      Welll, send me your snail mail address and I'll send you some data in Microsoft Excel to start on CD. I'd meial it but tehre is too much data.I'm pretty interested in ALL WWII aviation, as long as the data doesn't come from DonL or Drgondog.I have a very complete databse oif WWII aircraft with a LOT of information in it, collected over more than 17 years. But I alos don;t want it published unless I get cut in on it somehow since I did the collecting. For personal use, I'll hand it out to interested parties as long as you agree not to pass it on to anyone.The aircraft databse with just piston planes in ot is about 100 Mb all by itself. Let me know what you think.Best regards, - Greg
      I haven't been into My Profile for a while. Sorry. I'm not quite sure what info I have that would be of value to you but you are welcome to whatever I have. COPYRIGHTS!? PUBLISHING!? For the love of Pete. I work as an engineer at a hospital. I have no intention of anything underhanded (mostly because my wife won't let me). No, just kidding. I simply have three long drawers filled with information I have copied off the internet, published material and anything else I could find. I do not have any ties to allow me to get a hold of any military or manufacture information directly. I mostly read books and study graphs and charts.
      I guess the best way to start would be to take it slow and ask what particular WW2 fighter would you like information on. I'll try to figure out how to get the info to you. Then you can tell me if it works or not.
      I haven't even been on my email for about a year. It is [email protected]

      Thanks man, Jeff

      Hi Jeff,

      I'm off on a trip for a week tomorrow, but would be interested when I get back. Unfortunately my mom doesn't use computers and I'll be off the internet for a least a week. I'm good for the money ... but will have to get back home and get back with you on it.

      I thank you and will get back to you.

      Best regards - Greg

      Hi Greg,

      I have tracked down a copy of The Whole Nine Yards; if you're interested I can bid $40 ($33 US) or buy it for $42 ($34 US) NZ + P&P + P&P to 'States, via the local internet auction site The Whole Nine Yards: The Story of An ANZAC P-40 | Trade Me If you're not interested in this particular copy chances are another will turn up...

      Cheers, Regards Jeff W.
      I would very much like to swap or send you whatever I can. Like I said I only compiled fighter information and probably most of it came off wwiiaircraftperformance. I made up a performance sheet with 1,000 meter and 5,000 ft. increments. It includes turn times, ranges, maximum roll rate, armament, test weight of the aircraft, date of test, engine used, engine max. power, wing load, power load, service (100 fpm), operational (500 fpm) and combat (1,000 fpm) ceilings. Its crude, but gives me a quick reference.

      Hi Greg, yes Gsxr 1100 nut here, one of the very last watercooled version we got in the UK, a 96 model sold in 97.
      Crazy enough for me although I must admit I like playing with it as much as riding it at this time of year.
      I try to keep it looking like a new one.

      Here's a pic

      Loved the pulse jet vids, keep that sort of thing coming please.

      Hi Nick,

      I was a bit out of touch during the last couple of months but am back now. I moved and had some issues ...

      Anyway, I'll send a message to Paulo. Good luck and let me know what happens.

      Hi Greg,

      Forgive me for bugging you but for some reason I cannot get into The Great Planes forum. Whenever I try to read a thread there I am asked to complete my profile information but when I try to do that I get the following message

      Nick Sumner, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

      Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
      If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

      I have no idea why I am getting this message. Could you possible contact Paulo or one of the moderators and ask them to contact me? My email is 'nick at nicksumnerphoto dot com'

      many thanks
