I'm hoping I can take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastically informative volume; there's an incredible volume of history and experience, presented with astonishing clarity and a remarkable set of illustrations. I've referred to this book constantly in some admittedly very casual adjustment of a 1960s C. Plath and a Bendix Mark II.
I have one very humble request: if there is a second edition, I wonder if it might be possible to provide a few cross-references in later sections to information that appears earlier, in what I recall as the "teardown" section; I spent many minutes flipping back and forth through the pages labeled Horizon Mirror before finally discovering the information about the adjustment of the Horizon mirror on a Mark II much earlier in the book.
Again: this is a remarkable and indispensible book. The more I learn, the more I appreciate the volume of knowledge it contains, and the complete lack of said information in other places one might expect to find it (most notably Wikipedia). Thanks!
Yours in gratitude,
