Wreck Recovery in Britain Then and Now
67942AVI
WRECK RECOVERY IN BRITAIN THEN AND NOWBy Peter J. MoranThe last 50 years have seen an incredible interest in the excavation of crashed aircraft. Schoolboys of the war period eagerly sought and swapped souvenirs, purloined from crashes under the eyes of the police or RAF guards but, after the surface wreckage was cleared away by Maintenance Units, no one realised that even greater treasures remained underground. Whereas on the Continent the Missing Research and Enquiry Unit left no stone unturned to try to trace the thousands of airmen who still remained missing, strangely enough no similar operation was carried out by the RAF on crash sites in the United Kingdom. Many of these still contained the mortal remains of pilots whose names had been added to the Memorial to the Missing unveiled at Runnymede in 1953. Perhaps, because the war in the air that followed the Battle of Britain had shifted its focus to Europe, it appeared to fade from people's memory that a hard-fought battle had taken place over the United Kingdom in 1940.

Junkers Ju 52/3m Success beyond the Lu
74430AVI
The three-engined Ju 52/3m is one of few aircraft that can lay claim to 50 years of active service, with a few still flying, demonstrating not only its longevity, but also the soundness of its design and construction. While fulfilling the Luftwaffe's operational strategies it also served major commercial air routes in many parts of the world and was also adapted for many other missions. Production was re-activated after the war in France and Spain, and a total of almost 5,400 were built. This book will provide the reader with deep insight into the design, construction and operation of aircraft that have contributed greatly to the development of aviation. More than forty years of gathering information and in-depth research will provide the reader with a wealth of data, photographs, and colour drawings of the iconic Ju 52/3m.

London City Airport
38070AVI
On Thursday, 5 November 1987, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II officially opened London City Airport, Britain’s only entirely new airport since World War Two. It was a momentous occasion. In its first full year London City Airport moved 133,000 passengers. In 2017 it is expected to reach five million. The author takes the reader through the history of the London Docklands, once the busiest port in the world, the controversial birth of the airport and with it the development of Canary Wharf and other developments. Well-endowed with images, this is a fascinating story that would make our enterprising Victorian forebears who built the docks proud.

Spider Zero Seven a Life
38966AVI
Silver Cross recipient, Mike Borlace is considered to be one of the most experienced combat helicopter pilots of recent times. Now he collates his experiences in this compelling wartime memoir set against the backdrop of the civil war fought in Rhodesia during the 1970s. Helicopters were a vital component of the small Rhodesian Defence Force and as part of special forces, Borlace and his fellow aircrew soon became key weapons in the counterinsurgency operations. Adopting new flexible tactics and blending stealth with courage, they carried the fight by air to the heart of the enemy, establishing a fearsome reputation. In this vivid history, Borlace chronicles the story of airmen, soldiers and leading figures such as Joshua Nkomo and Robert Mugabe's communist backed guerillas from the perspective of a professional officer at the sharp end.
