"The art of aviation is in a most primitive state. So many curious theories have been brought out that, while they furnish food for thought, do not in any way advance or improve the structure of the machine itself, nor are they of any service in teaching the novice how to fly."

The download works ok here and no one else has reported any problems (yet). Might be something at your end? If anyone else is having the same difficulty with this title, please let me know.

I get blank pages occasionally when I use Firefox. When I cut and paste the link to another web browser it works fine. This also happens with the plans site occasionally.

Thank you John, that's useful to know.

The trick with Firefox isn't to open it directly but 'save link as' - that way it always works (you were downloading it anyway, weren't you?).
