Swivel Light

This horizontal-shaped swivel light features 30 bright-white LED lights, and unlike incandescent bulbs, is cool to the touch. Rated at 90 lumens, the 30 LEDs provide up to 100,000 hours or 11.4 years of continuous service. The head pivots -5 to 90 degrees and rotates 300 degrees, great for the confined spaces of a cockpit. The light requires three AA cell batteries (included) to operate. Available at Pep Boys.

World War II Memories

Contact! Britain! by Nancy Miller
Livingston Stratford is an engaging look at what it was like to be a female ferry pilot in Britain during the height of World War II. Nancy Miller was a 450-hour pilot and turning 23 years old when she was recruited by Jackie Cochran to fly for the Air Transport Auxiliary. For three years, she flew 50 different types of fighters and bombers without radios or a copilot. Her warm writing style brings the joy of flight to life.
