Description

( … ) Come to Canada's famous Abbotsford International Airshow. Watch Chuck Lyford roll a P - 38 at minimum altitude with both engines out and props feathered ! ( … ) This beautifully - organized three day spectacular has action for every taste and " Airshow " shows you some of the best.

 

Come to the Reno National Air Races and experience the world's fastest, loudest motorsport, air racing ! ( ... ) Listen as the pilots share with us personal comments about themselves, their machines, and the incredible sport of air racing.

 

" Airshow " also highlights the jet demonstration teams. This beautiful air show feature act is the thing closest to author's heart, and " Airshow " contains the most spectacular group of photographs of these aerial ballets ever published.

 

( ... ) This is a personal book unlike any book ever published in the aviation field. There are enough facts, figures, weights, and measures to satisfy most aviation statisticians but frankly, there are not the reason for this book's existence. " Airshow " is primarily directed at the senses and that's where it hits ! ( ... )

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Bill Johnson

Bill Johnson ( 1931 - July 7th, 2009 ) was born in Temple ( Texas, United States ). 


A Christmas gift of a reconditioned antique alto saxophone came along in 1942 to give pudgy idle hands something interesting to do, and he occupied himself with jazz saxophone playing through a rather undistinguished high school career, a totally undistinguished two - years stint at Texas Christian University ( Fort Worth, Texas ), and a harrowing tour of military service as an Air Force musician. 


Deciding to next try the glamorous field of illustration, Bill Johnson moved to San Francisco ( California, United States ) and art school. There has followed an interesting and varied life that has included : several years as a freelance illustrator / designer in San Francisco and New York City ( New York, United States ), teaching illustration and art direction, painting, advertising art direction, and aviation photography.


In his obituary ( published in The Seattle Times from July 14th to July 15th, 2009 ), Bill Johnson is described as such : 


Bill had enough talent, ability, kindness and humanity for ten people and he will be missed proportionally. He followed in the footsteps of his mother in his passion for airplanes and he probably flew faster than 99 % of the people reading these meager words of grief. He was a legend in the fields of illustration and advertising art direction and it will be a time well in the future that his achievements are ever equaled.
