I’ll start this post by apologising for the slightly slower pace in updates to this site over the past couple of months.
Since the airshow season has died down I seem to have been a little short on time to catch up on show reports and putting together longer articles.
However, over the next few weeks, as the New Year draws closer, I’m hoping to get things back to normality. There are plenty of ideas in the pipeline as well as continuing some of the existing series on here.
The Sopwith series will continue with an in depth look at the Snipe, Sopwith’s last fighter of the First World War. The rest of this series can be found here.
With the Sopwith series slowly coming to a close I will also be starting a look at the Curtiss family of aircraft, starting with the classic 1930s racing biplanes.
I’ll be continuing the Aero Engines series, with a number of posts looking at the development of aircraft power throughout the 20s, 30s and 40s. The latter posts will include a look at early jet and rocket power. (Parts 1 & 2 can be found here and here.
I’ll also take a short look at the Grumman Skyrocket, a futuristic 30s twin that never quite got off the ground, though it clearly laid the foundations for the Tigercat.
Next week also sees the special roll out event for the Mosquito prototype at the de Havilland Heritage Museum, so look out for plenty of photographs from what should be a special day.
I’m looking forward to getting things moving again and brining plenty of interesting stories and profiles to this website as well as looking back over the 2015 airshow season and looking forward to 2016. Thanks to everyone who keeps reading!
