Interesting Websites / Jeff Ethell Collection

Found by simply looking into the French aeroforum (,
but I think, it's well worth to be mentioned here, too.
The Jeff Ethell photo collection via Flickr:
I have the book as well and can recommend it.  Yes, the English is not the best, but that doesn't detract from the book.  And it's probably the only book likely to appear on the subject, at least in English.

Incidentally, the same author and publisher have also combined on a similar book on Soviet autogyros.
The prototypes that flew are well covered in various magazines but I was looking more for a wide range
of drawing board stuff that never made it. I think the
records exist in Munich and elsewhere but no German
author with the time and expertise.

Will you "continue the story" with a book on the A-7 Corsair II ?

I've now received my copy.
Based on an extensive lead through my highest praise and recommendation for this wonderful book.
My thanks and regards to the author.
"the West German fighter projects" : Tony Buttler has a book on European X-planes which tangents the subject isn't it ?

Thank you for the kind comments about Vol. 1

I have been re-reading Volume 1 and especially the section on the Mirage III V vstol. I enjoyed the book very much as the drawings and photos were the mix and size I like and the text informative. I shall be ordering Vol 2 from Amatheft this week. Although not appropriate here I would like to see a volume in the same quality about the West German fighter projects from 1950 on.
I just got my copy yesterday. I haven't read it yet, but it looks like a nice book. There are lots of drawings, both three-view and detail. The photos include interesting detail views and some in-flight shots of I-16s practicing hook ups with the bomber. There are color profiles, but they are small and not all that enlightening.The English is a bit rough in places, but not unreadably so.I'm happy.
my author's copy is expected incessantly now...but not yet received.
