    I have just acquired a book called "SUNSETTERS OF THE SOUTHWEST PACIFIC AREA". Strange to say this book is not really published yet. At least in the way invisaged. It was supposed to have been published by the IHRA, in their Eagles Over The Pacific series. But after waiting many years and with their numbers dwindling, the 38th Association managed to have a small number printed under licence, having found an arrangement with the IHRA...
    While browsing the 38th site, I made contact with an old veteran, and he kindly arranged for me to have a copy. I was so pleased to get one as it's just great, 700 pages of stories, action pictures, and a few paintings in there as well. Even though profiles are described, they are not within, due to copyright issues I'm sure. But this is only a minor point given the huge book it is, just like the other IHRA books in format... Aviation books don't come much better than this one........:lol:

    A few days ago, I looked at the IHRC site to see if they finally published it.

    Many thanks indeed for the welcome, and may I say I was unaware of this site until very recently.....
