The first jet picture is a speculative (very speculative) drawing of the Caproni-Campini N.1 from 1940 after it was announced as being the first jet aircraft to fly.

Nice advert. Not entirely sure the big flying wing was a pucker project but a futuristic craft to emphasise Westland's non-stereotypical design work they claim in the advert.

Regards,
Barry

Hi,
and transport aircraft;
http://www.flightglobal.com/PDFArchive/View/1943/1943%20-%200967.html
The freight transport above (twin-boom 1943 for me!) is detailed at
http://www.flightglobal.com/PDFArchive/View/1943/1943%20-%200968.html
with also a loading view
But from your source (front page and last/third page as well), I desperately look for the company of the designers/authors: C.A.H. Pollitt and J.H. Laver. From USA or England (is Flight British?)? Just individual enthusiasts or journalists? Google finds the aviation-focused CAH Pollitt as author of a 1940 book published by Leicester:
http://siris-libraries.si.edu/ipac20/ipac.jsp?uri=full=3100001~!68940!0
and a 1949 article:
www.emeraldinsight.com/10.1108/eb031828
Can someone helps me understanding?
Thanks.

My dear Tophe,

I think they were British ,because most of the projects look like
the well known British companies,for example the first page project
was similar to Airspeed projects.

And here is some transport aircraft.

Thanks for this one also, but is it in the past part of 1942 (possibly 1938 design) or in the future part of 1942 (1942 design)?

Hi,
the Pilot's ideas for light trainer aircraft.
http://www.flightglobal.com/PDFArchive/View/1941/1941%20-%202299.html?search=boeing%207n7%20aircraft
What is the name of the pilot/designer? Page 1 of this article is at
http://www.flightglobal.com/PDFArchive/View/1941/1941%20-%202298.html
and says only "by Ex R.F.C"... someone that was in the Royal Flying Club? anonymous?
