New Book out by BA Pilot!

Mon Nov 21, 2016 3:13 am

https://www.theguardian.com/global/2016 ... ot-careers

BA F/O Mark Vanhoenacker has a book out "Skyfaring" that should be of great interest to aviation enthusiasts, praised to the skies for it's lyrical writing by the Guardian. It also talks about our very own Aviateur (Patrick Smith) whose writing I find inspiring too.

My first post after many years and hope I didnt break any rules.

I believe this book has been out for a long time. I read that book several years ago and it is excellent but it is not "brand new"

Sorry, but you are right, peterj324 - The Guardian article does not implicitly say that this is a new book. Should the mods delete the thread (since its incorrect) or change title and keep it since it may be of interest to a.netters?

Came out in April 2015. It's no 'Hard Landing' or 'Skygods' but it's a good read.

The man not only is amazing at putting words together -and coming up with eloquent thinking!- but is also very sexy looking..

Thanks for the suggestions - I'll have to put "Hard Landing" and "Skygods" on my list too!
