Read this week’s Flight – of 1917, 1927, 1937…

Under the cover of a pseudonym, to protect my friends and family from repercussions and recriminations – okay, embarrassment – I participate in a forum for those like me who love cancelled and secret aircraft projects. It’s www.secretprojects.co.uk, and it is a very cool site. They have just discovered Flight’s online archive, which went live earlier today. The reaction? To quote one: “Wow! This is an incredible resource.” And it is. Searchable and downloadable pdfs of hundreds of past issues of Flight. There are gaps, which are to be filled in over the coming weeks, but what is there is amazing.

    As the owner of the Secretprojects.co.uk website, I’m glad you like it and I’m even gladder that Flight have made their archives available in this way. I’m writing a long article/short book on the Hawker P.1103/P.1121 project, and I’ve already found a bunch of interesting material on the Gyron, Olympus and Conway engines that I might otherwise have missed. Roll on 1954 and the J.W. Fozard article on Supersonic Fighters…
