Default Announcing THE book on airshow flying!

For those of you interested in air shows, both military and civilian, , and
whose interest goes WAY beyond the norm and into the very guts of the
subject; I'd like to announce that the consummate book on this subject "Zero
Error Margin; Airshow Display Flying Analyzed " has just been released and
is now available. You will find the name and address of the publisher below
my remarks.
The book has been written by Col. Des Barker, ex member of the South African
Jet Aerobatic Team "Silver Falcons"; fixed wing test pilot, and previous
Commanding Officer of the South African Flight Test Center. Col. Barker is
also a member of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots, and the Royal
Aeronautical Society.
Just to give you some idea of the range of Col Barker's book, it contains
entire sections written as a textbook for those performing and thinking of
performing air show display flying; a vast and comprehensive data base of
air show accidents covering years od data , their causes, the investigative
results; and the remarks of experienced air show pilots on these accidents.
This section alone should become a legal volume suitable for use in a court
of law on the subject of air show safety.
Col. Barker enlisted the help of a team of internationally known air show
demonstration pilots both military and civilian and asked each to contribute
something of their individual expertise to the book. This section is
literally a textbook on low altitude air show demonstration flying and is
probably unique in the world in this respect.
Much effort went into this work, and I consider it the best book ever
written on these issues. So vast is the scope of Col Barker's work, that it
should be a must have for demonstration pilots both military and civilian;
every airshow enthusiast in the world; every historian even remotely
interested in airshow flying and safety; and every lawyer interested in
flight safety research connected with the air show environment.
For those interested, the book is in it's first run in South Africa and the
UK, and is being considered for a second printing.
