Happy Holidays everyone!

Bad news on American Thunder II. The book was originally supposed to be printed 12/1, then was delayed for two weeks until printing problems could be solved. Now instead of delivering the printed books, the printer sent the publisher another blue line proof copy!

I was hoping to get these out to all of you in time for Christmas, but I don't think that is going to happen. It now looks like early January.

On a positive note...the book is much bigger and better than the 1st edition. I reshot many of the photos and added a lot of WWII, Korea and Vietnam era photos, most never published before. Also added is new info, new chapters and more.

Best regards!
Frank

No problem. I figured it would be first of the year, just from knowing how these publisher people can be. We put out a catalog and if they say you'll get it in March, it's May.
