AIRCAM AVIATION SERIES LATE 1960S/EARLY 1970S
LAST FIRST COPIES FOR COLLECTORS
The Aircam Aviation Series Of Books Took A Largely Pictorial Look At Classic Military Aircraft Types, With Only A Short Narrative Text Serving As Introduction. A Companion Series Of Specials Portrayed The Camouflage And Markings Worn By Various Military Air Arms And Flying Units.
After 5-6 Pages Of Concise Text Introducing The Subject, The Remainder Of Each Book Comprised B+W Photographs, 8 Pages Of Colour Profile Artwork And 3-4 Pages Of Small Plan-View Tone Drawings, Showing The Upper And Lower Surfaces Of The Aircraft Illustrated In Colour. The Original Editions Of The First Few Titles Were Printed Entirely On Glossy Paper, But Later Titles And Reprints Appeared With Matt Paper For All Except The Colour Profiles. This Resulted In Rather Poor Reproduction Of Some Of The Photographs.
Subsequent Reviewers Have Cast Doubt On The Accuracy Of Some Of The Colour Profiles, But The Range Of Aircraft Chosen Is Still Impressive And The Colour Schemes Often Unusual. The High Prominence Given To Japanese Aircraft Was Very Unusual For The Late 1960s/Early 1970s. Text written by aeroflight

Good read on the Air Force of the Axis only democratic ally against the massive red airforces thrown against them. The Bombers put together and repaired from the scrap of shot down enemy aircraft. The floatplanes that carried supplies and personnel to so many of Finland's lakes. The trainers where Finland's top aces earned their wings. The aircrew who kept it all flying under horrendus - often Arctic-conditions and relentless operational tempo.
Antonio Luis Sapienza
A valuable book on the Finnish Air Force!!!
Although written in 1969, this book has very nice and detailed information about the Finnish Air Force since its creation in 1918 until 1968. A brief but complete history of the first 50 years of the Finnish Air Force, with a lot of b/w picture and color profiles. There is even a loose page inserted in the book with interesting facts about the Winter and Continuation War against the Soviet Union. Worth reading it!!!
