I have both the Bowie and Hawk book by Dwight.

Both are excellent in graphics/drawings and content IMO. Easy to follow the narrative with the drawings provided.

Ones that will stay are the Persian I recently picked up and the Chinook 2 of course.

I may keep my military, and I'll always have an Endura around as well.

One companies loss is anothers gain.

Good luck to Mike in the new venture, he'll always land on his feet with his creds and experience and be in demand from the public sector I'm sure.

Way to go Mike, see you in Sept in Colorado for the camp.
