Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
I'm enjoying this book, but have the feeling that it would have benefitted from better editing. I know that this sounds picky, but here are some avoidable errors:

Billy Bishop (p.55) attended, not the "Royal Military Academy", but Royal Military College of Canada at Kingston, Ontario.

Canadair (p.78) did not produce "Rolls-Royce Avon-powered versions of the F-86 Sabre"; Canadair's Sabres were powered, not by Avons, but by Avro Orenda engines.

Raymond Collishaw (p.96) flew with the Black Flight of No.10 Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service.

Douglas McCurdy (p.207) flew the "Silver Dart", not the "Silver Duck" on 23 February 1909.
