Description

This issue includes: a detailed eight-page article by Chris Gibson about a secret plan for a raid on airfields in mainland Argentina, the aircraft returning via Chile or even the long way round, via islands in the Pacific; a new series in which ace technical artist Ian Bott gets “under the bonnet” of some of the many and varied aerial weapons developed by the British starting with the nuts and bolts of the RP-3 rocket projectile; the USA’s use of drone aircraft (including unmanned B-17 Flying Fortresses!) during post-WW2 atomic weapons testing; the political background to the de Havilland Comet airliner; and how French test pilots came to the UK to fly the Short SC.1 in order to gain experience for their own country’s jump-jet programme. All this, and much more, is illustrated with high-quality archive photographs and bespoke artwork
