Finding Their Way Home

I read Flight Journal from cover to cover and look forward to the each issue. Recently, reading about Naval aviators in WW II, I came back to a thought has plagued me over the years. How in the hell did these guys find their way around over miles of blue ocean … finding way back […]

A Quick History of Concurrency

I really enjoy your magazine entirely. As I read the latest issue (June 2013), I found myself disagreeing with one statement made by Robert Dorr on his article “A Troubled Bird” about the F-35. On p. 34, in discussing the supposed “concurrency” of the F-35 program, he says “concurrency … (is where) … the aircraft […]

Lancaster Dualies?

This was an interesting article but I cannot help but notice that the Lancaster “Phantom of the Ruhr” happens to have dual flight controls, unlike the British line bombers of WW II, which were almost all single pilot with a flight engineer assist. The only British “heavy” bomber to have dual controls appears to have […]

Royce’s Panther 106 Still Lives?

Your June 2013 edition of Flight Journal had a wonderful article about Royce Williams and his flying achievements during the Korean War. As I was reading the article, the aircraft number seemed so familiar and when I saw the photos in the article, I realized where and why. I’ve photographed that aircraft on the flight […]

F-35: A Troubled Bird

Thank you for another wonderful issue! The F-35 is an egregious, callous assault on the American taxpayer, and demonstrates how little say we have to say when it comes to the coddling of big business! I find it absolutely disgusting. PW Whitworth You have to work on letting your real feelings be known. Thanks for […]

More On Flying Wings

I thoroughly enjoyed Barrett Tillman’s article about aeronautical engineer Barnaby Wainfan, “Cheating the Wind.” However, I took issue with one point that he made regarding the flying wing concept. In the article, Mr. Wainfan stated that when it came out, the flying wing shape was thought to be the shape of things to come, but […]

Kudos for the Team

Just because I don’t rip through it immediately does not mean I enjoy Flight Journal any less. The June issue was particularly good. Robert F. Dorr gets an “Attaboy!” for writing an informed and balanced piece on the F-35; hard to do on that “Too big to fail” program. “Shadow” (Roy Stafford) has to be […]

More Odd Shootdowns More Bizarre Victories

You missed enough ”other” bizarre victories for another whole article! For instance, there were the two U.S. Navy aviators, flying ADs or SPADS, who combined for a gun kill of a MiG-17 in Vietnam Then there is the just-recently acknowledged shootdown of a MiG-17 by a US Army OV-1A Mohawk, flown by Capt Ken Lee […]
