In this book, Beaver Shaw sifts through mounds of log book entries and other information that he has gathered from friends over many years.
He has added his flying logbook entries as they appear in his logbook as a reference and guide to his book.
He writes his book as he remembers it, and has used words and phrases that they used during the war days; and therefore he will not apologise for any of the wording and for not being politically correct. This book may offend some and may bring back many memories for others…. Good or bad, these fortunately or unfortunately, were the days of war and this is a book of his days…. fighting a terrorist war!
Choppertech is a book that lets facts speak for themselves, showing ultimately that the truth is no less amazing than fiction and that the scars never heal. Choppertech 1976-80 A Gunner’s Reflection of Fireforce Operations in Rhodesia – Gordon ‘Beaver’ Shaw This book covers the author's and other crewmen's experiences in No 7 Alouette Squadron as helicopter Technicians/Gunners who flew numerous operational sorties in Alouette G and K Car gunships on Fireforce operations during the Rhodesian War 1965 - 1980. The Alouette III helicopters were extensively used within Rhodesia as well as on external operations into Zambia, Botswana and Mocambique. Beaver served during latter stages of the war - 1976-1980, and has the unique distinction as being the only gunner during the war who is credited with a successful Air-to-Air contact when he shot down a Botswana Defence Force Islander aircraft during an external operation, using the K-Car's 20mm cannon. Soft cover. Includes many photos and drawings, approx 47 pages of photos. Beaver is funding the publication of his book so only a small print run is planned for a release date anticipated in the latter half of 2010. Get orders in early to avoid disappointment.
