UPDATE 2 - 21/01/04

Two months have passed since the first update to “Jet Warbirds of the World” and continuing research has uncovered a good few new identities previously unknown to my good self. In addition to these, there has been the usual crop of new aircraft and others that have changed hands. Copies of the book are still available from the address above.

Thanks to an old copy of USCAR lent by Bernard King , the following additional aircraft have come to light.

UPDATE 1 - 24/11/03

Though a long time in the gestation, the above publication has finally hit the shelves. If you haven't already purchased your copy, then it is available from The Aviation Hobby Shop, 4 Horton Parade, Horton Road, West Drayton, Middlesex, UB7 8EA (telephone 01895-442123) for a mere £5.95. Originally intended as an article for "Hawkeye", this project soon outgrew itself, until a separate publication became inevitable. The Jet Warbird scene is forever changing & as soon as the book was published, it became out of date. As a consequence of this, I am intending to provide regular updates for "Hawkeye" readers. While the publication was last updated at the end of September, just prior to going to the printer, the following changes had already occurred by 23rd November. Also listed are corrections to the inevitable typos that seem to creep into any publication the moment that you print it.
