FirstRead


This cool compendium chronicles Canadair’s CL-215, -215T, and Bombardier’s 415 flying boats – the only aircraft purpose-designed to fight wildfires.

And what a striking job MINIMONDE76 have done! The bilingual French-English volume sports 140 hitherto unpublished color photos, several superbly informative 3-view and interior drawings, and – most impressively – 24 gorgeous color profiles.

Note Newfoundland and Labrador’s lovely livery. Savor Saskatchewan’s sleek scheme. And tarry at Thailand’s flashy package. Only one B&W shot haunts this terrific tome!

But all is not glitz and glamour. Frédéric Marsaly and Samuel Prétat add substance to their beautiful book with a complete history. Background, design, development, production, and worldwide use – both civilian and military. Contents competently cover the whole tantalizing tale.

And what a ripping read it is. I happily and hungrily roamed back-to-front – and inside-out. This amazing account utterly encourages sampling and savoring!

 

 

Conclusion


Building HELLER’s 1:72-scale CL-215? Seeking stunning shots of beautifully painted aircraft? File this outstanding monograph under “must have”!

Rabidly recommended.
