Pitts Action photos
Both Simulated and Real Photos of the Pitts Aerobatic Airplane in Action. The Pitts is the most popular and successful aerobatic aircraft every built.  This exhibit not only shows the Pitts biplanes in action, it actually shows very detailed photos of Pitts airplanes being built, step by step.  The exhibit has planes built by a number of different builders so you can see many variations of the aircraft being flown and being built.  There are even close up pictures of Radio Controlled Pitts being built to see how custom builders build model Pitts biplanes too. Most of the photos in this exhibit were taken by the Webmaster who assisted in the construction of these airplanes.  C. Jeff Dyrek.

American Aces of World War I (Osprey Aircraft of the Aces No 42) (Paperback)
by Norman Franks (Author), Harry Dempsey (Illustrator)
 "When World War 1 began in August 1914 and Germany invaded France and Belgium,

Book Description
American fliers arriving in Europe from September 1917 brought with them no aircraft. Instead, US units had to obtain machines mainly from the British and French. From early 1918 American pilots were issued with SPAD fighters and they never looked back. As this volume details, the first American trained pilot to become an ace was Lt Douglas Campbell, who shot down five German aircraft by the end of May 1918. He was a member of the celebrated 94th 'Hat in the Ring' Aero Squadron, which created the bulk of American aces in World War I.

From the Publisher
Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series combines full color artwork, the best archival contemporary photography, and first hand accounts from aces to bring history's greatest airborne conflicts to life.
