Just started reading my copy, today.....
As I've said before, aircraft are never ugly, rather, they are purposeful, or the result of form following function.
Got to say, there are a hell of a lot of functional aircraft in this book......


cheers,
         Robin.


P.S. It's okay, Chris, I'm reading it in my lunch hour!.......... ;)

I'll be at the National Archives at Kew tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday if anyone fancies a pint/brew/blah.

PM me if you'll be around.

Hi Chris:


Just heard from Amazon that the delivery date for the new The Air Staff and AEW has been pushed back to the indefinite future. I've been really looking forward to seeing this as a companion to The Admiralty and AEW. 


Do you have an updated release date? 


Thank you.

I would suspect that Chris will be focusing on his 'Battle Flight'- British Air Defence post war projects book that he is writing for Crecy, as thats due for publication at the end of October. With this book being under contract it will no doubt have priority over his own self published titles, but once that book has been signed off and sent for printing then Chris can get on with finishing off his other works. Just be patient it will get published and we have the advantage that Battle Flight will no doubt cover some of the AEW aspect and put it into context  :)

Hi Chris
With the inclusion of RAF AEW in your forthcoming Battle Flight book, will this mean you deferring this "Air Staff & AEW" book for the time being ?

Hi Chris:


I'm really enjoying Battle Flight.  Again a meticulously researched and well written book full of new information.     


Now that it is out, do you have an updated expected date for the completion of The Air Staff and AEW?  My copy of The Admiralty and AEW is getting lonely!


Thank you very much.

In the April 2013 issue of the French aviation magazine 'Le fana de l'aviation' there is an article about British and French AEW projects written by Alexis Rocher. Data, pictures and drawings (e.g. the Hawker P139) are contributed by Chris Gibson.
The French AEW project SA-X-137 is mentioned.

Note that the Aviation Bookshop have some copies of this at Telford today. If you don't have it, take a look and buy a copy!

Don't you boys ever rummage about on Amazon? Most disappointed by your sleuthing skills, so expect a visit from Archdeacon Robert...

Hope the attached BAC A2 will keep you interested.

Seriously, Adrian is finalising the layout as I type and then Ed the Geordie printer will be doing his trick with ink and paper, hopefully before the forthcoming mini ice-age shuts the UK down. Happy to report no photos of Maggie but other scary things, such as aircraft that will give you nightmares.

That's so cool!
One things for sure, if it had of been built and operated, it would have been entitled to the nick name of SLUFF!!
