Forgeworld states that there is a lot of 'Tau' stuff in there- care to share?

I believe they have all of the fliers assorted from the ForgeWorld 40k series, from the barracuda (Swift attack unit) the manta (a veritable flying fortress). I've only looked it over, but they are heavy on Ion cannons as their main guns, with railguns being more powerful but having a very low rate of fire. Seeker missiles are used in air-to-ground bombardment from higher targeting altitudes. As I remember it, some of them did still have burst cannons, but they were so weak and had such a short range I don't think they were of any significant use accept against the smallest aircraft.

The Taros Campaign book would actually have more of the stuff you are looking for. As well, some of the supplemental information you'll need for ground forces is in there, if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah, The Taros campaign has all the stuff for flyers in it, names of ships, speeds and armament etc, and a bit on the air campaing on Taros.

yeah, Taros is a good book- expensive- but i was gaudy enough to buy it, good fluff, a lot of misspellings. Well, if Aeronautica really doesn't have anything i guess this post can be locked.

IA has it's own book, actually, which is filled with info about all the different air forces. Personally, I think the tau force ends up simply being as many of the little buggers as possible, for the mobility advantage, in most games, but it doesn't have to be that way.

I'd definitely suggest picking up a coupla the resin models for it, even if you end up not playing, they make great display pieces, or proxies for the full sized model in 40k
