Hi folks,

Another book(s) out soon will be the four-volume work "Australian-Built Aircraft,and the Industry" by Keith Meggs (former RAAF Fighter pilot). More info here. It is described as an encyclopedic, four-volume work on every aircraft type proposed, designed or manufactured in Australia from 1884 to the mid-1980s! Though there have been some delays with getting it published, I am reliably informed that it should be available soon thanks to the Australian Government providing funding for it publishing.

Regards,

Greg

I was thinking to order a copy because I want to learn more about Meteor's early development and operational deployment. Is this the right book for me?

Yes, it quite worth the money! Also I can recommend Tim Kershaw's 'Jet Pioneers: Gloster And The Birth Of The Jet Age' from Jet Age Museum/Setton Publishing
