"Iíve always had a "thing" for airplanes.
When I was a kid, I built airplane models, and flew orientation flights with Civil Air Patrol.
In the last few years, Iíve had flight sims, web sites, internet friends who share my enthusiasm
for aviation, air shows, museums, and now at last, real flying lessons. But in between, there were
a lot of years when I could only get my aviation 'fix' from books - so I built up quite a library
(it doesnít help that Iíve also always had a 'thing' for books).
