Our author Pat Martin from Canada wrote a fantastic book about the CL-30 Silver Star, the Canadair license built version of the T-33A Shooting Star, in Canadian and international (Bolivia, Turkey, France, Portugal and Greece) services. Lots of great images, especially from the early years of CL-30 service and a plethora of background information make this book a must have for the enthusiast interested in the Canadian Air Force.
