Was wondering if anyone else has ever come across this excellent large format coffee table picture book.

It's filled with awesome artwork and many photos depicting carrier operations.

Hans, I have that book and you are right in that it has some excellent artwork.

I've scanned several to create in-game load screens. The Helcats flying at sundown is one of my favorites.

Got quite a few looks before some one came along who has seen it.

Glad you have had an opportunity to enjoy it.

I believe Paul Stillwell has written a number of Osprey naval books too.

Well, no wonder I couldn't find them looking in my load screens folder - I created screen saver pics of them.
