Helicopter Boys is the latest addition to Grub Street’s Boys series from acclaimed author Richard Pike, exploring the role of helicopters in military and civilian situations. With over fourteen contributors, Helicopter Boys contains stories of the diverse nature of helicopter operations. From the dramatic war scenes during the Indo/Pakistani war which saw one pilot’s actions earn him a VrC gallantry award to the experience of Chinook pilots on board the Atlantic Conveyor during the Falklands War. Then there are the civilian tales from rescue missions in the Outer Hebrides to being a pilot across the world in places such as Australia and Nigeria. There is also a focus on the Piper Alpha disaster in 1988 which saw the loss of 167 lives. The book ends with Pike’s experiences in Kosovo, helping to distribute emergency humanitarian aid on behalf of the United Nations World Food Programme shortly after the war ended in 1999. Each story is told with great detail conveying the action and excitement that helicopter pilots experienced with each operation. The scope, flair and pace of the writing in this book will appeal to the general reader as well as to the enthusiast.

For decades, a passion for vintage motors was regarded as an eccentric hobby, particularly prevalent among the wealthy of an older generation. Today, classic cars have an ever larger, younger fan base. Events such as the Mille Miglia in Italy, the Festival of Speed at Goodwood in England, and Pebble Beach in the U.S. enjoy increasing popularity and booming visitor numbers, year after year. In an opulent coffee table book, Classic Cars Review celebrates the classic car phenomenon by presenting the most beautiful, exciting, and exclusive vintage vehicles, until now only visible in museums or behind the locked doors of private collections. It’s a Concours d’Élégance in book form, showcasing such icons as the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, Aston Martin DB5, and Rolls-Royce Phantom III, as well as a multitude of extraordinary cars with remarkable histories—whether owned by well-known personalities or ushered in extraordinary successes on the racetrack. Many of these cars were produced in minimal runs or are one of few surviving models. In addition to the vehicles themselves, this must-have classic car book also shows the institutions and key players behind the exclusive vintage car scene. With large, never-before-seen collections and their collectors, Classic Cars Review provides exclusive insights into the world of the largest classic car auction houses, the most innovative classic car dealers, and all the key vintage car events.

Presenting 17 international customizers and their interpretations of the BMW R nineT, Soul Fuel reveals a new approach to customizing. A custom bike is, above all: unique. The sub-culture of the custom bike community and its trends are of major importance, not only for the motorcycle’s hardware, but also for the software associated with the lifestyle. Customizers deliberately reject a digitized and perfected world with something handmade and raw—a kick start for the imagination of all free spirits. With the market launch of the BMW R nineT in 2013, the unique Soul Fuel project started in earnest. Over the course of the nascent cooperation, the first selected customizers received an R nineT, which they were able to remodel and modify pursuant to their own vision. To date, 17 customizers have created fascinating customizations of the R nineT through Soul Fuel. Five additional projects are to follow in 2018. Introducing the bikes completed to date, the book Soul Fuel is an homage to the “customizing attitude” towards life. When we take a look into the workshops of the most innovative customizers, we can virtually smell and hear the welding equipment. We experience the creative process that emerges from custom bikes made on the basis of the R nineT, up close and personal—like when musicians cover their favorite song, and in doing so, place their own distinctive stamp upon it. With full passion and dedication, Blitz Motorcycles, 46 Works, El Solitario, and others create exceptional interpretations of an exceptional machine.

The introduction of the Porsche 901 in 1963 marked a milestone in automotive history. Although the name later had to be changed because Peugeot had patented having a 0 in the middle of car model numbers, the 911 didn’t let anything stand in the way of its becoming an iconic sports car. This success story spans all the way from the 901 and the Carrera RS 2.7 (which with its characteristic rear spoiler—the so-called “ducktail”— was the fastest production car of its time) right up to the current generation of the 991. The famous automotive photographer René Staud showcases the most important models—all in his typically radiant and distinctive style.
