The 36th issue of The Aviation Historian takes a characteristically varied tour of some of the more unusual nooks and crannies of aviation history.  Highlights include: Prof Keith Hayward’s commentary on the political punch-ups at the heart of government during the start-stop-start procurement of the Hawker Siddeley; Dr Andrew Arthy’s minute-by-minute account of the staunch efforts of Luftwaffe fighter unit Jagdgeschwader 2 to hold the defensive line over the beaches of Dieppe on August 19, 1942; The most complete history of Argentina’s IAe.30 Ñancú twin-Merlin-engined fighter published to date; The second part of Vic Flintham’s account of the evolution of Rover David, the World War Two Allies’ system of close air support;  A Cold War photo-reconnaissance pilot’s perspective on the Republic RF-84F Thunderflash in Royal Norwegian Air Force service; The conclusion of the three-part biography of Cambodian pilot Major Su Sampong; The use of Sabena’s helicopters in insect control in the Belgian Congo during the 1960s; An extremely hairy moment involving a British Caledonian BAC One-Eleven at Gatwick in 1981; The seemingly intractable puzzle of Pan Am’s 1946 naming of its Atlantic Division’s Clipper Lockheed Constellations; plus more.
