Mine arrived today, with Air Staff and the Helicopter.  Both in excellent condition and fabulous reads.

Astonishingly quick turnaround Chris - ordered my copy yesterday lunchtime and had it in my hands this morning!

I'm glad you are all enjoying the book.

Sounds like Chris and the Royal Mail are doing a superb job.

Received TAATH and TASATH together yesterday. Both are MUSTS within any respectable library of post-1945 UK air projects! Arrived in excellent condition -- and only nine days after placing the order (which had to cross the pond). James and Chris are both superb and I'd buy any other of their aviation titles! :)

I will be at IMPS Telford tomorrow.
So if any members are around, I'll be lurking near the Project Cancelled SIG tables and there will be an official book launch and signing with The Aviation Bookshop too.

Nice! Telfords seem to be passing with alarming swiftness since I last attended.

Arrived today from Blue Envoy - very quick service.



Thanks James and Chris, it has filled a gap in my knowledge, and goes well with the recent purchase above!
