Included in this issue are articles about: the second half of an interview with the late Lt-Col Fern Villeneuve AFC RCAF, founder leader of Canada’s Golden Hawks aerobatic display team; a major feature on Short Bros’ troubled political history in Britain’s post-war aviation industry; the fatal crash of the one-off Cierva Air Horse giant helicopter 70 years ago; the story of Sweden’s obscure and undistinguished inter-war parasol-winged fighters the FVM J 23 and J 24;  Channel-flight pioneer Louis Blériot’s much less well known plans for VTOL aircraft and “aerial runways”; a World War Two “anti-g suit” which, essentially, was like wearing a chest-high pair of fisherman’s waders which were filled with two gallons of water; Maurice Wickstead on Italy’s Forgotten Airlines; the crucial but little-known World War Two aerial engagement over Sidi Bou Zid in Tunisia; Heinkel’s post-war mixed-power He 31 fighter project; a 1950s Hawker concept.
