I'm waiting for the Italian Secret Projects 1934 - 1943 to come out. According to Amazon it's June 30th but I don't trust the .......so will order from my local bookshop once I have confirmation from the publishers.

This one?

Looks like 30th of july for Italian, and 28th May for American 4 and French 3 from Crecy. American 4 is a revamp of one of Tony Butlers earlier ones. Might get it just for the cover art.
They also have Teach For The Sky:Britsh trainng aircraft since 1945 by James Jackson due 30th June which has some rather nice swing wing Red Arrows on the cover.

Thanks for the info.  I Like the sound of Teach for the Sky even though it's a candidate for cheesiest book title of the year!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

What about this one?

That's a revamp of the old Midland published book but I've no idea if there is much new info in it. Still haven't bought the redone British projects books coz I have all the early ones and I've no clue how much (if any) new info is is in them.

Crecy now says June 30th for American 4. The Italian one seems to have disappeared from the Crecy site now.

I was only looking for the Italian one the other day. Last date I have for it is 1st July, but I'm going to email them about it.

German amazon currently lists its release date as of July 15th; pre-orders have been opened, though.

Reading up a bit - Iím in the same place. Anyone knows if there really is any substantial new stuff in the later editions?
