Your target for tonight …

... is a new blog written by Jakob, a frequent commenter around these parts. He's just finishing up a Master's on engine development at the interwar RAE, and then will roll into a PhD on Metrovicks and the gas turbine. This is pleasing for a number of reasons, not least because I've finally got enough blogs to make up an aviation section my sidebar. So go over and give Thrust Vector a recce!

And, speaking of ending Master's degrees and beginning PhDs, I would be remiss in not mentioning Ross Mahoney, who has handed in his MPhil on air support for the Dieppe raid and will be moving on to doing a PhD on the career of Leigh-Mallory. Well done, Ross!

  1. Thanks Brett. It is, as i'm sure you will agree, a nice feeling and a sense of fullfilment. I suppose from my perspective the greatest challenge has been completint while working as full-time college lecturer and having to do it all in my own time.

    It is good to see more research blogs appearing too, especially as they are realted to air power. What is your next step Dr. Holman?

    Doing a research degree while working full-time is a tough ask, I'm very glad I didn't have to do that!

    As for my steps ... publish, publish, publish. I hope.
