An airplane plunges into an icy river and the world witnesses the dramatic rescue. Then, life after the Miracle on the Hudson landing puts three families on another crash course...with their own fragile humanity.

Spitfire Wingman from Tennessee: My Love Affair...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As the memoir of an aerobatic master born to fling his body through cloudbanks, Spitfire Wingman from Tennessee offers a unique birds-eye view of events and personalities of WWII and the Cold War. Encounters with Patton, Vandenberg, Yeager, Truman and Nixon are replayed with perception and wit. While jockeying P-40s, P-51s, and P-47s, he was privileged to see the war both from twenty thousand feet and as a Staff Officer at 9th Air Force HQ in Brussels. A stripped-down Thunderbolt fighter-bomber became his personal 400-mph runabout. Jim Haun took life at a run. After his mother’s death just before his ninth birthday, he worked in turn as Western Union bicycle messenger for fifteen dollars a week and work-a-way galley helper on an aging Atlantic freighter. Then, as the Memphis ‘Boy Wonder’ who built his first airplane in 1933 by adapting a motorcycle engine, the Colonel bears nostalgic witness to historic transformations steering manned flight from art toward automated science. This gifted flyer takes you on an intimate journey from barnstormer to dog-fighter, to threading the Himalayan ‘Hump’, to Berlin Airlift commander, then on to Presidential Squadron leader – finally becoming Chief Pilot of MATS. Balancing dry humor with just enough technical detail to please aviation buffs, this self-revealing air-venture thunders on twelve cylinders with sky-sweeping appeal. After retirement from the Air Force in 1965, Haun spent thirty more years as beloved flight instructor, participating in air shows, and building a biplane in his garage. He died peacefully at home attended by his two sons in 2001, six months before his 90th birthday. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colonel James R. Haun, James Robert Haun, Jr., David Hoffman.

Not Just Another War Story , Hörbuch, Digital, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Not Just Another War Story transports the listener back in time in one of the most compelling World War II stories in many years. The author masterfully weaves this true-to-life story through authentic towns and places of conflict that were focal points in the war where we find all the reflections of love, conflict, and hope that wartime brings. It's been six months since the surprise attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor.... Now, it is the spring of 1942.... Steve Carmichael has just graduated from the University of Florida. From the time he was a boy growing up on a Central Florida cattle ranch, he has been flying. His dad had purchased an old mail-route bi-plane when Steve was 11 and, within a year, the youngster was soaring with the birds in the airplane. As young men go off to fight in the war, Steve places a professional baseball career with the Detroit Tigers on hold...making the decision to join the Army Air Corps - his desire is to pilot the four-engine B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber into battle. He has no idea that ahead he will find strength he didn't know he had and a once in a lifetime chance at love. You can almost hear the roar of B-17 engines when you fly along with Steve and his crew as they do battle in the dangerous sky above occupied Europe. Each of the exciting bombing missions flown in Not Just Another War Story is an authentic 305th Bomb Group raid on the enemy. Experience the action-packed air battles of World War II as the airmen try to survive...only to fly into battle on the next mission with the possibility of being shot down over enemy territory. Evading capture and making it safely back to England...with the help of the Dutch-French Underground would most certainly be the key to survival. This is a story of hope, dreams, and love in a war-torn world. Not Just Another War Story places you in a front-row seat as this world War II adventure unfolds. 1. Language: English.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Milliions of people are struggling to find a way out of obesity without knowing they already own the most powerful weight loss device ever made. This simple book written by a simple man explains how mastering our thoughts can influence our behavior, which is responsible for the way we are. Approaching age 50, author Claude Viens was determined to give himself the gift of good health. This time, it had to be something else than those awful diets and exercise plans that had failed him multiple times. He was obsessed with the idea that it didn't have to be hard or complicated. As the Wright brothers observed birds to create their first airplane that actually got off the ground, Claude observed healthy people to reproduce their way of thinking and slowly melt down those 80 pounds he was carrying for no good reason. From day one of this wonderful adventure, he have been jotting down his actions and results that caused the weight to go down and his health to skyrocket. By listening to this book, you will benefit from 35 years of research and reflections. Think of this work as a biography more than scientific and medical facts. As he put it: "I wish somebody would have written this book 35 years ago so I could have benefitted from all of this knowledge." A word from the author: I can't even begin to describe how great I feel now, and I want you to feel the same way. After a life of obesity, I now have the competence and credibility (even though I joke about not being qualified in the book) to pass this life-changing information onto you. Here is the deal: I want you to listen to this book and then get in touch with me to tell me how it's going. I am easy to reach so please give me a shout. By taking action now, you have just made a friend and at the same time, so did I. Are you still reading this? Cool! Congratulations! Your success is just a step away! Talk to you soon! You will find me at www.mostpowerfuldevice.com. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Claude Viens. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/060294/bk_acx0_060294_sample.mp3.

Harmful Health Effects Associated with Aerial S...

Polemic Paper from the year 2018 in the subject Medicine - Pharmacology, grade: 1, Egerton University, language: English, abstract: In the recent years, there has been a growing number of concerns about the cause and effect of using large scale pesticides for crop and general insect control. The concerns have also centered on how these pesticides are applied. There have been correlations made between aerial spraying and its impacts on the health of the general population. Notably, majority of pesticides used in the control of insects are not selective. For instance, Naled, Resmethrin and Malathion have been found to kill all insects. The numbers of insects killed include those help in keeping other insects under control. Additionally, aerial spraying threatens lives of aquatic animals and birds. More importantly, agricultural production is under threat owing to increased usage of pesticides. This is because researchers argue that the continued usage of pesticides can lead to the development of resistance genes in organisms making them hard to control. As a result, farmers incur economic costs and decreased production.With the growing concern over public health and safety, many ways we use to operate have either been changed or eliminated altogether. As examples, the use of lead in house paint and asbestos as an insulation product, have been eliminated. Their removal is highly controlled and regulated. Regulations have been developed to govern the installation of electrical circuits and plumbing product. These have been implemented because of the growing awareness over health and safety.Research has also found that some pesticides used in mosquitoes contribute to immune suppression. Ideally, the suppression of the human system can lead to allergies, cancers, autoimmune disorder and lupus. For instance, Malathion is the mostly used pesticide and can cause neurotoxicity. Malathion can also cause headaches, diarrhea and nausea.It is time to stop aerial spraying and find other, less damaging mechanisms to deal with insect infestations. There is a reason for using aerial spraying of fire retardants for forest fires. The result being everything under the airplane is covered, not just the fire. I am proposing that we should stop the usage of aerial spraying and adopt safer practices to control insects. Aerial spraying has serious ramifications to the population, and to the planet.

What Makes Airplanes Fly?
140,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

How can an airplane weighing many tons stay aloft for many hours, flying so smoothly that the passengers may feel less like they are moving than they would in a car? The answer, of course, lies in the wings and the air they are moving through, and the study of the flow of air around airplane wings is part of the science of aerodynamics. This book is about aerodynamics in the broadest sense. In addition to airplanes, it discusses the aerodynamics of cars and birds, and the motion of diverse object thorugh air and water. The fundamental notions of mechanics and fluid dynamics -- that is, the basic physics underlying aerodynamics -- are clearly explained. The underlying science is discussed rigorously, but only elementary mathematics is used, and only occasionally. To put the science into its human context, the author describes (with many illustrations) the history of human attempts to fly and discusses the social impact of commercial aviation as well as the outlook for future developments. This book is addressed primarily to readers whose background is not in physics or engineering. It will deepen their knowledge of these fields and add to their appreciation of some exciting recent developements in technology. This new edition has been brought up to date throughout; solutions to selected exercises have been added, as well as new problems and other study aids.

Birds in Fall
13,15 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One fall night off the coast of a remote island in Nova Scotia, an airplane plummets to the sea as an innkeeper watches from the shore. Miles away in New York City, ornithologist Ana Gathreaux works in a darkened room full of sparrows, testing their migratory instincts. Soon, Ana will be bound for Trachis Island, along with other relatives of victims who converge on the site of the tragedy. As the search for survivors envelops the island, the mourning families gather at the inn, waiting for news of those they have lost. Here among strangers, and watched over by innkeeper Kevin Gearns, they form an unusual community, struggling for comfort and consolation. A Taiwanese couple sets out fruit for their daughter's ghost. A Bulgarian man plays piano in the dark, sending the music to his lost wife, a cellist. Two Dutch teenagers, a brother and sister, rage against their parents' death. An Iranian exile, mourning his niece, recites the Persian tales that carry the wisdom of centuries. At the center of Birds in Fall lies Ana Gathreaux, whose story Brad Kessler tells with deep compassion: from her days in the field with her husband, observing and banding migratory birds, to her enduring grief and gradual reengagement with life. Kessler's knowledge of the natural world, music, and myth enriches every page of this hauntingly beautiful and moving novel about solitude, love, losing your way, and finding something like home.
