Thanks a lot, Ted. Interesting review, perhaps the book is worthwhile.Like you, I see no need for the reviewer's conclusion - it seems somewhat tenuous, not really justified by the tragic events of last year. And it is hard to see what the "Holocaust" has to do with an air show.D'Annunzio is certainly one of the prides of aviators everywhere - an extremely talented writer who shared our passion for flight. And there are so many like him - Falkner (Faulkner) immediately comes to mind.Best regards.Luis
