A Tale of Two Books

Made it to my two favorite book stores today.  Half Price Books in Redmond and Powell’s in Portland.  Found two great books:  Principles of Avionics (which I bought) and R-4360 (which I didn’t, but now wish I had).  Both are outstanding books.  The first has the most useful information on modern avionics I’ve ever seen.  It actually shows you in detail (including diagrams and math) of how, for example, a VOR receiver works.  The second has a huge amount of information (including many photos I’ve never seen before) of various aircraft powered by the Wasp Major engine (including some previously unknown to me photos of the XB-35 and N-9M – two of my favorite airplanes).  It’s on my Christmas list…
