Grapevine - Our monthly review of happenings in the aircraft preservation world
Thunderceptor - Of all the experimental types produced during the evolutionary years of the jet fighter, few were stranger to behold than Republic's XF-91 interceptor. Its story is told here by Philip Jarrett
Flying the Bedstead - Part 2 - Last month Sqn Ldr R. A. Harvey described his introduction to flying the vertical take-off Rolls-Royce Thrust Measuring Rig, better known as the Flying Bedstead. He concludes his article with an account of his part in testing the oddest flying machine of the Fifties

Another job for Burgoyne - Part 2 - Part Two of the series in which Sqn Ldr Tom Burgoyne, attached to an American Fighter wing somewhere in Hampshire during the spring of 1944, acts as an occasional test pilot for a local RAF maintenance unit detachment. This month Burgoyne air-tests a Spitfire Mk II and, so to speak, gets carried away. Fact or fiction? Decide for yourself. Tom Burgoyne is the creation of Wg Cdr Tom F. Nell.
