In a career spanning the era of biplanes to the threshold of spaceflight, Captain Brown flew 487 types of aircraft, more than any pilot in history. Eric Melrose Brown, a renowned British Navy test pilot who shattered records and made history with exploits that advanced Allied fighter power in World War II and quests for jet propulsion and supersonic speeds in postwar aviation, died on Sunday in southern England. He was 97. His family said he died at East Surrey Hospital, in Redhill, south of London.

Wings of the Luftwaffe". A compilation of extensive articles by Eric "Winkle" Brown on German aircraft that he "test" flew both during and after World War 2. I regard it as a 'follow up' to Brown's autobiography "Wings on my sleeve" which must be compelling reading for any aviation "buff". A most remarkable pilot. Verified purchase: Yes Condition: Pre-owned. by onrasa21 Mar, 2012. Many aircraft tested in flight, with very nice pictures and colour profiles

During the first chaotic months after the fall of the Third Reich, the RAE sent test pilots throughout the British Zone of Occupation to collect examples of the Luftwaffe's standard aircraft and then ferry them to Farnborough. Captain Eric Brown was a pilot in this ferrying operation.

This is an expanded version of the original book, adding chapters on a number of additional aircraft used by the Germans in WW2.

As the war came to a close, author Brown was charged with securing and flight testing examples of the latest enemy aircraft captured intact. These write-ups probably come from his notes used to produce these intelligence reports. It includes many of the jets that reached the field as well as prop-driven bomber, fighters, trainers and transports.

It is a fascinating book full of technical details about the planes but also with A narrative of. What it is like to fly the craft.

The issue I have with this version is the added chapters are not the same as the original group in terms of detail. I realize this may be a quibble; I apologize for being a bit anal.

But, all the chapters provide unique and insightful information.

As noted on book's biographical note, World War II flyer and Royal Navy Captain Eric Brown is one of the most experienced and decorated flyers of all time, having flown over 487 different types of aircraft. In this book, he discusses flying 33 different World War II Luftwaffe aircraft, including trainers, observation aircraft, fighters, and bombers (each aircraft has its own section).

Captain Brown is fluent in German and in the immediate aftermath of World War II, interviewed many of the leading German aircraft designers. As a test pilot, he was charged with flying captured aircraft from Germany back to the UK, and then evaluating them. His evaluations form the basis of this book. While he often provides too much mundane detail for the non-flyer (such as the process of starting the engines, the control settings for takeoff and flight, etc), his analysis of the flight characteristics and how the German aircraft performed compared to Allied aircraft is priceless.

In addition to his evaluations, he gives some interesting backstory for most of the aircraft, and the publisher included sectional cutaways of the most of the aircraft, cockpit views, and over 200 photographs, some in color. Although he retired from active flying when he turned 70, he's still alive at the time of this review (he's 94), and still occasionally gives interviews and lectures.

Overall, this is an outstanding book that is both easy to read and provides a first-hand view of what it was like to fly German World War II aircraft. Five stars.

Eric Brown's books are classics, and this volume continues this tradition. Following the format of his other "in the cockpit" books, this one covers exclusively Luftwaffe airplanes, with a chapter of varying length dedicated at each model.

As usual, Captain Brown goes straight to the point of "test-flying" the respective aircraft model for the benefit of the reader, some in more detail than others, while making only a passing note to their respective development and operational history. There are very few people who not only have flown these German aircraft but also are able to compare them with the contemporary British and US aircraft they would have usually be pitted against. Accordingly, this book is unique, as it gives a very good insight into the flying behavior of these many very different aircraft types that are long gone, and as such is an invaluable historic record.

As with the other books by Hikoki, this one is very nicely printed in glossy big format paper, with lots of good quality B&W and color pictures, as well as some nice drawings and profiles, and thus makes for an ideal collection volume.

Overall, as with other of Captain Brown's books, this book is pure history told by someone who was in the cockpit, and as such represents an invaluable record of a long-gone era of aviation. Add the very nice production, and you have another true classic in your hands - highly recommended.

Like Brown's other books, this is an amazingly thorough collection of information about historically fascinating aircraft. Unlike the other books I've seen, it's really a high quality book, printed on heavy paper with many, many pictures and superb cutaway drawings of nearly every aircraft. The cockpit diagrams are so good that you feel you could climb into one and fly it after a few minutes of study - undoubtedly better than the original PoH, if there ever was one!

Everything by Eric Brown is first rate. Full of wonderfully insightful descriptions of what it was like to acquire, evaluate and fly some of Germany's most exotic aircraft after WWII. If you have an interest in WWII aviation this is your chance to get a real expert's opinion of what they were like to fly as they were found in their original condition right after hostilities ended.

I liked this book. It has some great illustrations and the first hand accounts of flying these planes is exactly what I expected. The reason why I only gave the book four stars instead of five, is that I would have preferred more data. There is only a brief mention of the standard colors and cockpit layout used by the Luftwaffe. It would have been useful if the accounts of others with time in these aircraft had provided input and the author then had spent time discussing why his opinion is different.

The only real flaws in this book are that it is rather technical regarding test flight characeristics, and it is too short. There is a lot of other information that is less technical and more subjective, which keeps the writing interesting even for those with less avaition knowledge.

The writing was good enough that it left me wanting more on each plane and more planes covered. It would have been interesting to have another volume covering Allied aircraft, following the same format as this volume. I suppose Brown's "Wings On My Sleeve" may satisfy some of that desire.
You'll like this book if you're a WW2 plane geek.

Eric Brown has a long and distinguished career as a test pilot and I am very jealous of him and all the aircraft he got to fly! He writes clearly and gives interesting accounts of his experiences flying the aircraft of the Luftwaffe.

Book is large format. Photos and illustrations are good.
