Included in this issue are articles about: Using contemporary official sources, Professor Keith Hayward examines the political and industrial aspects of the Brabazon Committee’s work; Jean-Christophe Carbonel describing the 1920s experiments of Jean de Chappedelaine in using centrifugal force as a means of lift and propulsion; and trailing in its (optimistic) wake is Thomas Withington’s exploration of the possibility of Dassault’s Mirage IV as a TSR.2 replacement for the RAF in the mid-1960s; Albert Grandolini opens his multi-part biography of Cambodian MiG-17 and Skyraider pilot Major Su Sampong, who was posted to France to hone his fighter skills before returning to serve with the Aviation Royal Khmère, an air arm largely built on French military aviation principles; Amaru Tincopa charts the career of the Nieuport-Delage NiD 122C1 parasol monoplane fighter in Peruvian service. Electronic-warfare specialist Bill Cahill charts the USAAF 25th Bomb Group’s use of the de Havilland Mosquito in laying screens of “chaff” to blind German radar ahead of the Eighth Air Force’s bomber streams; Vladimir Kotelnikov explains how the USSR brought aviation to Afghanistan 60 years before its ultimately futile war there in the 1980s; Maurice Wickstead concludes his three-part series on Italy’s forgotten airlines.
