    >My friend recently came across this list and thought I might be interested.
    >I have browsed through some of the archives and am fascinated by the
    >threads, although some of the postings are a bit beyond me! My interest is
    >in traditional Air Navigation and one post from March 2005 grabbed my
    >attention. Zvi Doron asked if there were any texts by navigators from the
    >30 and 40's in relation to celestial navigation on the Pan American
    >Clippers.
    >In additon to the texts mentioned in the thread there is some good
    >information in Captain Brock's Book 'Flying the Oceans'. Also Fred Noonan
    >the first Chief navigator for PAA(1935/36) wrote a letter to Weems which is
    >reproduced in the 1938 edition of Weem's Air Navigation. In it he decribes
    >the method he used. He preferred to use Dreisonstok's Tables rather than
    >Ageton or the Line of Position Book. He has also written on the feasibility
    >of radio bearings comparing that with the accuracy of celestial in a paper
    >I have if that is of interest to anyone.
    >
    >Many thanks for such a great List and looking forward to reading the
    >postings and hopefully contributing!
