«Good old times – vom Prop zum Jet»

A photo book by Walter Janach

This book is the result of Walter Janach pursuing an extensive hobby during his vocational training. The photos were taken between 1957 and 1965, at various locations, during different events. Selecting and integrating the photos into a structure with suitable titles often proved difficult. Thus, the DC-8 can be found under the heading “Basel runway” as well as under “Douglas DC-8”. The titles are arranged in chronological sequence for locations and events, and for aircraft types according to the date of their introduction.

The captions include the following information: airline or air force, manufacturer, aircraft type, location with runway and date (if known). Regarding the aircraft type, the names used in Wikipedia were chosen to facilitate further internet research for interested readers.

Language: German. Format 21 x 30 cm, 160 pages, 224 photos, hardcover with thread stitching.

MENSCHEN MASCHINEN MISSIONEN – 100 years air base Dübendorf

Together with the Swiss Air Force the air base Dübendorf celebrated its 100thanniversary in 2014.

The jubilee book tells the story of the air base narrated through the people who shaped it, but also shows the aircraft – airplanes and helicopters – with which missions were performed.
