Born in 1943, Larry Milberry has been following aviation since he was a boy. His publishing days began with writing magazine articles, and his first book, the original Aviation in Canada, appeared in 1979. Since then he has accumulated more than 30 titles, all but one from CANAV Books, his one-man publishing operation.
