Why would I write a review of a book where I only have access to a part of it. Get serious people. I happen to have the hard copy of this book and would like to be able to copy the fortran programs from an ocr.

#### Easy aerodynamics

User Review - Aerodynamics - BordersVery easy to understand and cover a lot of aerodynamics principles that make very enjoyable this matter. Read full review
