SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE 1936 ONWARDS (ALL MARKS)
An insight into owning, restoring, servicing and flying Britain's legendary World War 2 fighter
Autore: Alfred Price & Paul Blackah
An insight into operating, flying and maintaining the USAF's all-weather tactical jet fighter. Considered to be among the most successful of modern jet fighters with 104 aerial combat victories to its credit (with no losses) the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle twin-engine all-weather tactical jet fighter entered service with the USAF in 1976 and is expected to remain so until 2025. Author Steve Davies has been given privileged access to the F-15 Eagles of the USAF's 48th Fighter Wing at RAF Lakenheath, Suffolk, and their air and ground personnel, to give readers a stunning insight into operating, flying and maintaining the F-15.
The legendary Supermarine Spitfire receives the famous Haynes manual treatment with the full co-operation and authorisation of the Royal Air Force. Here is a unique perspective on what it takes to own, restore and operate a Spitfire, as well as a wonderful insight into the engineering and construction of this remarkable aeroplane. Presented mainly in colour, this highly detailed and attractively designed book is based around the restoration of the Spitfire Mk XVI at RAF Coningsby.
