Excellent in content, scope (every fighter aircraft ever flown), and presentation.

In Process

There are errors:

On page 418, there is a minor error for the MS406 cutaway drawing. The last of the descriptions do not agree with the drawing. Number 78 was inserted in the drawing, but was not inserted in the descriptions and the following descriptions were not updated. For the descriptions, numbers 78 through 82 should have been changed to numbers 79 through 83, with number 78 (for the machine gun ammunition drum?) being inserted. I certainly rate this as a very trivial error. ( )
