If I have to explain the joke it's never as funny.

That's what Gollum always said about Samwise in The Lord Of the Ring. He was "the fat hobbitses."

I thought your thread title was referring to "My Precious."

Sorry.

Oh yeah, Prince Harry. And he could afford those, too.

No, I've heard that nazi ideas are becoming more popular. Hard to believe, but that's what I hear. Maybe it's the uniforms and those sticks they like to crack on the desks of bumbling prison camp commandants. I thought the world was beginning to learn from the past, but maybe not.

What do people think of the plan to ban the swastika europe-wide? Im interested to hear. Does that mean documetries which show swastikas will be illegal?

Not nazi´s (at least I don´t see them as that)... these were German aviators, as were the Japanese, as were the American as were the British, French... lots of them didn´t defend the doctrine. I´m talking about signed ancient pictures... not ideology. I´m talking about aviators, the man behind the stick, not the guy that was safe in the bunker telling them what to do... if you check around that site you see plenty of relics...
I find fascinating the fighter pilot world in those days. I read german pilots biography with the same interest as I red the biography about Gerald Johnson, or Robert S. Johnson, or about Saburo Sakai or about George Preddy.

I JUST FIND FIGHTER PILOTS STORIES, especially th WW2 ones, FASCINATING. Nothing more... nothing less.

I´m sad that some got this on the wrong end http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

My Grandfather and ALL 6 of his brothers fought the Nazis, but the collector value and rarity of these "Aviation" icons make them interesting if nothing else.

I collect all sorts of aviation "stuff" with emphasis on rare, collectible aviation books and Limited edition Aviation art. Some of them are of German and Japanese subject matter and I like them just as much as some of the others I have.

I don't admire the political stance or the governments they fought for, and neither do I put them on a pedestal extolling their virtues...although there are a few that I could (Hartmann comes to mind...what a story)

Please try not to be soooo politically sensitive. The interest is A-V-I-A-T-I-O-N!!

Thx Thunderbolt and DDT. That my point exactly... I´m even waiting since October 5 to get a very rare copy of Marseille Biography and a collectible copy of Baa Baa Blacksheep from Boyington. I´m not interested in ideology but AVIATION. One little thing Thunderbolt... do u get ur books used or new? I got one 1957 edition of Thunderbolt By Robert S. Johnson... I got it restaured in a printing factory because after the 2nd read was falling apart http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif, and a 1985 (I think) edition hard cover of Samurai... I got the latter because my first order of "Samurai" wasn´t showing, so I order it twice... I gave the 1st copy already to a friend and kept the second one... it´s a gem... I really like this items and getting addicted to them... it´s an investment.

Thx again guys for understanding what this topic is about

You talkin' to me?

Where in my comments does it say German=nazi?
You assumed, so then, who is the rocket scientist here?

I would never own anything German if I felt that way, but yet I prefer the quality of German-made products when I can afford them. I was refering to these pilots, without whom the 3rd Reich could not have survived. Whether or not they supported the doctrine is irrelevant...they were on the nazi payroll and doing nazi killing, and to me that's all that matters.

You may see that I have a hatred for what the nazi regime did, but I do not hold Germans in disregard, unless they individually agree to that philosophy, but that goes for everyone. The communist government in Russia did a lot of evil against its own people, but I do not hate Russians. Castro is a *******, but Cubans are wonderful. Do you see what I'm getting at? I think people are generally good, but there is always that 10% who screws it up for the others.
I do my best to stay out of the 10% group, but I'm not perfect either.

If you want to call someone a *******, that's fine... do so directly, but be careful that you have your facts straight first.

For me it's not so much the ideology thing - I just don't see how people can 'invest' so much value in an old photograph, signed or not.

Flockzap,

I try to get mostly hardback in books (although I have some softback) and it doesn't matter if they're new or old. I just make sure every book I get I read before I shelve it. Most are autographed by relevant signers.

A few of my favorites in my collection are:


Old
1. "Fighting Against the Flying Circus" by Eddie Rickenbacker 1st edition 1919 with a presentation inscription by Eddie himself in 1955.

New
2. "First Blue" The story of Butch Voris- WWII ace and founder of the Blue Angels Signed by Butch and the author.


I also collect aviation art and have most of my collection hanging in my office at work. I have about 12 prints and despite their value, I always end up spending more on the frikkin conservation framing. My favorite is "Advance into Europe" by Nicolas Trudgian and is signed by Hub Zemke, Donald Strait, Paul Conger and Gabby Gabreski.

TB
