they were inspired by barnstormers, by World War I fighter legends, by the legendary Charles Lindbergh, and often just by seeing airplanes flying overhead. With the advent of World War II, many of these dreamers found themselves in cockpits soon after high school. Of those who survived World War II, many chose to continue following their dream, flying the Berlin Airlift, stopping the North Korean army during the "forgotten war" in Korea, and fighting in the Vietnam War. Told in personal narratives and reminiscences, I Always Wanted to Fly renders views from pilots´ seats and flight decks during every air combat flashpoint from 1945 to 1968. Drawn from long exposure to the immense stress of warfare, the stories these warriors share are both heroic and historic. The author, a veteran of many secret reconnaissance missions, evokes individuals and scenes with authority and grace. He provides clear, concise historical context for each airman´s memories. In I Always Wanted to Fly, he has produced both a thrilling and inspirational acknowledgment of personal heroism and a valuable addition to our documentation of the Cold War. The book is published by University Press of Mississippi. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Seitz. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/009724de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

There is a conspiracy to force Lis Miller to date men so socially inept even their mothers doubt their marriageability. A series of dates, each one more awful than the last, brings Lis to Jake, the pilot. In his tinkered together airplane, Jake flies Lis inverted to Block Island where she´s treated to a gourmet meal of fried Mars Bars. Eager to escape the ceaseless matchmaking, Lis boards a jet to California. En route, the flight makes national headlines, and who´s sitting in the cockpit? Jake. With Jake in her world, life is more upside down than right-side up. But just maybe that´s not a bad thing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kerri McCann.

One of the most amazing feats of modern life is the frequency with which airplanes safely take off and land: about 40,000 times a day in the United States alone. Commercial aviation is by far the safest mode of transportation and is becoming safer all the time. But on the exceedingly rare occasion that a plane does crash, comprehensive accident analysis, thorough investigation, and implementation of remedial actions significantly reduces the probability of an already remote event ever recurring. Plane Crash, an unprecedented collaboration between mechanical engineering professor George Bibel and airline Captain Robert Hedges, shares the riveting stories of both high-profile and lesser-known airplane accidents. Drawing on accident reports, eyewitness accounts, and simple diagrams to explain what went wrong in the plane and in the cockpit, Hedges provides invaluable insight into aviation human factors, while Bibel analyzes mechanical failures. No prior scientific knowledge is needed to understand the principles and procedures this book describes, only an interest in the view from what Captain Hedges describes as ´´the best seat in the house.´´ Organized around the phases of flight¿takeoff, climb, cruise, approach, and landing¿this book is a captivating look at some of the most dramatic plane crashes of the modern age, including Asiana Airlines 214, Air France 447, and Malaysia Airlines 370. If you have ever wondered what goes through a pilot´s mind as a flight takes a turn for the dangerous, what impact turbulence actually has on flight safety, or even just how the wonders of aeronautics work to keep passengers safe day in and out, Plane Crash will both fascinate and educate.
