Thanks Tom.

As Jack mentioned, special remarqued editions are available through my website. On the same page you can see a small sampling of what's inside the book. I may be a little biased, but I thinks it's going to be a winner. Many of the best and brightest in WW1 aviation have contributed their knowledge to help make this book what it is.

Mate,
No worries. Toot your horn for all its worth and from what I have seen of your work and the talents that you collected for the book, only wish I was part of it. Oh well - maybe next time.

Best of luck and continued fortunes.

Off to the Printer!

Guys,

On Monday, May 23, I sent all the files off to the printer. We are on schedule for having books in hand in early August. The book is a beauty!

You will be happy to have your copy of Russell's great art supported by interesting photos and commentary by noted writers.

I will bring some copies for sale to the OTF seminar in October for those who want to see it before buying.

Cheers,
Jack

Do I detect some excitement here?

Seriously.. Congrats on what looks like a fantastic book. See you in Va Beach. Oh course I'll have the book by then...

Tumult in the Clouds is in print!

Tumult in the Clouds is in print! I just now got my advance copy from the printer; the rest of the books should be in hand in early August to ship to customers. The printer did a great job; think you will love the book!

Cheers,
Jack
