Eagles over the Sea 1943-45: A History of Luftwaffe Maritime Operations

Product code:  77652AVI
This is the second volume of Lawrence Paterson's detailed account of all the Luftwaffe's naval operations during World War II.

Combat Aircraft 132: F-102 Delta Dagger Units

Product code:  40677AVI
Conventional subsonic fighters with guns and free-flight air-to-air rockets would be incapable of reaching these incoming bombers in time to prevent even one from delivering a devastating nuclear attack.

A massive research and development effort produced the F-102A '1954 Fighter', the J57 afterburning turbojet, it...

A Detailed History of RAF Manston 1945-1999

Product code:  57648AVI
Having been classified by the Air Ministry as a 'Master Diversion' airfield, RAF Manston was for many years open twenty-four hours a day and available to both civil and military aircraft 365 days a year. It was also later equipped with the Pyrene foam system, which both civil and military aircraft could use when they had problems with their undercarriage: there is no doubt that the foam carpet saved many lives. The most spectacular occasion that it was used was on 20 April 1967 when a British Ea...
