One thing that I have come to
appreciate in the numerous combined exercises and operations that I have
participated in with the USAF is their excellent Combat Camera
capability. They have the ability to capture some of the most
spectacular images of military equipment and personnel doing
The best of these images often
find their way onto the
USAF Official Website, but many more enter the imagery archives.
Either way it is often hard to
find older images of a particular subject.
In this book Dennis Jenkins has
compiled the best of 2006 from USAF Official sources, bringing together
a range of subjects from the venerable B-52 to the F-35 prototype.
The book is broken down into 12
chapters (one per month) with an average of three full colour images per
page. In total it is a slick package of useful images, all with detailed
captions adding to their reference volume. One image I was particularly
pleased to see was a photo of an RAAF F-111 from a Red Flag deployment
early in 2006.
This volume is of very high
quality and a worthy investment for modelling reference. The book will
serve both history buffs and modellers well. As this is Volume One, I
have high hopes for future books in this series.
