Book Summary:

Designed and built by the same company that was responsible for the legendary de Havilland Mosquito in the Second World War, the Sea Vixen is one of the great carrier-borne jet fighters of the Cold War. The iconic, all-British twin-boom twin-turbojet fighter flew from Royal Navy aircraft carriers at the height of the Cold War from 1959 to 1972, helping to transform Britain’s carrier aviation capability. The Sea Vixen was one of the most notable aircraft designs of its era, with cutting edge technology and the capability to go transonic. It was also the first British aircraft to be armed with guided missiles, rockets and bombs instead of guns and was formidably capable. It was replaced by the F-4 Phantom. Today, the world’s only flying Sea Vixen (G-CVIX, XP924) is based at RNAS Yeovilton, where it is owned by the Fly Navy Heritage Trust and operated by Navy Wings (formerly known as the Royal Navy Historic Flight). It forms the centrepiece of this Haynes manual. The Haynes De Havilland Sea Vixen Manual is published in association with the Fly Navy Heritage Trust and authors Denis Calvert and Brian Johnstone had access to Sea Vixen, G-CVIX, XP924. Individual chapters cover the genesis of the Sea Vixen in the DH110 that claimed the lives of test pilot John Derry and his flight test observer in the highly publicised crash at the Farnborough Air Show in 1952; the Sea Vixen Story; the Sea Vixen in Royal Navy service; restoration to flight of G-CVIX, XP924; the Pilot’s view; and the Ground Engineer’s view. Because the Sea Vixen underwent deep maintenance as this book was being prepare, detailed photography of the aircraft’s structure is featured.

Book Summary:

'Utterly brilliant: a fantastically exciting book... This really does read like the best kind of thriller. His best book yet' James Holland, author of Normandy '44 April 1982. Argentina invades the Falkland Islands. In response, Britain despatches a naval task force. Eight thousand miles from home, its fate hinges on just twenty Sea Harriers against the two hundred-strong might of the Argentine Air Force. The odds against them are overwhelming. The MoD's own estimates suggest that half the Harriers will be lost in the opening days of the conflict. They need backup. Within three weeks 809 Naval Air Squadron is reformed, trained and heading south, ready for war. Not since World War Two had so much been expected of such a small band of pilots.

Book Summary:

Great Britain’s aircraft industry started in 1908, with the first formally registered organization in the world to offer to design and build an aeroplane ‘for commercial gain’. This was when the Short brothers, Oswald, Eustace and Horace, decided that aeroplanes would overtake balloons as a business opportunity in the aeronautical world and formed the partnership ‘Short Brothers’. From this start, the UK aircraft industry expanded and grew rapidly, going on throughout the rest of the twentieth century to achieve many ‘firsts’ in the aeronautical world, with some remarkable technical successes and gaining a reputation to match. There were also setbacks along the way. This book tells the complete story of the 110 years since the start, all the companies formed and the aircraft they produced, highlighting the advances in aeronautical ambition and technology. It is the story of the creation, survival and decline of all one hundred and twenty-three of the aircraft design and construction companies formed between 1908 and 2018. The exhilaration of success and the magic of aviation technology are vividly illustrated by the technical and political birth stories of iconic projects, such as the Cirrus/Gypsy Moths, the Tiger Moth, the flying boats of Imperial Airways, Spitfire, Lancaster, Viscount, Vulcan, Harrier, Buccaneer and many more. The rotary wing industry is not forgotten. The birth of the jet turbine engine and the quest for supersonic speed is included. The stories of the disappointments of failure and disaster, such as the Brabazon, Comet, Princess, Rotodyne and TSR-2, and the growth of international collaboration in Concorde, Tornado, Airbus, Eurofighter Typhoon and other projects are included, in the context of the international scene and domestic politics. The conclusion highlights the prominent reminiscences and speculates on the future of the aircraft industry in Britain.

Book Summary:

The conception of the Pegasus engine in 1957 upset all the conventions of aircraft design. It was previously usual for aircraft designers to seek a suitable engine, but this was an engine that sought an aircraft. The aircraft thatresulted was the famous Harrier that is still in front-line service with air forces around the world including the RAF and US Marine Corps. This book takes an in-depth look at the engine's original design concept, initial production and flight testing. It then goes on to explain how the developments and improvements have been made over the ensuing years and includes experiences of operational combat flying, both from land and sea.The book is written in a non technical style that makes comfortable reading for all enthusiasts and historians and is copiously illustrated with many previously unseen photographs and diagrams.
