->'''Fraser:''' I did read a flight training manual in my grandmother's library. There were a couple of pages missing, but I'm sure nothing vital... And I'm guessing that there are a lot of similarities between a Sopwith Camel and today's light aircraft.

In December 1777, the Hessian captain Johann Ewald noted that it was common to find American officers in posession of the standard texts of Santa Cruz, Frederick, Turpin de Crisse, Grandmaison, Jeney, and Tielke as well as excellant small handbooks recently published by their own countrymen."''
