            Flying from an aircraft carrier is one of the most difficult things to do in all of aviation. This is the story of a group of young Australians who joined the Royal Australian Navy to take up that challenge in the mid-1960s. Their story is unique because, unlike those who went be...fore them and those who followed, they were sent to the USA to undertake their flying training with the United States Navy. So began an unusual chapter in the story of the Royal Australian Navy. 'The Pensacola experiment', as it was called, was an outstanding success. This book follows the young men's initial and sometimes almost accidental encounters with the Navy recruiting office to their arrival as fully fledged naval aviators at the Naval Air Station Nowra, NSW, ready to join their first squadrons. A mix of narrative and often hilarious personal anecdotes takes you along for the ride with the group as they land at the US Naval Air Station Pensacola, meet their host families, and learn to adapt to American culture in a huge training system that turned out thousands of naval aviators each year, many of them destined for the war in Vietnam at the time. Readers will share in the growing sense of excitement and satisfaction as these young aviators work towards their initial carrier qualifications and ultimately gain their coveted 'Wings of Gold'.

            Point Cook has helped to shape modern Australia. Near Melbourne on the shore of Port Phillip, it has been the location for a significant number of the country's aviation 'firsts'. From the birth of Australia's military aviation, through the encouragement of fledgling civil air se...rvices, to the training of many of the country's top military and commercial pilots, Point Cook has played a role second to none. Cultural historian Steve Campbell-Wright skilfully weaves a tale spanning a century that gives a glimpse into the often-secretive world behind the gates of the Birthplace of Military Aviation. The tale abounds with the personal stories of those who were there, providing a fascinating mix of triumph and tragedy in a world experienced by very few in the nation's past.

            Reasons come first, answers second. It seems that life has a mysterious quirk of camouflaging the answers in such a way that they become apparent only to those who are inspired enough to look for them - who have reasons to look for them. - Jim Rohn. Daily Reflections and the thou...ght-provoking and articulate philosophy is simply presented and a brilliant addition to anyone's life.

            Geoffrey Blainey: Writer, Historian, Controversialist
             

            Geoffrey Blainey: Writer, Historian, Controversialist (EPUB ebook)

            By Allsop, Richard

            Geoffrey Blainey is often described as Australia's greatest living historian, a writer whose prolific output includes such iconic books about the country's past as The Tyranny of Distance and Triumph of the Nomads. However, Blainey has also been a controversial figure. His 198...4 comments about Asian immigration triggered a major political controversy. In turn, the reaction of his critics raised fundamental questions about freedom of speech and set the scene for the 'history wars' fought out in Australia over the past three decades. Many academic historians were amongst Blainey's critics. After 1984, Blainey became stereotyped as a 'conservative historian' and thus outside the bounds of academic history, yet much of Blainey's historical writing, both in method and outlook, has been far from conservative. Geoffrey Blainey: Writer, Historian, Controversialist challenges simplistic descriptions of Blainey's work. It sheds an important light not just on Blainey's career, but also on the past and present practice of history in Australia.
