Nice one. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif 2/6 was quite a bit of dosh for a working chappie in 1918...that's 12.5 pence, kids http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Interesting bit in there about his belief that one day aircraft would be made to measure for the pilot - a sort of literal flying suit.

I own a 1917 German text copy. Ullstein & Co., Berlin. Cost me eighty bucks, well worth it.

Illustrated by C.G. Grey too!

If you're looking to upgrade, I'll happily swap you for my 1986 reprint that I bought for $15. It smells nice too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif
