From the publisher:
McLelland explores the creation and development of the jet fighter in the Royal Air Force, from the emergence of the first jet designs following World War II (the Meteor and Vampire) to the first-generation jets which entered service with the RAF and Fleet Air Arm. For each aircraft type, it’s a look at how the design was created and translated into an operational aircraft. The basic development and service history of each type is examined through narratives and photos, even unto the latest generation of Typhoon aircraft.

Other aircraft types explored include the Hunter, Lightning, Phantom, Javelin, and Tornado F2/3.


FSM says:
Author familiarity and firsthand accounts bring these exciting aircraft to life. Interesting variety of photos may include one for the very model you are building.
