Ian Darling Amazing Airmen

Canadian and British airmen engaged in fierce and deadly battles in the skies over Europe during the Second World War. Those who survived often had to overcome incredible obstacles to do so -- dodging bullets and German troops, escaping from burning planes and enduring forced marches if they became prisoners. Amazing Airmen tells some of these stories -- tales that are so amazing they sound like fiction.

In one story, a tail gunner from Montreal survived despite being unconscious when blown out of his bomber. Another story describes how the crew of a navigator from Ottawa used chewing gum to fill holes in their aircraft. And another tells how a pilot from Northern Ontario parachuted out of his plane and became the target of a German machine-gunner, but within hours 120 Germans surrendered to him.

These painstakingly researched stories will enable you to feel what now-aging veterans endured when they were young men in the air war against Nazi Germany.

Rush to Judgment Mark Lane


Mark Lane names names & reveals the "who and the why" behind the JFK assassination.

The assassination of President Kennedy in 1963 continues to be shrouded in mystery and controversy.  Now, for the first time in almost thirty years, explosive new evidence reveals much about the CIA’s involvement in an event that devastated the entire nation and irrevocably altered the course of history.  In Plausible Denial, Mark Lane, the author of Rush to Judgment, the provocative and bestselling critique of the Warren Commission’s official report on the assassination, makes startling revelations about the CIA’s involvement in a plot to murder the president.

Nearly two decades prior to Oliver Stone’s JFK, Executive Action, a fiction film, used actual news footage from the tumultuous events of 1963, never deviating from the historical record regarding the facts surrounding the assassination.

Produced in 1973 as a major motion picture starring Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan,  Executive Action was described as “the most controversial movie of the decade.”  As directed by David Miller, it thrillingly depicts a daring plot to change the course of US policy by eliminating the man responsible.

 The original screenplay, written by Mark Lane, was based upon his work in investigating the assassination.

“Everything we show is supported by evidence” stated Miller, adding that co-stars Lancaster and Ryan were initially skeptical about the conspiracy idea, but were persuaded by the weight of factual material.  As Executive Action tensely builds toward its climax, it poses the real possibility that a complex conspiracy was the cause of those fateful events in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
