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. A comprehensive decal sheet is added for modellers' convenience. Three variants of this title are available, one including 1/32 scale decal sheet (MKD32008; 2x 250x200 mm sheets), one 1/48 scale decals (MKD48008; 1x 250x200 mm sheet) and this one with 1/72 transfers (MKD72008; 1x 200x150 mm sheet).

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 Using previously unpublished first-hand accounts and rare photography from the IAF archives and pilots’ private collections, Shlomo Aloni tells the definitive history of the IAF’s A-4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.

The Albatros was the scourge of the RFC on the Western Front in 1916-17, with pilots of the calibre of von Richthofen, Boelke and Schleich cutting swathes through their opponents. Well over 4000 Albatros scouts were built between 1916 and 1918, and they were also extensively used by the Austro-Hungarians against Russian, Italian and British aircraft until war's end.

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

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.

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.

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

Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE88. Pusher fighters, designed with the engine at the rear and the machine gun at the front, may have looked ungainly, yet they were able to hold their own remarkably well against their German counterparts. This is the story of the unusual pusher and its many aces, including Lanoe Hawker VC, who formed and led Britain’s first fighter squadron before dying in a ten-minute duel with Manfred von Richtofen, American ‘cowboy’ ace Frederick Libby, third-ranking French ace Charles Nungesser and the aggressive Belgian ace Fernand Jacquet. Packed with colourful artwork of a variety of pusher designs, paint schemes, and camouflage from many different nationalities, this book guides you through the twists and turns of this bizarre yet surprisingly successful fighter during World War 1.

Spad VII Aces of World War I
Guttman, Jon
ISBN: 1841762229
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE39. Built by the 'Société Anonyme Pour l’Aviation et ses Dérivés', (SPAD), the SPAD VII was the first successful fighting scout design to emerge from the company that had traded as Duperdussin pre-war. Flown ‘from the off’ by aces Paul Sauvage and Georges Guynemer, the scouts made an immediate impression. Indeed, the latter pilot was so impressed that he dubbed the Type VII the ‘flying machine gun’. The first of two volumes on SPAD aces, this book tells the whole story from the ace perspective. By the time production of the SPAD VII ended in the final months of 1918, around 6000 examples had been built, and Allied aces on every front had enjoyed success with the type.  As New

Vulcan Units of the Cold War
Brookes, Andrew
ISBN: 9781846032974
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE72. The best of the three RAF jet bombers in the early years of the Cold War, the Vulcan was designed as the Avro 698, and possessed fighter-like manoeuvrability at low level despite its size. First flown in August 1952, the Vulcan entered service in February 1957. Most were equipped to carry the Blue Steel stand-off missile, but in 1966 around 50 Vulcans were re-deployed in a tactical low-level bombing role. Three flew during the Falklands War, and the last Vulcans in service were used as aerial tankers until April 1984. This book examines the design of the Vulcan, exploring the improvements made to its engine and its evolving combat role. The illustrations include many in-flight photographs and detailed colour profiles. This is a timely examination of a distinctive and ground-breaking aircraft. Contents; Forging the hammer - development of the Vulcan; Cold War deterrent - high level lay down; Long range stand-off; Low level sanctuary; Colonial adventures; The Versatile Vulcan (MRR and tanking); Black Buck - the Falklands bombing; SEAD missions.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE86. The Curtiss P-36 was considered a revolution in performance design in comparison to other US fighters. Yet by the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor the P-40 was increasingly supplanting the P-36, which the US then exported to France under the guise of the Hawk 75. Flown by the French, captured by the Germans, sold to the Finns, transferred to India and Africa, and even incorporated into the RAF, the Hawk 75 saw service in every theatre of operations and in a variety of combat environments.

Fairey IIIF: Interwar Military Workhorse
Jarrett, Philip
ISBN: 9780946958726
Ad Hoc Publications  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 248 pages, 491 photographs, 20 line drawings, 31 colour profiles. Few interwar military aircraft gave such widespread and valuable service as the Fairey IIIF. From Great Britain to North Africa, the Middle East and Far East, it was to be found, in both landplane and seaplane form, serving at RAF and Royal Navy bases and on board aircraft carriers, capital ships and cruisers. Its versatility enabled it to perform a variety of roles - general-purpose aircraft, ambulance, bomber, carrier-borne or catapult-launched reconnaissance seaplane, gunnery spotter and target tug and glider-target launcher. The IIIF also found military buyers in several countries, serving in Argentina, Chile, Greece and New Zealand in small numbers, and it proved useful as a test-bed for engines, silencers and naval equipment - a sure sign that it was a capable and reliable aeroplane. The greatest accolade bestowed upon the IIIF, however, was that it was the chosen mount for Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) and Prince George when they flew with the Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm. Here, Philip Jarrett, one of our foremost aviation historians, has gathered together an astonishing collection of almost 500 photographs of this versatile aircraft, the vast majority of which have come from private archives and are hitherto unpublished, and supplied an original and incisive commentary to accompany them, the whole providing the most detailed appraisal of the Fairey IIIF ever to appear in print.  As New

F4U Corsair Units of the Korean War

ISBN: 9781846034114
Osprey Publishing  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM78. The definitive account of F-4 Corsair Units deployed in the Korean War, this book tells the story of the 26 US Navy Squadrons, most of which were carrier based, and the 6 Marine Corps F-4 squadrons that flew combat missions against the North Koreans. Drawing from a vast repository of personal interviews with F-4 pilots, the author paints a harrowing picture of the deadly combat of this often forgotten air war. Included in this volume is the story of Lt Guy Bordelon, the US Navy's sole ace of the Korean War, who flew an F4U-5N night-fighter against the night raiders sent up by the Korean Air force. Backing up the text is a vast number of previously unpublished private photographs that bring the stories of these pilots to life. Finally the book contains extensive appendices that detail every unit deployment by carrier, air group, Corsair model and tail code. Also included is a detailed list noting every Corsair lost in the war, with tail number, pilot, date of loss and the unit.  As New

US Navy A-1 Skyraider Units of the Vietnam War
Burgess, Rick; Rausa, Zip
ISBN: 9781846034107
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 112 pages, COM77. Designed and built as a carrier-based attack aircraft in 1944, the A-1 reached frontline units too late to see combat in World War 2. With the advent of jets in the late 1940s, the Skyraider was seen as a dated throwback to the golden age of piston-engined naval aviation. Despite its days seemingly numbered, the A-1 proved to be a huge success in the Korean War. Remaining in production through to 1957, some 3,180 Skyraiders had been built by the time the last one left the Douglas plant. Nicknamed the ''flying dump truck'', the A-1 remained a key component in naval air wings into the 1960s, allowing the aircraft to play its part in the escalating conflict in Vietnam. Both A-1 attack and EA-1F airborne early warning aircraft saw action in Southeast Asia from 1960 through to 1969, when the last examples were finally retired from carrier decks. The A-1s in particular bombed targets in both North and South Vietnam, despite the aircraft being highly vulnerable to enemy flak and fighters. Co-written by a two-tour Vietnam War combat veteran in the A-1, this is the first book that focuses exclusively on the aircraft's service in Vietnam, providing a must-have volume for Vietnam aviation enthusiasts.  As New

ISBN: 9788389450890
Stratus Poland 2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 56 pages, 130+ photos, 78 colour profiles. This latest volume in the "Polish Wings" series covers three fighter designs, which equipped the Polish Air Force from the late 1920s up to the outbreak of war. The Avia BH.33 was a Czech aircraft brought in to replace the unsatisfactory SPAD 51 & 61, and built under licence by PWS. The same company then designed the PWS 10, which was the first indigenous Polish fighter to enter service. Finally the PZL P.7a was the first of the classic Pulawski gull-wing monoplane fighters to see service, soldiering on right up until 1939 although it was obsolete by that time. The service use of all three aircraft is described, illustrated with many photos and full colour profiles. The PWS 10 also saw service in Spain, and this chapter in the type’s history is also described and illustrated. An invaluable guide to three classic inter-war fighters, with complete details of the colours and markings applied during their service.  As New

Mushroom Model Publications  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 152 pages. The Yak-23 was the final development of the highly successful Soviet fighter series which began with the Yak-1 in 1940.

This book describes the development and operations of the Hs126, and is illustrated with many photos and colour profiles, plus scale plans.

ISBN: 0760328609
Zenith Press Osceola, Wisconsin, U.S.A. 2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 127 pages, 160+ photos and illustrations. The first supersonic fighter in not just America but the world, the F-100 Super Sabre marked a real revolution in aircraft design. A celebration of this truly remarkable fighter, F-100 Super Sabre highlights the many firsts in a long and distinguished career: The Super Sabre preceded the Soviet Union's Mig-19 into the supersonic arena by as much as five months. It was the first operational jet fighter to exceed Mach I in level flight. And in its heyday the F-100 set a raft of speed and altitude records. The first in a noble line of fighters soon to be known as "The Century Series," the F-100 had the F-102 Delta Dagger, F-104 Star Fighter, F-105 Thunderchief, and the venerable F-160 Delta Dart as stablemates. In authoritative text and pictures, technical drawings and photographs, F-100 Super Sabre details the aircrafts every variation, her weaponry, and equipment. The book is a fitting tribute to the fighter nicknamed "Hundert" or more affectionately, "The Hun"--an aircraft loved by nearly everyone who flew or tended her and respected by all.   As New

In this book the operation of the Gannet by the Royal Australian Navy's Fleet Air Arm is described, from the decision to adopt the Gannet, through initial training in the UK and onto operations from RAN carriers. The author has tracked down many pilots, aircrew, mechanics and deck crew, and they tell the story of the Gannet in their own words. The successes, failures, high points and tragedies are all described, with typical Aussie honesty and humour. Fully illustrated, with many previously-unpublished photos, maps, cartoons and colour profiles. English text.  As New
