Hi!

A number of projects and actual aircraft have been described.

D.600 fighter
Monoplane for world distance flight record
D.719 transport
D.720 jet fighter
IP-2 glider
D.700 transport
D.700/I.Ae.27 "Pulqui" jet fighter
AISA AVD-12 liason high-wing monoplane


This issue as well as others could be downloaded for free from:

Many thanks for the info, I didn't know this issue was available yet. I'm always after articles on the AVD-12.

Regards Bailey.

Hi!
Silencer1 you have found an interesting sites !

You're welcome 8-)

By the way, "Aeroplano" has been offerd on Spanish Air Force official site, alon with a "Revista Aeronáutica y Astronáutica" magazine. Issues for 2002-2009 are awailable for free here
http://www.ejercitodelaire.mde.es/ea/pag?idDoc=9BED465E30227B48C12576C1003AF238

There were a lot of articles on present Spanish Air Force, it's aircraft and personel. Good illustrations, some historical info. Generous example of self-promotion, I think.

Didn't know we already had that reference on the forum... So many topics!

Anyway, the article is MUST reading for anyone with an interest in Dewoitine.

Here is a series of pictures from the same Aeroplano #25 article (last pic is from #24).

By the way, do you have/know any drawings/pictures of D.730 or D.740 jet-fighter designs (that are mentioned in the Aeroplano No. 25)?
