An important book for Filipino aviation history, Wings Over The Philippines is a narration of historical events in Filipino aviation from the first flight in the Philippines in 1911 to the more recent antiterrorist air campaigns.
With well researched information and eye witness accounts, Wings Over The Philippines covers military and civilian aircraft, the pilots that flew them, the conquests, defeats and wartime campaigns. As importantly as the action in the air, Tony Dedal, also covers the evolution of the Filipino aviation industry in both military and civil contexts.
Author, Tony Dedal, is a former Philippine Air force fighter pilot, inspired to write Wings Over the Philippines by his devotion to aviation and his participation in its development, both as a weapon of war and as a vital means of transportation in the multi-island Philippines. Contributors to the book include Mike Mendiola, General Rogie Relova, Mario Aldeguer, Rome Farol and many others.
