It's been around for quite a while, I got my copy at Telford.

How did you get that Kit, over on the SPF, Chris Gibson says he hasn't finished it (that was as a couple of weeks ago)

I hope so, don't want to miss the boat....
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.

Erm, what's the one I've got then, with the three Cierva Air Horses on the cover?  :-\
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! :)

Air Staff and the Helicopter. :thumbsup:  Phew, I'm glad I hadn't missed it, I was gutted that I didn't get a copy of the HS P.1121 volume, the only one I haven't got in my collection.

OK, I see the problem, there's two books, the one with the three Air Horses on the front is The Air Staff and the Helicopter, the new one is as this thread title.

Me, confused?  :-\

You bet, I must have missed the announcement that he was doing a third one in the series.
