More stuff on that big Mach 5 methane powered beast.  And the Mach 5 carrier based strike aircraft. In any case II'll be buying a copy :-)

Maybe you could find out about this external covering tested on the F-117 under the Senior Spud program and add it to the book.  reflects light in a strange way. Regards  Empire

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

Any thoughts about including the Senior Prom program?  The competitor to the Northrop B-2.

There's also Lockheed's entry that lost to Northrop's in what became TSSAM.  Being quite familiar with TSSAM, I'd love to see Lockheed's approach to the requirements.

In this book most important part is not contract with Zenith Press, but contacts and ties at LM...

I'm honoured to have the chance to cooperate with Steve in so challenging book (even by graphical point of view).
