Initially developed by Savoia-Marchetti as a transport, the aircraft had evolved into a dedicated medium bomber by the time the S.79-I made its combat debut in the Spanish Civil War in 1936. During World War 2, it became Italy's most successful bomber, and the most produced, with around 1370 built between 1936 and early 1944. Although initially hampered by poor tactics, the S.79 bomber crews nonetheless scored sunk a number of Allied vessels, and provided a constant threat to Allied sailors in the Mediterranean in the early stages of the war. In East Africa and the Red Sea the Sparvieri were the most modern bombers in-theatre, proving a challenge to RAF and SAAF biplane fighters. Using specially commissioned full-colour artwork, first-hand accounts and historic photographs, this volume chronicles the history of the S.79's war in the Mediterranean, North African, Balkan, and East African theatres.
Twenty-four aircrew who flew the iconic aircraft with the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Air Force, and the South African Air Force (SAAF) relate their experiences and affection for the Blackburn Buccaneer. Arranged in chronological order, the book traces the history of the aircraft and the tasks it fulfilled. In addition to describing events and activities, it provides an insight into the lifestyle of a Buccaneer squadron and the fun and enjoyment of being a "Buccaneer Boy" in addition to being part of a highly professional and dedicated force. The introduction into service is fully described before further chapters cover the development of the air force's maritime tactics and the deployment of two squadrons to Germany in the overland strike role. Two chapters deal with the aircraft's stunning successes at the Red Flag and Maple Flag exercises flown in North America, which took the USAF hierarchy by storm. A further chapter is devoted to the intensive but little known Bush War operations by 24 SAAF Squadron on the borders of Angola. Two USAF exchange officers who flew Buccaneers relate their experiences and the aircraft's deployment for the Lebanon crisis, and the reinforcement exercise to the Falkland Islands is examined. The introduction of new air-to-surface anti-ship missiles is covered before the Buccaneer left to go to war in the Gulf where it distinguished itself providing precision laser marking for the Tornado force, in addition to carrying out its own precision bombing attacks. This lavish book concludes with accounts of the aircraft's final days in RAF service and some reflections on its impact on maritime and overland air power. 1. Language: English.

Growing up in suburban Pretoria, Steve Joubert dreamed of a career as a pilot. After undergoing SAAF pilot training, a freak injury put an end to his hopes of flying fighter jets. Instead he learned to fly the versatile Alouette helicopter. He had barely qualified as a chopper pilot when he was sent to the Border, where he flew missions over Namibia and southern Angola to supply air cover to troops on the ground. As a gunship pilot, Steve saw some of the worst scenes of war, often arriving first on the scene after a contact or landmine attack. He also recalls the lighter moments of military life, as well as the thrill of flying. A born maverick, his lack of respect for authority often got him into trouble with his superiors. His experiences affected him deeply, and led him eventually to question his role in the war effort. As the Border War escalated, his disillusionment grew. This gripping memoir is a powerful plea for healing and understanding.
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of different chemical, botanical and biological treatments against the brown spot disease (Bipolaris oryzae)of rice in Chitwan, Nepal. Treatments were evaluated by poisoned food technique in-vitro, seed treatment in laboratory and foliar spray in the field. Saaf and Hinosan were the most effective followed by Cattle urine and Nico-neem in inhibition of mycelial growth. However seed treatment with Hinosan reduced 90% seed borne inoculum followed by Saaf. Botanicals also significantly controlled seed borne inoculum by more than 50%. In field trial, AUDPC was significantly reduced by Hinosan followed by Saaf and Nico-neem. All the yield and yield attributing characters were negatively correlated but highly significant with AUDPC. The reduction in seed borne infection by the residual effect of foliar spray was significant. The results revealed that seed treatment and foliar spray with Hinosan or Saaf may be the option for management of brown spot. Neem oil based products Nico-neem and locally available botanicals like Simali are promising for eco-friendly management of brown spot disease of rice.

The Atlas Cheetah was a fighter aircraft operated by the South African Air Force (SAAF) between 1986 and 2008. It was first built as a major upgrade of the Dassault Mirage III by the Atlas Aircraft Corporation (later Denel) of South Africa in South Africa. Three different variants were created, the dual-seat Cheetah D, and the single-seat Cheetah E and Cheetah C. The Cheetah E was retired in 1992, and the SAAF had a mixture of 28 Cheetah Cs and Cheetah Ds in operational service until April 2008, when they were retired as the SAAF accepted into service the first of 26 Saab JAS 39 Gripens (17C/9D) which replaced them.

The South African Air Force (SAAF), formed on 1 February 1920, is the second oldest air force in the Commonwealth. The air arm played a major role in securing victory for the Allies during the Second World War, in the 1948/49 Berlin Airlift, and in Korea in the 1950s. The SAAF assisted Rhodesia in the 1960s and '70s, made a major contribution to the 'Border' or 'Bush' war in South West Africa and Angola, participated in the transition to a new democracy in South Africa and continuously supports South African peace missions in Africa. It has also assisted in countless relief and rescue missions in southern Africa throughout this entire period.However, the SAAF is not just about aircraft and ordnance; it is made up of people and it is in this compilation that these people, airmen and ground crew alike, find their voice. These are their stories, all told in the first person by the actual participants as unvarnished, unabbreviated and intensely immediate and personal recollections. Through their stories of heroism, duty, adventure and tragedy, the reader will follow the history of the SAAF from 1939 to the present day. To complement the stories, the final chapter includes a collection of squadron pub songs from the Second World War, Korea and the Border War.An accountant by profession, Dean Wingrin has had an interest in aviation since childhood, collecting articles and taking photos at airports and air shows whenever he could.

Die Atlantika ist auf ihrer Mission in Wokquar auf das Heimatsystem der Wächter des Kontinuums gestossen. Es handelt sich um ein System, welches mit dem der Sonne Zorgoss identisch scheint. Verschiedene Indizien deuten an, dass Zorgoss-Alpha jünger ist, als jener Stern, der im Sternenfeld der Opfersonnen durch eine Supernova vernichtet wurde. Die Vorgänge im System des Sternenzwillings sind desaströs. Die Hauptwelt Saaf wurde durch einen Dimensionsbruch in das tachyonische Kontinuum gesaugt, einzig noch erhalten, durch das mental gestützte Schutzfeld seiner Bewohner. Die Lage spitzt sich dramatisch zu, als das Hybrid-Team auf Zorgoss-Alpha-VIII landet und den Tempel der Erleuchtung entdeckt. Nicht weniger dramatisch, entwickelt sich die Situation im Sonnensystem. Der zornige Wächter, von den Testpiloten der neuen Sceema-Jäger in letzter Sekunde vertrieben, hat sich in der Sonnenkorona eingenistet und beginnt sein unheilvolles Wirken. Unerreichbar für die Schiffe der Solaren Union und ihrer Verbündeten, droht der Wächter mit der Vernichtung eines ganzen Planeten. Um eine Katastrophe und den Tod unzähliger Menschen zu verhindern, versuchen die Techno-Kleriker in letzter Minute zu vermitteln. Sie starten zur Mission der Kleriker ...
To assimilate a writer as allusive as Lacan is to enter into an entire culture. However firm their grounding in Freud, readers of Lacan must learn to rethink psychoanalysis with a speculative breadth sometimes exceeding that of Freud himself. This book, designed to clarify the works of a controversial and influential figure, is the first collection of critical essays to appear in English since Lacan's own writings began to be widely distributed in translation. Drawing on psychology, philosophy, literary criticism, and clinical and theoretical psychiatry, this volume explores the full range of Lacan's thought. An introduction by Kerrigan is followed by three papers by Stanley Laeavy, John Muller, and Julia Kristeva centered on the application of Lacan to the work of therapy. The second section clarifies Lacan's Hegelian and Heideggerian roots, with contributions by William Richardson, Edward Casey and J. Melvin Woody, Wilfried Ver Eecke, Andre Green, and Antoine Vergote. The final article is a Lacanian interpretation of Bleak Houseby Christine van Boheemen-Saaf indicating the potential of this approach for applied psychoanalysis.
