The most complete story ever told about the seventeen Douglas C-54 Skymaster which served in the Ejército del Aire (Spanish Air Force).

More than two hundred photographs - many of them unpublished or little publicized - and color profiles of the most representative liveries covering the service history of these aircraft, from the day they leave the factory to their final destination, over more than 200 pages. A chapter devoted to each one of the seventeen aircrafts.

An amazing work published in large format with hardcover, destined to becomes an indispensable reference in the bibliography of the Skymaster.

TARGET


The book is already laid out, ready to go into print. And that's where you come in: we need 6.000 € to cover the cost of a minimum print run. Contributing to this project you can get your copy for less than the €45,00 expected retail price.

TIMETABLE


The project will remain open until the end of June. If the goal is reached we will print out the book immediately and we will proceed to send it at early September.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Michel Lozares is a great fan who one day decided to start writing about those machines that he was most passionate about. Meticulous author, good part of his work is the result of throwing himself into the bush -literally- to look for the history there where he rests. The work presented here is the fruit of more than a decade of research.

    Deseando estoy que este proyecto se pueda hacer realidad. Si mantiene el nivel de libros anteriores del autor, como es de esperar, lamentarás perder esta oportunidad. Palabrita...

    En buen hacer, la rigurosidad histórica y el tesón que pone Michel Lozares en sus investigaciones hacen de sus libros auténticas obras de referencia en el mundo de la aviación. Mención especial al apartado fotográfico, un verdadero tesoro. ¡No lo dudéis y encargad vuestro ejemplar!
