The fourth 'British Secret Projects'
just been published by Ian Allan (£24.99).
By Chris Gibson this
fascinating book covers 'Hypersonics, Ramjets and Missiles' and in its
192 well illustrated pages will be found details and GAs of many lesser
known Kingston projects as well as a host of new historical information.
'Harrier II; Validating V/STOL'
, (£19.99) by Lon Nordeen and
published by the Naval Institute Press, covers the complete history of
the aircraft, not just technically, but also politically, thus
elucidating the tortuous route by which the Marines, and the RAF,
eventually got their advanced Harrier.
Accuracy was enhanced by
assistance to Lon from several Association Members who had been
involved with the project. Both books
are available from Midland Counties Publications on 01455 254450.
