History

You will note that Chapter 6, The US Navy Fleet Hydrofoil-PHM, ends with a very optimistic view of PHMs in the current US Navy, and larger hydrofoils in its future. However, this was not to be. Several years following the completion of my book, Ships That Fly, there were events surrounding the US Navy PHM program that are described in an Addendum to Chapter 6. All six PHM ships were decommissioned on July 30, 1993. This was the only time the US Navy has decommissioned an entire class of ships on the same day. This addendum describes some of the events leading to this sad day for the US Navy and the hydrofoil community. Also, documented are the many attempts to save the Ship, the day of the ceremony, attempts to save the ships even after the decommissioning, and finally the subsequent disposal of the ships and their status today.

John also collected a series of over 140 hydrofoil pictures and illustrations, and created a Hydrofoil Slide Show, entitled: A Century of Hydrofoil Development.

All three of these files are on the CD. To find out more, log onto: http://themeyers.org/ShipsThatFly/index.html John Meyer jr8meyer@comcast.net (Add040328wnw)

This work, which the author, Bruno De Michelis, completed after three years of extensive research, is written in English (a world first on this subject) and is divided in five chapters. It contains the full history of over 210 craft and their designers, with complete specifications, 266 rare photos and 131 three views drawings and illustrations, ranging from early experimental machines and imports to the latest flying boats and ground-effect craft of any size and manufacture. A chronological and alphabetic dual index is included for easy reference.

The book (324 pages) is available on CD (Adobe PDF and MS Word versions on each disc) * and in conventional format (A4 Folio, hard cover Deluxe Edition) at the Authors web site along with considerable on-line photos and history http://www.brunodemichelis.com/. (Add 01218wnw)
