{detailed description}Aircraft of the Royal Air Force since 1918 firmly established its pre-eminent position as the standard single-volume reference work on its subject when it was first published in 1957 Since that date it has gone through eight editions and has maintained its classic status in the world of aviation publishing.
Now in a new Ninth Edition, Putnam presents this famous title in the large format series. It has been comprehensively revised with hundreds of new photographs and a much amplified text. and the invaluable collection of three-view drawings has also been revised and augmented.
Aircraft of the Royal Air Force since 1918 provides a reliable and comprehensive guide to every aircraft ever used by the RAF since its establishment in April 1918 to the present day, ranging from the Snipe and Bristol Fighter of the First World War and the 1920s, to the Tornado and Eurofighter 2000 of modern times. All aspects are covered, including general evolution, service history, the personalities involved, allocation to squadrons, technical and performance data, serial number details and production statistics. The major RAF aircraft are supplemented by a lengthy appendix covering all miscellaneous types (from the Airspeed Courier to the EH 101 helicopter).
The book also encompasses other significant subjects such as civil aircraft impressed for wartime service, RAF gliders, nuclear weapons and missiles, Orders of Battle, and inventories of RAF aircraft on strength at key dates in its history.
