    Press Release No. 1 - Jan 2005
    ---------------------------------
    Start the New Year with a Bang
    ---------------------------------
    World X-Planes
    ______________________________________________________________

    The first issue of World X-Planes, a 32-page quarterly magazine, will be published very shortly and shipping will start by late January/early February.

    This magazine is experimental, much like its subject matter. It is presently in 32 pages plus cover, but every effort will be made to increase the size and the frequency, depending on readers’ response.
    ________________________________________________________________

    Contents of Issue No. 1

    - Supercritical Wing: NASA engineer Richard Whitcomb's formula made airliners 15 percent more fuel-efficient.

    - Leduc’s Ramjets: French revolution! obtaining propulsion by heating air in a pipe. In the late 1940s, the Leduc 010 prototypes were nudging the speed of sound on ramjet power alone!.

    - Bell X-2 46-675: Exclusive chronology of the first-flown Bell X-2 which exploded over Lake Ontario in May 1953. Every free and captive flight.

    - What happened to the YB-49: Bob Cardenas tells the story of the huge flying wing -- the triumph, the tragedy, the real story!

    - Dassault Balzac V: It was an attempt to combine the super performance of the Mirage with the nimble maneuverability of the helicopter. It worked, at first.

    - BAC.221: This was the British mini Concorde, with a similar drooped nose, wings and colors. It flew for a decade and amassed a wealth of data for Concorde and all its supersonic descendants still on the drawing board.

    - Convair XF-92A Dart: The dynasty of USAF delta fighters began here. This was the first delta-wing aircraft to fly. Its 118 flights had their share of problems, but validated the new shape.

    - Profile of Joe Walker: This NASA pilot flew to space on the X-15 and made the first flight of the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle, forerunner of Apollo's LEM.

    ---------------------------------
    PS: Issue No. 1 will certainly become a collector's item!

    HPM Publications was established ten years ago to preserve the history of X-planes and test pilots. We published the only books about the Soviet Space Shuttle, Bell X-2, Northrop MX-324, DH.108, SR.53, Gemini Paraglider, and others. In so doing, we preserved the history of these magnificent projects. The magazine will serve the same purpose. There is so much history to preserve.

    i know!! it would have been amazing for him and the fans if he got pole for his home race......

    and yeah, that was right after i came in form doing the weeds- farm style! we have an ond forager we use to cut thistles and alike, but it got blocked, so whilst the cutting blade was still doing several hundred rpm. i may have poked a bit of metal in there and then i may have dropped it in there :rolleyes: then i may have found it bent and magled afterwards :rolleyes:
