I received my copy of this book in the post yesterday afternoon. I must say, what a handsome book it is! A nice sturdy hardcover with 255 pages, and beautifully illustrated by the author Terry's fantastic art, as well as many original photos and a lot of text. The book layout is really nicely designed, the aesthetics being most attractive. I have not yet had a chance to read anything yet but I have been discussing this book off and on with Terry for a while and I know the depth of research he has gone to, the amount of discoveries he has made and the myths his research has busted. This book will well and truly set the record straight, as much of the history from that period of pioneering has been misinterpreted in the past. But it also provides the information in a beautifully crafted book that really should be on the shelf of all New Zealand aviation enthusiasts, and all book collectors.
Something else I'd like to add. If you decide to purchase a copy please do so by contacting the author Terry Moyle directly. I understand that from copies sold through retail shops he only gets $4.00, just FOUR DOLLARS!!, per book!! And he won't get that money until 12 - 14 month later. As the author he has had to absorb all the costs of design, purchase of images etc. So if you purchase the book directly from him he will get more from it without the retail middle men taking the lion's share.
