“De snelste mens ter wereld.”



Dit boek vertelt de geschiedenis van het absolute wereldsnelheidsrecord en van de eenentwintig piloten die met hun vliegtuigen tot het uiterste gingen om dit te bereiken.Het is een geschiedenis van vindingrijkheid, moed, doorzettingsvermogen en nationale trots!


Het eerste naoorlogse snelheidsrecord, een gemiddelde snelheid van 975 km/u, werd gevestigd op 7 november 1945, het laatste op 28 juli 1976. Op die dag vloog Kapitein Eldon Joersz aan boord van een spionagetoestel ruim 3500 km/u. De SR-71 Blackbird vloog toen een kilometer per seconde of vijfentachtig keer sneller dan de eerste recordhouder, luchtvaartpionier Alberto Santos Dumont, in 1906.

In the magical setting of the Royal Museum of the Army, the exhibition shows how many authors have drawn inspiration from history and military techniques.  In visiting the exhibition, the public will go through all the collections of the Museum.  Visitors will discover original and amusing showcases of items of the collections and how they are reflected in the comic strips.  The two dimensions of the comic strip are thus juxtaposed to the real world.
