            Skyhawks: The History of the RNZAF Skyhawk (Hardback)

            By Simms, Don; Lee-Frampton, Nick

            This book is in brilliant colour, with hundreds of photographs. It will give the reader an understanding of what it was like to be in the professional, close-knit team that was the RNZAF Air Combat Force. Whether in the flying units at Ohakea and Nowra, or in the support units at... Ohakea and Woodbourne, they were true professionals, totally dedicated to operating old but well maintained aircraft that were a testament to good old kiwi ingenuity and were far from being clapped out as others famously chose to describe them. New Zealanders can be hugely proud of the achievements of their Air Combat Force over many decades. This book records their history. It is dedicated to all those who flew, and supported the Skyhawk in its 31 years of active Royal New Zealand Air Force service.

            Between 2010 and 2016, five destructive earthquakes hit Christchurch, New Zealand. On 22 February 2011, one destroyed the city, killing 185 people. Hundreds suffered lifelong injuries. Although over 95% of properties were fully insured, tens of thousands of insurance claim...s were mismanaged. A decade later, thousands of the 650,000 damaged homes are still to be properly repaired or rebuilt, and many land claims are still to be settled. This is a deeply personal account of one family, one home and one insurance claim, as their home was being systematically destroyed by incompetence and negligence, and they had no idea how to stop it. Follow their story through the shock and horror of it all, and come to understand the human side of recovering from a disaster
