My alternate history TL
« on: December 04, 2015, 08:33:47 AM »
Hello!

I have a aviation-themed alt-hist timeline on the go here

http://otherhistory.proboards.com/thread/63/out-blue-fire

In short: Aircraft collector with de Havilland Venom, Hawker Sea Fury & P-51 Mustang (and a Cessna and an Enstrom helicopter) is sent back to May 1939 [a parallel universe were some things have gone very wrong]

Breaks air speed record twice, once with Sea Fury, then with the Venom.

Tries to change government policy: fails.

Tries to banish Air Ministry/War Office complacency:fails

Tries to get versions of Sea Fury/Venom/Mustang built, and cannon-armed Spitfires into service: partially succeeds.

this part of the story only goes as far as July 1940 [France falls, Norway doesn't]

Part II [which is still being written] will cover Battle of Britain to Pearl Harbor.

I will post it here if there is sufficient interest.

Enjoy!

Great stuff! A very interesting concept. I'm in as far as the meeting with Sinclair and Menzies, and it's holding up quite well.
