Skybolt: At Arms Length
« on: June 26, 2019, 07:47:28 am »
Skybolt: At Arms Length by Nicholas Hill.  Covers the development of Skybolt for the RAF and homegrown attempts to produce an alternative running up to it and immediatley after the cancellation.  Sounds like an interesting companion to BSP Hypersonics and Missiles.

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.

I pre-ordered that one too.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
