so its July, that means it's time for July's Aircraft recognition News - 60 years ago this month.

<img src=http://mysite.freeserve.com/Angel_one_five/arjul43.jpg>

As I said in Junes instalment AR is a British journal distributed to all of the armed forces and the observer core - for obvious reasons. I intend to share each month's edition with everyone, to give a small insight to what was happening 60 years ago.

As this was printed during the war it is not recommended to use any of the information as solid fact - as it could quite easily be intentionally or unintentionally incorrect.

I like the picture of the Mustang with the 4x20mm cannons.

WOO HOO! YES! The Typhoon is being fitted with a new streamlined bubble canopy! Next you'll be telling us that the FW-190 will get an inline engine, yeah right, that'll be the day. I wonder if the 4x20mm cannons will become standard production on P-51. That is the great thing about being into fighter planes, it is so dynamic and things keep changing.

Great news, thanks for keeping me up to date.

aye your right there - i just wish i could have appreciated it when i was alot younger ( i was given them years ago by an aunt who ran an antiques shop- may she rest in peace) - i would have kept them in better condition - also if my brother had appreciated them too i might possibly still have volume 1 issue 1 (August 1942) - my copies run from september 1942 to about april 1945 (with a few missing) when the move in emphasis to the pacific meant a shift in security classification to present the forces out there with up to date information - the original owner must have been a civilian

I'm thinking the P-51 with 4x20mm would be part of the "intentionally incorrect" material.
