Recent Aviation Novels

Sun Dec 06, 2015 2:47 am

Anyone reading any good aviation novels lately? I just finished a book called "The Mullah's Storm," by Thomas W Young, very entertaining book, now I'm about to start reading "Equal Time Point," by Harrison Jones. O man, I love those aviation novels, keeps you entertained and reading forever. Some of my past novels that I've read more than a decade ago were by John J. Nance (i.e. Blackout, Hostage, Turbulence, Phoenix Rising, etc.) Very nice very nice.

If you like World War 2 aviation, you should read, "Those Who Fall" by John Muirhead, I just finished it and I was pleased.

Cool, but yea I'm more into recent novels that I enjoy like the commercial jet age and I like to visualize and these books make you laugh, smile, and is pleasing, and mind blowing to read. So far "Equal Time Point," is a fascinating book, I use my precious time to reflect on each Chapter and so forth. You learn so many good beneficial knowledge about aviation terminology, etc.

About 8 months ago I was searching Amazon.com for more aviation fiction and non-fiction novels, and was pleased to find plenty of interesting ones I'm looking forward to read. Here are some, "Last Flight" by Thomas Chase, "Captain" by Thomas Block, "Prestwick" by David Hough, "The Last Hours of their Lives," by Joseph A Wellman. By the way "Silent Enemy," was also entertaining and pleasing by Thomas Young. The military ones are quite interesting as well. The Joe Weber novels are also nice (i.e. Targets of Opportunity, The Flight of the Intruder, The Intruders, etc.)

"Equal Time Point" was a great book to read, very interesting ending. Next I'm currently reading "The Phalanx Dragon," by Timothy Rizzi, looking good so far, its amazing how you learn so much how people act and live and see it in reality as well. I visualize a lot so I can get a good picture. "The Strike of the Cobra," I read in my senior year in high school in 2002 also by Timothy Rizzi, was pleased with it, very fast entertaining keeps you at the edge of your seat.

Yea thanks, but I like the more realistic type that is stern and almost real like. Like have you read "The Last Hostage," by John J Nance, (Kat Bronsky) novel, these kinds of events could be possible in real life, so I like intense drama, fierce, and very captivating novels like this. Take care buddy.

In my mind, the best writer on all things aviation was Antoine de Saint Exupery. He truly captures the magic of aviation when it was in its infancy. However, even those of us who have flown on the most modern of planes will still appreciate his observations. That's why were A-nutters.

Try 'Skyfaring' by Mark Vanhoenacker. It's a beautiful book to read. Mark is a 744 SFO for BA.

I started a group on FB called the International Airline Fiction Database to catalog all of the commercial aviation novels I came across. I've found quite a few titles over the years.

I like the book "The de Havilland Mosquito". The book has the best color profiles and models that will explain the things much easier.
