X-Planes from the X-1 to the X-60: An Illustrated History (Springer Praxis Books)

Hi folks, I have the pleasure to introduce you my next book, always done with my friend and co-author Michael H. Gorn, dedicated to the NASA X-Planes (and we all know they aren't definitely all planes...) from X-1 to the X-60. It will released by Springer-Praxis next 8th of January 2022.

Thank you Antonio!

As for Spacecraft, the main drive behind our books is we realize something that we would absolutely read.

My dear Hesham,

I can confirm you that our X-Planes book will deal with the real X-44A story rather than the covert "manta" never-were.

Oh. And the airplane photos will be in ... Architectural Digest. Sweet!

Kinda like Koku-Fan with the color airplane foldouts was the "Playboy for Airplanes" - except that Miss February didn't have a staple in her belly button. Great drop tanks though!

Yesterday the Springer-Praxis has officially released the book, I keep my finger crossed.

I want to thank all the people has already pre-ordered our book, I can't stand to have in my hands the final (hardcopy) result.

I pre-ordered my copy a while ago, and I just went onto Amazon and noticed that it is finally in stock after being initially listed as unavailable.

Thank you Vahe, frankly I'm not all happy about Springer-Praxis distribution. Let's only think about that both Michael and me, released our work at the end of May 2021...
