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:

To bale out of a stricken airplane is a pilot's or aircrew's final chance to escape death. It is a traumatic and hazardous exercise that is only practiced in extremis and is in itself full of danger with no guarantee of survival. Many struggled free of a flaming and spinning aircraft only to see their parachute alight above them, some were machine gunned to death by their opponents as they drifted to earth, some landed in mine-fields and were blown apart and many landed in forests and died suspended from the treetops. And yet many survived, some to fight again and some to become prisoners of war. This book relates the experiences of many airmen who survived to tell the tale, some quite remarkable because of pure good luck, some because of ingenuity and some through pure determination to survive at all costs.This book includes escapes from crippled German, British and US aircraft; stories of the first pilots to use parachutes in WW1; amazing escapes from aircraft in the inter-war years.

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.
