Gnat Boys

Product code:  67261AVI
The Folland Gnat was used by the RAF mainly in the advanced training role, in the 1960s and 70s, where it proved to be an ideal lead-in trainer for high-performance aircraft such as the iconic Lightning, the first RAF supersonic fighter.

Fleet Air Arm Boys: Volume Three

Product code:  67278AVI
Helicopters have been going to sea with the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm for over 70 years.

The Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker - Third Edition

Product code:  52643AVI
The KC -135A made its maiden flight on 31 August 1956 and was still in front line service some 60 years later.

Other variants of the KC -135 included a reconnaissan...

Africa@War 58: Belgian Military Forces in the Congo Vol.1 The Force Publique 1885-1960

Product code:  70548AVI
Though the dynamics of the Congo Crisis have received, and continue to receive, a good deal of literary and scholarly attention, missing from the canon of work on military forces in the Congo is a study of the Force Publique, a paramilitary police force established by King Léopold II to secure the Congo Free State and to protect a vast geographical swath of Central Africa that had become his own personal possession following the Berlin Conference of 1884–1885. In many ways, the absence of any st...

To others, the military operation only e...

SAC in the 1980s

Product code:  98700AVI
