Luton Minor instructions set to be reprinted

The irrepresible Arthur Ord-Hume, who sparked the post-war British home-built aircraft movement with Luton Minor G-AFIR, is set to republish the building instructions, serialised both before and after the war by Practical Mechanics magazine.

. . .

The reprints not only include the 1938 (original LA.4) articles and the 1958 LA.4a articles but also those for the Flying Flea of 1935. The reprint will highlight the enormous part played by F J Camm's magazine in promoting amateur aircraft construction in this country

Arthur hasn't yet been able to confirm just when the works will be available, but rest assured, as soon as we find out, an update will appear! In the meantime click on the image below for more on Arthur's other publications!
