Map Of My Dead Pilots from the Author: Colleen Mondor. The Map of My Dead Pilots is about flying, pilots, and Alaska, the beautiful and deadly Last Frontier. Author Colleen Mondor spent four years running dispatch operations for a Fairbanks-based commuter and charter airline, and she knows all too well the gap between the romance and reality of small plane piloting in the wildest territory of the United States. From overloaded aircraft to wings covered in ice, from flying sled dogs and dead bodies, piloting in Alaska is about living hard and working even harder. What Mondor witnessed day to day would make anyone’s hair stand on end. Ultimately, it is the pilots themselves—laced with ice and whiskey, death and camaraderie, silence and engine roar—and their harrowing tales who capture her imagination. In fine detail, this series of stories reveals the technical side of flying, the history of Alaskan aviation, and a world that demands a close communion with extreme physical danger and emotional toughness.

Fundamentals Of Flying Star Feng Shui from the Author: Ulrich Wilhelm Lippelt. Different schools of Flying Star Feng Shui teach different methods. To understand their different concepts and to decide which system to follow, it is necessary to know the fundamentals on which Flying Star Feng Shui is based. The fundamentals of Flying Star Feng Shui are the Time Factor, The Facing Direction and the Interaction of the Five Elements. The Time Factor of buildings represented by the so-called Time Stars, which are the strong fundamental directional energies in a building, captured in it during a particular period in time. Depending on the teaching of different schools the Time Factor can be the period of construction, the period in which the occupants have moved in or a period presently in command. The book explains these different systems and on what they are based. The Facing Direction is the direction from which the strongest energy enters a building and spreads throughout it. As energies enter a building through all its openings from many different directions, it is most important to identify the direction from which the strongest energy enters. The Facing Direction depends on three factors, the direction of maximum energy in the environment, the exposure of the building to the external environment and the internal structure of a building, which enables the energies to spread with ease throughout it. The strong energy of the Facing Directions is represented by the Facing Stars which in combination with the Time Stars create dominating energy combinations, which can be beneficial or harmful to the occupants. The interaction of these energies with each other happens in accordance with the system of the Five Elements, which are the five ways, in which the overall creative cosmic energy is active. The system of the Five Elements allows us to influence the energies in a building to our advantage by weakening the destructive and enhancing the beneficial ones. Different traditional Chinese schools of Feng Shui have different and sometimes conflicting views on the Time Factor, the Facing Direction and the interaction of the Five Elements. The book explains these diverse views for the reader to understand on what they are based and thereby helps to come to a decision, which system to follow to achieve the best results. The book gives valuable information on how to correctly apply Flying Star Feng Shui, which can help to protect us from unfair competition, economic and professional failure, failing health and unwarranted legal and other charges. Flying Star Feng Shui is based on identifying the strongest of all the different energies, which enter a building through its openings from many different directions at different times, because the strongest energies have the strongest influence on the lives of the occupants. Flying Star Feng Shui” therefore deals with the time factor of buildings represented by the so-called time stars, which are the strong basic directional energies in a building, captured in it during a specific period in time. The facing direction is the direction from which the strongest energy enters a building and spreads throughout it. This energy is represented by the facing stars which in combination with the time stars create strong energy combinations, which can be beneficial or harmful to the occupants. The interaction of these energies with each other happens in accordance with the system of the five elements, which are the five ways, in which the overall creative cosmic energy is active. The system of the five elements allows us to influence the energies in a building to our advantage by weakening the destructive and enhancing the beneficial ones. Different traditional Chinese schools of Feng Shui have different and sometimes conflicting views on the time factor, the facing direction and the interaction of the five elements. The book explains these diverse v

The Republic Pictures Checklist from the Author: Len D. Martin. Republic Pictures Corporation, began as a motion picture laboratory in 1915. By 1935, Republic had become a studio and released its first movie, Westward Ho! starring a young John Wayne, who would stay with Republic for the next 17 years. Republic would go on to produce highly successful Westerns starring singing cowboys Gene Autry and Roy Rogers as well as serial adventure series. The studio cranked out so many exciting (not to mention money-making) serials that it became known as "The Thrill Factory." Occasionally, Republic would produce and distribute "A" features, such as Macbeth and The Quiet Man, but it was the "B" Westerns and adventure serials that they knew best how to produce and market. Until its demise in 1959, Republic fed hungry moviegoers with a steady diet of "B" Westerns, serials, dramas, series pictures and musicals. The Republic Pictures Checklist provides a full listing of Republic releases, with plot synopses, release dates, alternate titles, chapter titles and awards. All of Republic's output, including documentaries and training films, is included.

The Royal Air Force Volume 2 from the Author: Ian Philpott. Volume II of this mammoth reference work covers the years in which the League of Nations failed because of the emerging dictatorships in Germany and Italy and the expansionist policies adopted by Japan. Britain was still reeling from the consequences of World War I and the RAF was sadly far behind the other major world powers in aircraft design, still relying on bi-planes that were direct descendants of World War I thinking. It gradually became apparent that, despite UK government dithering, the RAF needed to develop new aircraft, engines and increase production to confront the bully-boy tactics of the Axis powers. As the turn of the decade approached extraordinary measures were taken to enable RAF to defend Britain's skies and this her freedom. As with Volume 1, this book covers every conceivable part of the RAF's history through these pre-War days. It looks at the development and invention of new equipment such as radar, monoplane fighters, metal construction and the heavy bomber. This was an era when science in aviation was rushing ahead and fortunately for Britain's freedom, it laid the foundations of victory in 1.945
