Wings of the Rising Sun: Uncovering
23731AVI
In the Pacific War's early years, Japanese air power was dominant. The only way for the Allies to defeat their enemy was to know it. This made the task of maintaining productive intelligence gathering efforts on Japan imperative. Establishing Technical Air Intelligence Units in the Pacific Theatre and the Technical Air Intelligence Center in Washington DC, the Allies were able to begin to reveal the secrets of Japanese air power through extensive flight testing and evaluation of captured enemy aircraft and equipment. These provided an illuminating perspective on Japanese aircraft and aerial weapon design philosophy and manufacturing practice. Fully illustrated throughout with a wealth of previously unpublished photographs, Mark Chambers explores Allied efforts to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of Japanese air power during the war years, and how this intelligence helped them achieve victory in the Pacific.

A History of British Waterplanes: Flyi
37976AVI
A new word ‘Waterplanes&rsquos; to denote the flying machines that took off and landed on water as listed in the sub-title. Although they played an important role in defence, communication, freight transport and early civil aviation hardly any trace of them remains today. Aircraft were not preserved and these fine craft have no museum of their own. The author wants this book to deal with the subject comprehensively. Starting with the early machines of 1909/10 and ending with the post-war period and the subsequent decline. ‘Whitehall decision-makers...who had difficulty understanding how things flew’ get a bit of a pasting from the author whose text is in his usual style. A massive appendix details the people and the makers involved and the book is fully indexed as well as being profusely illustrated with ‘amazing photographs’.

During this period the art of fighter design took some big and important steps forward. You will find, fixed-gun fighters and turret fighters, in both single and twin-engine form, plus the first generation of jet fighters. Types designed to meet the requirements of both the Royal Air Force and the Fleet Air Arm. Included the Folland Fo.118 and the Westland P.13.

Combat Aircraft 126
20365AVI
Flying from and between bases in China and India, the B-25s bombed every type of Japanese target during World War 2. Mitchell bombers took on the task of disrupting the flow of Japanese supplies to the frontlines at medium ranges, bombing Japanese supply centres, railway depots and bridges. It was in this last capacity that the B-25 established a unique role as a `bridge-buster'. This provided significant support for the British Fourteenth Army as they advanced into Burma.

Battle of Britian Memorial Flight
76609AVI
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is a standing reminder of the heroism and sacrifice of countless British and Commonwealth aircrew who flew and fought during the Second World War. Formed at RAF Biggin Hill on July 11, 1957, as the Historic Aircraft Flight, today the BBMF’s incredible collection of aircraft includes six Spitfires, two Hurricanes, one of only two airworthy Avro Lancaster bombers in the world, a Douglas C-47 Dakota and two de Havilland Chipmunks. The Flight’s Second World War aircraft have survived against the odds to exist in flying condition today and this publication charts each of their careers over the last seven decades or more. Author and illustrator Chris Sandham-Bailey has meticulously reproduced every known paint scheme worn by each of the aircraft - as well as gathering together an unrivalled collection of photographs to show how the appearance of the aircraft has changed. Never before have all of the BBMF aircraft liveries from the war’s end to the present day been catalogued and illustrated in one publication. Here you can see them both as Chris’ aircraft profile artworks and in rare photographs.
