The former between April and October , whereas 91 Squadron, which became operational on type during June , was to relinquish it earlier in favour of the Mk. XIV during early Although seen by both Supermarine and the RAF as an interim version, the Spitfire Mk XII when flown by the two Squadrons - managed to establish itself as a worthy opponent to the Luftwaffe as well as to both the Wehrmacht and Reichsbahn. Fws, Ju88s, trucks, trains, armoured vehicles, an unfortunate balloon and eventually V1s would all fall prey to the roaming Spitfire XIIs of 41 and 91 Squadrons.
In the first half of the booklet, the author outlines the operations flown by both squadrons, first 41 and then 91, listing missions with victories attained and losses sustained. Numerous photographs show aircraft being flown by both units. The second half of the book is given over to the operational record, listing and totalling all sorties flown by both squadrons. Then follows a table displaying all the units which flew the Mk XII, during and after it had passed from active service. Six pages list the many claims made by pilots.
Four pages cover the service lives of known airframes - the final page is the Roll of Honour - naming the 19 young pilots of six nationalities who made the ultimate sacrifice whilst flying Spitfire Mk XIIs. This volume contains the biography of 52 pilots: D. Andrews Aus , R. Bary NZ , F.

I was only used in small numbers 20 , but, for the British, it was the first step leading to the large scale introduction of the Fortress to Bomber Command. But that never happened and all the orders were consequently cancelled after the experiment of the Fortress Mk I. Indeed in the meantime, trials of the Fortress in Coastal Command proved satisfactory and, as this Command was looking for long-range land-based patrol aircraft, the Fortress was requested to equiq some Coastal Command squadrons.
Later in the war, the Fortress would return in the Bomber Command acting as an ECM aircraft from until the end of the war, while some others would be used by the Meteorological squadrons by The unexpected usage of the Fortress of the RCAF between and is also included in this study. The French were the first to express interest in this fighter and ordered large quantities before and during the first months of WW2.
When the French ask for an armistice, all of the contracts were taken over by the British and the balance of the Curtiss H still to be delivered were shipped out to the UK where they became the Mohawk.

Europe operating four successive marks of Supermarine Spitfires. Almost sixty pages of appendices present, in the usual fashion, tables and lists showing sorties flown on each aircraft type, first and last missions flown, RAF command structures, individual code letters matched to specific aircraft serial numbers, maps showing bases flown from, in the Far East, the United Kingdom and Europe.
Then follows the daily operational diary for the N. W Europe campaign only as all official records were lost for the earlier Far Eastern campaign , with monthly totals. Tables showing a total of A list of the 7 POWs is also presented. The last forty pages of appendices present the names, careers and in many cases photographs of all the aircrew who flew with the squadron in both theatres of war. As usual with P. This, the eighth booklet of P. It concentrates on the unique deployment of the Defiant as a purely turret-equipped fighter, through initial successes during the Battle of France period, and the later disappointing and costly missions flown during the Battle of Britain.
Subsequent use of the aircraft as a night-fighter, a target-tug or an air-sea-rescue aircraft is not within the scope of this book. The basic airframe of the Defiant was good - but lacking fixed forward-firing armament and when fitted with the turret - it could fulfil neither the expectations of the designers nor those of the RAF when flown under the combat conditions prevailing in the summer and autumn of In the usual 'Allied Wings' style units and their operational histories are described in sequence.
Twenty pages cover the ops flown as daylight fighter units by and Squadrons. A further page of text lists the second-line units which flew the Defiant during and is followed by the operational diary listing sortie totals of both Squadrons.

Category: Aviation; Inventory No: The iconic design of the legendary British fighter underwent steady upgrades and development before and during World War II, as evidenced by the numerous Marks of Spitfire that were produced. Displayed in extensive detail are the external and internal workings of the aircraft that played a key role Britain's defense.
Illustrated with over photographs and detailed line drawings. The De Havilland Mosquito was a fast, light warplane that could out run and out climb enemy aircraft, and therefore could dispense with heavy armament. The Mosquito made its debut as a fast, high-altitude photo reconnaissance PR aircraft, a job it continued to perform until the end of WWII. Mosquitos dropped 4,pound 'Cookie' bombs in lightning raids inside the German homeland, in a de-facto pay back for the German Blitz, and Mosquito Fighter Bombers FB carried out strikes on German security points and U-Boats.
Illustrated with more than photographs, two dozen of them in color, plus a table, color profiles, and detailed line drawings. The entered the war as a medium bomber, supporting Wehrmacht ground campaigns. After the tide in the conflict had turned against the Reich, and air superiority had been achieved by Allies, the aircraft was largely relegated to transport functions. This iconic warplane had its origins as a cutting-edge civil airliner in the mids. But war was looming and it was adapted for use as a bomber.

A work little known but seen by all in times of crisis, performed by highly specialized people: pilots, technicians, rescuers, doctors; all of who are trained to work in a team. You will discover the means, facilities, men and women belonging to military organizations, including State Services and civilian operators, all united by one mission; to bring professional rescue and medical assistance where there is an emergency. Their office is anytime, any place, anywhere; from a snow-capped peak to a busy motorway. Regardless of weather conditions; come rain or shine their soul focus is saving lives days a year.
This is what helicopter rescue entails. The intense training that they experience gives the team the ability to handle delicate, life threatening situations in extreme conditions. The images depict these missions, but what is more difficult to relate is the emotion of the teams involved. However, the reader will understand the gratification that this work gives and that all of the people involved are united by the same passion and a spirit of solidarity.

Dewey Code: Edition Unstated. Shipped Weight: Under grams. Mainly from the camera of one dedicated Lightning enthusiast and accomplished photographer. With the exception of a few illustrations included to set Fred Martins unique pictures in context, none of these photographs have been published in book form before.
We have deliberately chosen a fairly large format for this publication to allow us to do full justice to the high quality photographs and to enable the reader to study in detail many of the aircrafts various features and paint schemes. Accurate illustrations of the squadron badges have also been included along with the badges of the training and target facilities flights.
The introductions and captions to each squadron are a detailed account of its history whilst operating the Lightning. Even today some seventeen years after the type was retired from frontline RAF service it still engenders great affection with aviation enthusiasts around the world. We are sure that all of those who admire the Lightning will enjoy studying these remarkable pictures and take themselves back to a time when they can remember seeing and hearing this type in the air. For those too young to recall this great aircraft these pages will provide superb visual reference and inspiration.
Later Edition. Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage. Inventory No: X The I, I and I fighters were the world's first mass-produced fighters. A total of 17, Polikarpov fighters had been manufactured by the time their series production was terminated in Aircraft of the first series successfully operated in Spain with the Republicans during the civil war , in Chinese hands against the Japanese , and then with the Soviet Red Air Force again against the Japanese in Mongolia during the Nomonhan Incident Russian-flown fighter also saw action against the Finns in during the Winter War.
By the time the Wehrmacht launched its surprise attack on the USSR on 22 June , more than 20 Soviet pilots had made ace in Polikarpov fighters during these various conflicts. Still more aces were created in the first months of the German invasion, although losses suffered by the Soviet Air Force's five borderline military district units equipped with some Ibis, Is, and Is were astronomical.
Many future aces started their combat careers in Polikarpov fighters, and newly-winged pilots continued to train on the I UTI-4 two-seater until Is and Is actively participated in campaigns throughout and, in certain sectors of the frontline, into Amazingly, a handful of Polikarpov fighters remained in service through to This is an important title that helps tell the story of fighter evolution 'between the wars', as the Polikarpov family of aircraft effectively bridged the gap between the biplane fighters of WW1 and the monoplane fighters of WW2.
They also saw combat in all of the 'smaller' conflicts of the s leading up to WW2. This book also features a significant chunk of Spanish Civil War material, as well as operations against the Japanese in the late s - both areas are very popular with aviation historians and hobbyists alike. Each entry includes a colour illustration of the aircraft, a biography of the pilot and technical data on the aircraft.

Postage charge will be reduced as this item will post under g. The best and most complete guide to this topic ever produced.
During that time it wore a great many colour schemes, official and unofficial, and was adorned with many unit and individual markings. For the first time, the evolution and details of all these colour schemes and markings is described and illustrated. The colours of this elegant aircraft changed with its roles and the changes in official thinking with regard to camouflage; the infamous Aussie sense of humour added some striking and unusual markings to Mirages over the years too! The authors have researched this topic in great depth, helped by access to official and private photo collections and the memories of Mirage pilots and ground crew.
The manufacturers, Dassault, have also helped with information and photos of the very first Australian Mirages. Many of these photos are being published for the very first time, and they provide a striking visual record of the many colours carried by this much-loved French Lady.
The MiG was the most widely used jet fighter in the world in the late s and in the s. It was designed for the air superiority role and it first entered operational service with the Soviet Air Force in The early Fishbed variant, the MiGF, epitomized a simple, lightweight and cheapest to buy fighter. These aircraft were the backbone of the Eastern Bloc fighter air forces, while licence manufacture was undertaken in Czechoslovakia.
Copies were also produced in China, with further variants coming from this source, equipping many Asian and African air forces. This book covers: Type history and technical description ; Production overview; 4 pages colour camouflage profiles; Interior and undercarriage drawings etc. No English text, French text only. This stipulated a VTOL aircraft with separate engines for lift and for horizontal flight. This employed eight RB.
The Balzac V was not an entirely new aircraft. Mounting the vertical lift engines in the airframe was the first problem the project faced, and this was solved by Rolls Royce engineers. The lift engines were mounted two by two in four compartments of the aircraft on either side of the air duct of the Orpheus 3 engine, and were supplied with air via four intakes situated above the fuselage. Their exhaust pipes were situated in apertures with blanking caps, which would be closed during normal rapid flight.
The half-cone intakes of the propulsion engine were on each side of the cockpit. It used hydraulic-powered aerodynamic control surfaces elevons and rudder for conventional flight. For control in the vertical mode, when the speed would be less than the normal minimum flight speed, it used air jets puffers located under the nose, tail and wings. The air, drawn from special lift motors, was distributed by a control valve which the pilot could manipulate using the joystick, as on a conventional aircraft.
Eurofighters may also replace the F-5s and various aircraft in Norway and Greece and a number of other countries. The way for such an outstanding achievement was paved by a little-heralded and now seldom-remembered aircraft: the Experimental Aircraft Programme EAP demonstrator, from which Eurofighter is derived. Initiated as a private venture by BAe now BAE Systems with the British Government only belatedly putting in substantial amounts of money, EAP and its Eurofighter offspring survived extremely cost-conscious politicians, indifferent sometimes hostile decision-makers and a tug-of-war with Dassault, a company fully-backed by the French government.
The Trident, of mixed rocket and jet propulsion, was one of the most famous French prototype aircraft of the s. It was a glaring example of the impressive rebirth of French aviation industry after the ravages of World War II. It demonstrated outstanding performance and achieved some aviation records which still stand to this day. The Trident came close to consolidating in France the new concept of mixed propulsion the eight prototypes built logged more than flights including on rocket power. Unfortunately, it was axed in its prime.
Had it survived, it could have well become the stepping stone to hypersonic and orbital spaceplanes, the way the X-1, X-2 and X paved the way for the US space shuttle. This book traces the history of the Trident project, from inception to flight development. Readers of English should find it particularly revealing, as the Trident and other fascinating French X-Planes have had scant coverage in the English aviation library. The pictures are out of this world and include a stunning spread of a Trident-II in rocket flight.
It makes use of exclusive material provided by the late Godfrey Auty, exclusive pictures and recollections by former project personnel. This book, like most of our publications, is the only available book about its subject aircraft. Prelude to Concord: HP.

The Wright Brothers. McCullough, David. This is the dramatic story of the two courageous American brothers who pioneered manned flight. The author draws on the immense riches of the Wright Papers, including personal diaries, note-books, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence, to tell the human side of a profoundly American story.

McKenzie, Maisie. The legendary Fred McKay lived his life against the background of the vast continent of Australia. His area of responsibility covered over 3 million square kilometres, and probably he knew that whole great expanse of country, and the people within it, more intimately than any other human being. This is a documentary history of one of the most famous fighters ever built during a historically almost unrecognized was.
Flown by four air forces in support of the United Nations, the F Mustang dropped more napalm and fired more rockets than any other aircraft during that conflict - and in the process suffered the highest number of losses.

The Yak-1 entered Soviet service in , one of three modern types of aircraft accepted for production just prior to the German invasion of the USSR. Despite initial shortcomings, it soon proved to be the thoroughbred of the Soviet Airforce. Indeed, it remained in production until the end of the war, modernized but fundamentally recognizable.
By VE-day about 33, Yakovlev fighters had been built. Virtually all Soviet fighter regiments flew at least one variety of Yak for a time, including those which gained their fame identified with other aircraft, and consequently many pilots known as Airacobra or Lavochkin aces also scored victories with the Yak.
