From JCC '...small transports such the Aéroblic...'

Much better looking than BSEL's Flying Pig.

I'd be interested in how the Aeroblic works.

Sorry for the confusion. I read somewhere that the
production Mirage vstolbwas intended to be a two
searer strike aircraft carrying a single nuclear bomb rather
than a fighter like the protypes. I wondered if you had come
across this one.

My dears and my friends,

in early 1990s,I went to a library to buy an encyclopedia,the founder told me there was three book for Jane's
of America,that book was one of them,and as I remembered he showed the three boo covers in a catalog ?,
because he didn't has them by that time,and he offered to export one of them to me,I picked the Jane's
Encyclopedia of Aviation.

Certainly a landmark book and worth a place in any collection, but I would not see a need to reissue it. More recent works have expanded upon his work and, in some cases, shown that parts are incorrect.

Project Cancelled - by Derek Wood

This was the book that spiked the interest in Cancelled Projects and a must for the collection.

Perhaps this is the book you're thinking of?  It's not by Gunston, and I don't know how good it is.

I don't understand the Mirage VTOL were covered in page 222 to 226 of Vol 1.

But in Vol 2 you will get to see various low-speed VTOL (which is small transports such the Aéroblic featured above and attack aircraft like the N500 M) and Dassault will also return with the Mirage IV saga and the Minerve programme.

There was a Jane's Encyclopedia of Aviation but not one of Bombers I'm afraid..

Maybe an other publisher...?

Did Bill Gunston not do a Bombers book a few years ago?
