5.0 out of 5 stars An aviation icon that deserves wider credit., December 30, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: FROM THE GROUND UP (Hardcover)
I have loved Ercoupe airplanes for many years. It was only until recently that I actually became interested in the many things that make them so great, and that led to the discovery of Fred Weick and this great book. It is full of detailed and entertaining aviation history from the early 20th century forward and will be greatly enjoyed by aviation enthusiasts who want to dig deeper on the many contributions that Weick made to the industry during his lifetime (not just the Ercoupe!).

An excellent read that I could hardly put down once I got started with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate text on Earhart's disappearance., December 30, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just finished reading Elgen and Marie Long's book "Amelia Earhart: The Mystery Solved". It was difficult to put down, and was easily read in about 2 or 3 sessions. For some time now I have been an advocate of this "crash and sink" theory simply because it makes the most sense when weighed against the known and proven evidence. This book finally brings it all together in an exhaustive, entertaining format that is well-written and clearly full of academic legitimacy. I found myself with the feeling of actually being along for the ride in 1937 on several occasions while reading. Whether you are an Earhart enthusiast or just curious to learn more following the release of "Amelia" with Hillary Swank, this is an absolute must read.
