I would like to see this book reissued in Crecy's Hikoki line, consistent in format with Mason's other books on British flight testing.

I did notice one minor glitch: Tex Johnston's name is missing from the index! :(

Maybe you could stretch matters a bit and include wartime and postwar developments of French pre-war aircraft.  I'm thinking of types like the Swiss D-3803, which was effectively the ultimate update of the M.S.406 series.

It could be a good idea too (Dewoitine D.600, Latécoère 299A, D-3804,...)

But 250 entries seems to be already a big start...

In the U.S., or at least in the Atlanta area, availability of Mortons publications seems to have gone from bad to worse.  I had to order the last one directly from the U.K. and I fear having to do the same for this one.  The rival publications from Key all seem to be readily available here.

I'm told that we have a distribution arrangement with Barnes & Noble. They should be able to stock Mortons bookazine titles should they choose to do so. But if they don't choose to stock them, I don't suppose there's much Mortons can do about it.

Just checked : I have around 250 entries in my FSP "between the wars" list but many are just engine changes from D52x, Amiot 35x, Br 69x, VG 3x etc...

Will have to have a second look before Telford.

I just bought Mr Van der Abeelen book on Hermes. I had this project before his book came out and yes it covers a lot of material and I have to reconsider the opportunity of doing my own book.

I'm very interested in French spaceplanes : Transporteur Aérospatial to Hermès
also if include some french design for un/manned space capsule.

Luc van den Abeelen's book on Hermes is pretty comprehensive on the design evolution of Hermes. Were there other French spaceplane projects?
