You all have seen me tout this place before:

http://www.aeroplanebooks.com/

Aeroplane Books is changing owners. The current owners are retiring and the bookstore has been sold. It will move from Williamsburg, Virginia to Newport News, Virginia (about 20 miles closer to my house http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif). Hoepfully the new owners will keep the flavor, selection, prices and fantastic service that Aeroplane Books is known for.

Now, in the meantime, Aeroplane Books have some new titles worth a look:

http://www.aeroplanebooks.com/jae.jpg
JAPANESE AIRCRAFT EQUIPMENT,
Mikesh, Robert, Schiffer, 2004, new, companion book to the previously published Japanese Aircraft Interiors, this book defines more closely the equipment that outfitted these aircraft, there are chapters on such aircraft installed equipment as instruments, radios, cameras, machine guns & cannons, gunsights and bombsights used by the Japanese Army & Navy air forces, the opening chapter describes the history as to how much of this equipment was captured, many photos & ilustrations, 190 pgs. $69.95
(Chimp's note: This is a really nice book, from the same author of Japanese Aircraft Interiors. Lots of good period photos, diagrams and color photos of surviving planes.)
