Re: Recent books on the Westland Whirlwind Fighter

Speaking of Whirlwind books, I was greatly disappointed by Corduroy's book as I expected to find e.g. a thorough description and analysis of its performance, structure and handling. Yet, not a single piece of information on e.g. its spinning characteristics. I had hoped the book reproduced the official trials reports in extenso, yet nothing despite the author obviously having access to those reports. A very poor book.


I wonder if someone has scanned copies of those trials reports?
