the past few months, I tried to recover some lost pages and reconstruct the
rest, bit by bit. I still have to redo the start page.
properly illustrate several answers I've given to incoming questions, I opened
two additional pages, one related to Hungarian
Bf 109Gs at the end of war, while another one to Miscellaneous
there continues to be a steady flow of posts on the Discussion
Forum. Please drop by and post any questions you may have related to
the topic, or even off topic.
to serious problems with my web host, Homestead, I lost most of the web site.
Sad moment, that only reinforces my original point of view, namely my main
focus should be on writing books and articles and I should spend only limited
time on working on this web site, which can disappear overnight, without
warning (I should have saved the pages, though)...
I opened the 'Provisory Master List of all Bulgarian Aircraft between 1919
and 1946'. Go to the main page and click on 'Bulgaria'. Any
comments or corrections are welcome.
also added four photos that show (to me) unknown aircraft, as well as one quiz
to the 'Unknown & Quiz' page. Please post your answers on my Forum
or Guest Book.
now I have an 'official' banner to my web site. Anyone who wishes to post a
link on his/her web site, please contact me for the banner.
has been over 4 months without any updates. The reason is that in the past
time period I was very busy finishing a book manuscript, as well as two other
materials offered as contributions to books that I will co-author. Also, I
handed over an article to the French magazine 'Avions', which should be
printed in the next issue. I will keep sharing the news with you all as soon
as any of these materials will be published. As mentioned earlier, writing
takes advantage over this web site. Hopefully though, from now on updates will
be more frequent.
I included 5 new photos and 3 old scans recovered from the crash in the 'Unknown
& Quiz' section. Good luck in identifying them! As usual, please post
your replies to the forum. Talking of the forum, we are closing in to the
500th post! Thanks for all of your contributions.
page opened in the Rumanian Air Force section: 'ARR Units (1940-1945)'. Four
new photos inserted in the U&Q page: two Italian wrecks and two fighter
monoplanes from the inter-war era.
over six weeks since the last update. The reason is that I am working on a
book manuscript (along with 2 articles) and they are 'chewing up' all my
available spare time. However - as mentioned earlier - writing books/articles
has always priority over building my web site. Nevertheless, I could find time
to include four more photos in the 'Unknown and Quiz' section. One of
them has already been solved, while two other ones received hints. The
previous photos have all been positively identified. I updated the captions in
red. Please check the section out and post your thoughts on the Forum. Talking
of the forum, we passed the 200th post. My web site was visited by over 2000
times, while the forum almost 3000 times. Thanks to all visitors!
has been four weeks since the site was opened. Since then, there were over
1350 visitors to this site. We now have more than 110 posts on the Discussion
Forum. Apparently, the pace starts to pick up...
new page was started. It's called 'Unknown Photographs & Quiz (Test)'.
Here I will post photos of airplanes and airmen that are either unknown to me
so I need your input, or I know the answer, but I challenge you to find it.
Two photos (one in each category) were posted. Replies either on the
Discussion Forum, or in Guest (Guess?) Book.
on Rumanian Aircraft Types finally completed. Next, Bulgaria.
the 18th day since the site has been opened, the 1000th visitor 'dropped by'.
On the Forum there are over 70 posts. A slow but steady start.
additional tables inserted to the Rumanian Air Force Chapter. There is a final
one - school airplanes and trainers - left.
will be Bulgaria.
few photo caption updated thanks to Carlos Herrera and David E. Brown. New
chapter - dealing with Trainers and Liaison airplanes - opened. Several new
photos uploaded in the Fighters and Transports chapters. ARR airplanes' table
first table, listing Fighter and Fighter/Bombers, was finally inserted to the
ARR pages. I have problems inserting text files larger than 6000 characters,
hence the slow conversion of tables (thanks for the help of Victor Nitu). More
tables to follow...
the first week on-line, there were over 600 visitors to the site. Also, there
are 30 posts on the Forum. I consider this as promising start :o)
first constructive response came from Franek Grabowski, Poland. He submitted
another colour view of the P-40 shot down somewhere in North Africa, along
with a description. For details, see 'War Booties and Wrecks' section
the first 3 days, more than 300 visitors checked out the web site. The first
queries were also posted on the Forum

started on the web page.
