4+ Publishing  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, With its roots in the successful P-80 Shooting Star jet fighter, the Lockheed T-33, popularly known as the T-Bird, became the USAF's standard advanced trainer of the 1950s. Almost 5,700 T-33As were built for the USAF and USN, of which more than 1,000 were transferred to NATO Allies and others to a number of smaller air forces worldwide, and the aircraft were also licence-built in Canada and Japan. The type's operational service spanned well over 40 years, thus reaching an amazing record in longevity. The "Dozen Set" line of handbooks is aimed especially at scale modellers. Each title describes twelve particular aeroplanes, documented by period photos, and also brings useful detailed shots which can be utilised in finishing the models. The publication has 28 pages, including a total of 49 overall and detailed photographs, 12 pages with colour camouflage schemes and their description. Text in English.

Israeli A-4 Skyhawk Units in Combat
Aloni, Shlomo
ISBN: 9781846034305
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM81. The light and agile A-4 Skyhawk was the first modern American jet to be offered to the Israeli Air Force, marking the point where the US took over from France as Israel’s chief military supplier. Deliveries began too late for the A-4 to fight in the Six-Day War, but it soon formed the backbone of the IAF’s ground-attack force. From 1969 to 1970 it flew endless sorties against Egyptian forces in the War of Attrition. Then, during the Yom Kippur War, five squadrons of A-4s saw combat and 50 planes were lost as they battled against the Arab armored onslaught. Using previously unpublished first-hand accounts and rare photography from the IAF archives and pilots’ private collections, Shlomo Aloni tells the definitive history of the IAF’s A-4 squadrons, including the story of Ezra 'BABAN' Dotan who became an ace with an unique double-kill of MiG17s.  As New

Fw 190 Sturmbocke vs B-17 Flying Fortress: Europe 1944-45
Forsyth, Robert
ISBN: 9781846039416
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, DUE24. The Fw 190 was one of the best air superiority aircraft of World War II, and when it first appeared over the Channel in 1941 it sent shockwaves through the Allied air commands. By 1944, these fighters had been up-gunned to serve as the front line of defence against the Allied bombing campaign. Although the Fw 190s were responsible for shooting down hundreds of Allied bombers, they met their match against the USAAF B-17 ‘Flying Fortress’. Capable of carrying 4,000 lbs of bombs and bristling with .50cal machine guns, the B-17 could sow death in every direction. Using brand-new artwork and first-hand accounts, this book recreates the deadly drama in the skies above Germany in the closing stages of the war.

F-105 Thunderchief Units of the Vietnam War
Davies, Peter
ISBN: 9781846034923
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM84. Facing the most formidably concentrated air defences in history, pilots of the F-105D flew against North Vietnamese targets day after day during the 43 months of Operation Rolling Thunder. Despite its limited maneuverability and the lack of self-sealing fuel tanks, which made it susceptible to combat damage, the 'bombers' shot down 27 MiG fighters in 1966 - 67. This book illustrates the importance of the Thunderchief in the Rolling Thunder campaign, including the pioneering suppression of enemy air defences (SEAD) methods developed by the F-105 'Wild Weasel' crews. Discussing the aircraft’s strengths and weaknesses and using first-hand narratives, Peter Davies captures the essence of flying the ‘Thud’ against heavy defences, and describes the development of wartime tactics and the heroic accomplishments of a selection of its aircrew. Contents: Chapter 1 - 1953-65. A brief account of the design philosophy, early service and first deployments to Vietnam from August 1964 for attacks on Laos; Chapter 2 - Thai Home.Takhli and Korat Royal Thai air bases become the home of the 355th and 388th Tactical Fighter Wings and the launch pads for most of the attacks during Rolling Thunder from 2 March 1965; Chapter 3 - 1966-67. The height of Rolling Thunder. Vietnamese defences are much improved and F-105 losses mount; Chapter 4 - MiG killers. Despite its designated bomber role the F-105 downs 27 MiG fighters, mainly with its internal gun, including two for one pilot in a single mission; Chapter 5 - Wild Weasels. ‘Iron Hand’ missions against North Vietnam’s defences begin in July 1965. The hunter-killer F-100; F-105 team concept is developed for attacking SAM sites.  As New

Martin, Fred
ISBN: 1905414005
Dalrymple & Verdun  2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 112 pages, 160 colour and B&W pages. This highly illustrated book is a photographic appreciation of the Lightnings’ service in the RAF, including all the squadrons which operated this stunning aircraft. 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. ‘Lightning Force’ sums up the shear exhilaration of the power, speed and noise that is 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.  As New

Sturgeon: Target-Tug Extraordinaire
Buttler, Tony
ISBN: 9780946958771
Ad Hoc Publications  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 84 pages. Monograph dealing wih specific aircraft types normally confine themselves to subjects that have achieved fame, pehaps by dint of their combat record, their commercial success, their unique design qualities or the significance of their existence in the history of aviation generally. The Short Sturgeon, it is fair to argue, achieved distinction in none of these fields. It was first ordered as a naval bomber but in that form did not progress beyond prototype flying. When production orders were eventually placed, they covered a target-tug variant - an aircraft type that pursues a relatively unglamorous career in second-line squadrons and is usually accorded scant attention. Nevertheless, the Sturgeon was a handsome machine and is, technically speaking, of considerable interest on account of its being one of the very few twin engined, propeller driven aeroplanes designed for service on board aircraft carriers. In the air, it demonstrated outstanding qualities and was well-liked by its aircrews. This profusely illustrated study, by one one of Great Britain's foremost aviation authors, relates the technical and development record of the Sturgeon and considers its standing in the domain of aeronautical history. Includeing also first hand accounts from those who flew it, it presents for the first time a balanced appraisal of an intriguing subject that, hitherto, has largely been ignored.  As New

All the models - including those sold to the Iranians before the 1978 Revolution - as well as all the carrier-borne units which used them are shown, described and analysed in this book. Foreign operations, weapons, anecdotes, nothing is left in the shadows. More than 200 often unpublished photos and more than 40 colour profiles illustrate this tribute paid to Grumann’s last Cat.  As New

F-4 Phantom
Bowman, Martin W.
Airlife Publishing  2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages. The Phantom was developed for the US Navy as a long range all weather fighter and first flew in May 1958. It became operational in 1961. The US Air Force then realised that the Navy had an aircraft that was far better than any tactical aircraft in their own inventory and ordered 543 F-4C variants. There then followed a spate of orders from around the world. In Britain, it was ordered for the Royal Navy and Air Force, but was modified to take the Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan. One of the Royal Navy's Phantoms stole the record for the fastest Atlantic crossing, a record that stood until taken by the remarkable Blackbird. Phantoms have been used in combat in many conflicts throughout its long service history. It was one of America's most utilised aircraft during the long Vietnam War and has been flown in anger in the Middle East by a number of different air forces. The F-4 is still operational with several units but is now coming to the end of its long and successful period as a front line combat warplane.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 192 pages. 12 pages of colour illustrations showing 38 aircraft, 400-plus extraordinary photos, Scale drawings of five aircraft types in both 1/48 and 1/72 standard modeler’s scales. Société Anonyme pour Aviation et ses Dérivés (SPAD) was one of the most important aircraft manufacturers during World War I, but until now the focus of published materials about it has been on its two most famous single-seat designs, the SPAD 7 and SPAD 13. This new book takes a look at SPAD’s less well known two-seat designs, including the SPAD SA series, the widely used SPAD 11 and SPAD 16, and the excellent SPAD 20, which arrived just before the war ended. The latest addition to the Flying Machine Press library, SPAD Two-Seat Fighters of World War I has the most extensive coverage - history, evolution, combat use, photos, color profiles, and scale drawings - of these aircraft ever published. Eagerly awaited by World War I aviation buffs and modelers, this volume is an important contribution to the history of SPAD aircraft.  As New

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: Robotic Air Warfare 1917-2007
Zaloga, Stephen J.
ISBN: 9781846032431
Osprey Pub Co  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG144. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are the most dynamic field of aerospace technology, and have only emerged from the shadows recently, despite having been in use for decades. After some limited use in World War II, UAVs emerged as substitutes for manned reconnaissance aircraft in missions deemed too dangerous to risk an aircrew. This book examines the development of UAV technology and speculates on its future potential. Packed with rare, recently declassified photographs and detailed full-colour cutaways, this title goes on to investigate the deployment of UAVs, from early Israeli airforce use to their current role over Iraq and Afghanistan today.  As New
