Portals into the Sky: A Collection of Vintage Cockpit Photographs Perfect Paperback – July 23, 2010
Top Customer Reviews
This book was absolutely the perfect gift. He told me upon pouring upon the quality photographs in "Portals into the Sky", that it offered an interesting take on many old planes that he have read about, seen pictures of - - but never from the angle that was presented in this book. "Portals into the Sky" is absolutely is a great book for plane fans of all ages. Mr. Cilio presents a unique perspective of what pilots would see in their cockpit during their flights.
From the front cover to the back the black and white photo's tell the stories along with the technical/history narratives that accompany each photo. Not only are their just pictures of cockpits and planes but the men and women that flew and built them.
Did you ever wonder as I did what it must of been like to fly planes in WW2, the pictures and stories are in this book. It's fascinating to look at the pictures and wonder how we ever got off the ground! As you page through this book you will see just how ingenious our men and women were through trial and error to bring us up to modern day technology.
So, if you are looking for a book that's full of aviation history and that has beautiful detailed black and white photos of days gone by, I encourage you to order Portals In The Sky, you won't be disappointed!!
