Well,
I am glad I could help you guys.
And Human 177, if you still read this in time and you do go to "La Coupole" could you please take a picture of the V1 with cockpit that they have hanging in the income hall. I've been there a few times and I always forget to take a picture of it.
Greetings,
Erik

I've read David Irving's "The Mare's Nest" that provides quite a wealth of tidbits about the German's V-weapons programs and I think that's interesting read for anyone interesting in these special weapons - at least the edition I've read *is* a showpiece of meticulos research work - and it must be said that it doesn't even hint to those issues that have later earned somewhat notorious reputation for mr Irving (such as his opinions concerning the Holocaust) but sticks to purely technical/organisational issues of V-weapon programmes.

The book seems to be online now at
http://www.fpp.co.uk/books/MaresNest/

(I hope the moderators notice that I'm not promoting the other sections of that, mildly said, controversial site.)
