title: A Technical Summary and Compilation of Characteristics and Specifications on Steep-Gradient Aircraft
author: Aircraft Branch, Air Commerce Division, Office of Plans
comment: very nice compilation of everything (nearly) vertical from 1961. My personal favourite is Bensens B-10 Prop Copter, a sort of "Flying Motorcycle" (page 110), something that is developed once more, which goes to show that there are very few new things under the sunBensen_B-10_Prop_Copter.JPG.

I have replaced the malfunctioning link with the one that Alan posted in #7, thank you, Alan, for posting!

After I had posted the thread I logged out and then clicked the link, JC and the document was downloaded, so it is really odd, that it does not work for you. Do you get any error message?

Oddly, it doesn't work for me now, either... Fortunately, I had copied the contents, more than 110 MB...

I get this error message:
