I went into Wrights Bookshop in Cambridge today and I spotted a new book that I'd never seen nor heard of before called 'Classic Planes' by Ivor Wilkins. the book is HUGE, at a guess it's 50mm thick, maybe more, and wow it's so heavy. I had a quick flick through and it is a gorgeous production, with loads of photos and lots of history of New Zealand aviation. The price was $95.00. I took a snap of the cover and thought I'd give a heads up to the book lovers here.

I noticed that book at Paper Plus in Masterton about a week ago and picked up a copy and thumbed through it, but I've got so many NZ aviation books of roughly that format, that I haven't gone back to it, although I'll possibly purchase a copy eventually, perhaps in the Boxing Day to New Year sales if any of the bookshops around here still have any copies left and on sale for a discounted price, as is often the way at that time of the year.
