Anyone know anything about or have additional bibliographic data about this book:
Russian X-Planes, Allan Dawes, Key Publishing 2001
It appears to be used as a reference at various times, but nothing found at WorldCat nor Key Publishing...

It was a "bookazine" or standalone magazine - there was one on Stealth at about that time as well. I owned a copy of both, but long gone. Russian X-Planes had a Piotr Butowski article on T-60S I think.

I wonder if it is a typo copied on multiple places and that really this is the reference (also published in 2001):

Paul's right its likely a "bookazine" of some type, also found a reference to a Piotr Butowski article on the T-60S in a 2015? (not sure which month) in an issue of Combat Aircraft magazine
Have the x-plane book above was thinking it was some new book on the subject post 2001

Maybe you're thinking of this. It has an article by Alan Dawes titled "Russian X" and a Piotr Butowski drawing of the T-60S. Came out late 2000 I believe.20200811_145056_C.jpg

I have this version of an already mentioned book. It is quite good.

Actually the one posted by Sean is the one I had. I bought it for the Russian article.

There was a second magazine too, both still sit on my shelf.
Interesting to flick through these today and see how everyone thought aviation would progress from the view in 2000.
Plus only £3.45 for a magazine special, lucky if its under a tenner these days!
