    Thanks to Gary for pointing us to three interesting documents on air
    Not having had great interest or knowledge about air navigation may explain
    why I haven't come across any of those works before, or their authors. It's
    interesting that "Most probable position", by M D Wright, covering air nav.
    up to 1941, doesn't seem to have been published until 1972. I see that
    several copies are available via Abebooks at reasonable cost. There was a
    tantalising snippet remaining about  a convoy transatlantic flight of three
    American flying-boats in stages in 1919 which was quite new to me.
    As for the NACA report no 131, from internal evidence I would judge it to
    date from the early 1920s. Can anyone offer a reference to the complete work
    it forms a part of, and its date?
