I stand corrected. Thank you for pointing that out.

Just got a copy today. Excellent piece of work, as has been said here many times.

The Fairey saga is of especial interest to me at the moment. Interesting to see how the Ministry correspondence compares with Company- and staff-derived accounts.

Looking forward to the sequels! One on the VTOL saga from P.1127 to F-35B would not go amiss.
No mention of the mythical BLACK BEAUTY so I guess it's just a myth.

Try page 173.

My dear JCC,

can you add only two years,from 1935 to 1944 ?.
Got the book this week and just glancing through it I would say if I had to choose between this one and the Lloyd book I would choose this one, but I would still want to get the Lloyd book if I could afford it. The new to me secret projects shown in the book include drawings of the original prop driven recon bomber, a gunship version for TROPIC MOON, and a TIP-TOW version of two B-47's and a B-36, and TIP-TOW B-47 with two F-86's.  Also included is a photo of the mock-up of the cockpit of the B-47C which had side-by-side seating. No mention of the mythical BLACK BEAUTY so I guess it's just a myth.
