Wrecks and Relics

Wrecks and Relics Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review October 2014 Title Wrecks and Relics
Author Ken Ellis Publisher Crecy
Published 2014 ISBN 9780859791779
Format 368 pages, hardbound MSRP (USD) $36.95


Hard to believe that 40 years have passed since the first edition of Wrecks & Relics hit enthusiasts' shelves.

But four decades after Ken Ellis first penned these classic compendia for UK aviation archaeologists, the 24th edition boasts nearly 500% more pages – and 700 individual subjects.  That translates to over 5,000 aircraft listings from nearly 800 locations throughout the British Isles:

  • England
  • Scotland
  • Wales
  • Channel Islands
  • Northern Ireland
  • Ireland

Available in North America from Specialty Press, contents sport utterly mind-numbing minutiae on classic, vintage, preserved and derelict treasures in museums, airports and private possession.  Photos.  Serials.  Histories.  Replicas.  Travel notes.  Even local pubs!

Walking Wales?  Ambling England?  Motoring the moors?  If you're an aviation enthusiast, make this reference your travel buddy.


My sincere thanks to Specialty Press for this review sample!
