Heinkel Raketen- und Strahlflugzeuge by Volker Koos has finally been released

Hi Gruppe,

The following book has finally been released:

Heinkel Raketen- und Strahlflugzeuge by Volker Koos.

Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Aviatic-Verlag GmbH (31 May 2005)
Language German
ISBN-10: 3925505822
ISBN-13: 978-3925505829
Price: £24.83 / EUR 37,95

The first publication date was 31 May 2005 but this was postponed several times. It has now finally been published.
Note this book is in German. Aviatic books have been published by Schiffer in the USA so perhaps (probably?) an English edition will be available in the future.
Oddly enough the book has not yet been added tot the Aviatic Verlag website. Perhaps they are also surprised by the release?

The book contains the following (main) chapters:
  • Der Beitrag der Heinkel-Werke zum Raketenflug
    - Die ersten Raketenflugversuche bei Heinkel
    - Die Heinkel 176
  • Die Heinkel-Strahltriebwerke und -projekte
    - Einleitung
    - Die Arbeiten unter Hans von Ohains Leitung
    - Die Arbeiten unter Max Adolf Müllers Leitung
    - Personelle und räumliche Fragen der Strahltriebwerksentwicklung bei Heinkel
  • Die Strahlflugzeuge der Ernst Heinkel Flugzeugwerke
    - Die Entwicklung des ersten strahlgetriebenen Versuchsflugzeug der Welt He 178
    - Heinkel He 280, das erste Strahljagdflugzeug der Welt
    - Strahlbomberentwicklung bei Heinkel, die He 343
    - He 162, der "Volksjäger"
    - Strahljägerprojekte der letzten Kriegsmonate
  • Anhänge
    - Bezeichnungen der deutschen Raketen - und Strahltriebwerke
    - Bekannte Organisationen und Untergliederungen der Holzteilfertigung für die He 162 (Holz-Baukreise)
    - Datenblätter
    - Bekanne Mustermachinen der He 162
  • Quellenangaben
I have only had time to scan the book briefly, but it is in the usual Aviatic format: many photos and drawings, informative text, brief biographies, performance tables, but no index!
Nurflügel Forever!
