More About the Author

My interest in writing grew out of a combination of photography and history and progressed from magazine articles to books. 2009 is my 75th year of photographing aircraft and my hope is to document some of this for future generations to appreciate. Reading "Dime Novels" in the early 1930s about flying led me to model building, photography, a pilot's license and three years in the AAF in World War II followed by another three in the California Air National Guard. I have had a lifelong interest in Navy aircraft and in 2006 I was honored with the Admiral Radford Award for excellence in naval aviation history and literature. "Alameda Naval Air Station" is now in print and future books will cover the postwar Nonsked aircraft, and Seaplanes of California.

Format: Hardcover
U.S. Navy Aircraft 1921-1941/U.S.Marine Corps Aircraft 1914-1959 by William T. Larkins is the best book I've found on Naval Aviation. Would love to see a book like this up to the present.
This is really a great book.

This book couldn't hold more pictures of more aircraft, and the information on each, plus the air wings and squadrons that flew them. It was a pleasant surprise to thumb through this book and see page upon page of pictures and information. A very great reference work, and for those who like to look at aircraft pictures, a gem!

Format: Hardcover
I have the original copies, signed by Bill. They are very hard to find, have been out of print for years. This is a great opportunity to pick them up at a reasonable price. Great reference for anyone interested in naval aviation, especially model builders.
