Miles Aircraft -The Post-War Years

Miles Aircraft -The Post-War Years Reading and Newtownards 1945-1948

Peter Amos


The culmination of decades of meticulous research, this massive volume tells the story of Miles Aircraft during arguably its most innovative but certainly its most difficult period.
Peter Amos concludes that the collapse of the company was orchestrated by a financial advisor to the company.
He also argues that the M.52 would have achieved supersonic flight, ahead of the Americans, had the project not been cancelled.
This volume covers, in far greater depth than any previous study, the Messenger, Aerovan, Gemini, Marathon and Merchantman, the Martinet Trainer conversion for the Royal Navy, plus all of the company’s many design studies.
Detailed individual histories of all aircraft produced in this period, plus reproductions of advertisements and numerous technical drawings are provided. There are more than 600 photographs, many of which have not been published before.
The accompanying CD contains much additional material on the demise of the company and production of various types, and many hundreds of additional photographs.
A4 448-page hardback book + CD.
Available separately, the Appendices on the CD have been produced as a 352-page softback book.
