This review is from: Miles M.52: Gateway to Supersonic Flight (Hardcover)
I really found this book a fascinating read. The M52 is known as one of the great "lost chances" of British aviation, but why was it cancelled? The book advances a hypothesis, which seems very plausible, but which is so sad, so much lost for such a reason. Most of the book provides an "insiders" view of the project to build the M52, by arguably the greatest test pilot ever (Eric Brown), and is (again) fascinating. I'd recommend this to anyone with an interest in aviation history.
