f your idea of as 'bizarre' aircraft is pre-war DH Dragon Rapide, a bloated Boeing Super Guppy, or a BA Airbus with an 'ethnic' tail design, then think again! What about...Horatio Phillips's Multiplane with its 200 separate wings? The Goodyear Inflatoplane, a totally inflatable aircraft which needs to avoid landing near rose bushes? There was the Fieseler F1 103R, basically a V1 flying bomb with a seat… or the Nakajima Ki-115, a plane designed to take off but not to land… who could forget the Caspian Sea Monster, a ten-engine 500-tonne giant designed to fly at 500 km/hr at a mind boggling altitude of just 16 feet… not to mention the Hughes H4 Hercules, the plane with the longest wingspan ever, made entirely from plywood. Now THAT is what bizarre aircraft is all about!

The Female Few: Spitfire Heroines. Hyams The Female Few: Spitfire Heroines. Hyams

Through the darkest days of the Second World War, an elite group of courageous, gifted women risked their lives as courier pilots, flying Lancaster Bombers, Spitfires and many other aircraft in hundreds of perilous missions across the country. In The Female Few, five of these astonishingly brave women tell their stories for the first time, awe inspiring tales of incredible risk, tenacity and sacrifice. Their spirit and fearlessness in the face of death still resonates down the years, and their accounts reveal a forgotten chapter in the history of the Second World War. As Yvonne Macdonald, now 90 and living in Cape Cod, says, "It was a kind of freedom you never get any other way, it was as if you had wings sewn on your back. A lot of people here in Cape Cod don’t even know I was in World War Two. Or what I did." They do now.

Open Cockpit. Lee. Open Cockpit. Lee.

Thanks to a broken leg during flight school, Arthur Stanley Gould Lee gained valuable additional time flying trainers before he was posted to France during World War I. In November 1917 during low-level bombing and strafing attacks, he was shot down three times by ground fire. He spent eight months at the front and accumulated 222 hours of flight time in Sopwith Pups and Camels during a staggering 118 patrols; being engaged in combat fifty-six times. He lived to retire from the RAF as an air vice-marshal in 1946. Author of three war books, this is by far his best. Lee puts you in the cockpit in a riveting account of life as a fighter pilot at the front. At turns humorous and dramatic, this thoughtful, enlightening, true account is a classic to be ranked with Winged Victory by V. M. Yeates, also published by Grub Street.

The Spitfire. Carruthers. The Spitfire. Carruthers.

The Supermarine Spitfire was a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries throughout the Second World War. The Spitfire continued to be used as a front line fighter and in secondary roles into the 1950s. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only British fighter in production throughout the war. The Spitfire was designed as a short-range, high-performance interceptor aircraft designed by R. J. Mitchell. The Spitfire's elliptical wing had a thin cross-section, allowing a higher top speed than several contemporary fighters, including the Hawker Hurricane. Speed was seen as essential to carry out the mission of home defence against enemy bombers. During the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire was perceived by the public as the RAF fighter of the battle, though the more numerous Hawker Hurricane shouldered a greater proportion of the burden against the Luftwaffe. The Spitfire units had a lower attrition rate and a higher victory to loss ratio than those flying Hurricanes. After the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire became the backbone of RAF Fighter Command, and saw action in the European, Mediterranean, Pacific and the South-East Asian theatres. Much loved by its pilots, the Spitfire served in several roles, including interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter-bomber, carrier-based fighter, and trainer. It was built in many variants, using several wing configurations. Edited by Emmy Award winning author and historian Bob Carruthers, this illustrated edition is the definitive single volume overview of the history of the Spitfire.

Boeing in Photographs: A Century of Flight. Bowman. Boeing in Photographs: A Century of Flight. Bowman.

This mighty company evolved from the humble Pacific Aero Products Company, incorporated in Seattle in July 1916 and renamed Boeing Airplane Company in 1917. Boeing’s 100-year history spans decades of rich achievement and technological development, first with the manufacture of sea-planes, then fighters and, from the 1930s onwards, huge bombers, innovative transports and finally, gigantic airliners, missiles, rockets and vehicles for moon exploration. Boeing constantly evolved, setting out to develop an entirely new jet transport, and in 1954 the innovative 707 appeared. The 727 and 737 airliners quickly followed and in 1969 the revolutionary 747. By 1975 the "Jumbo Jet" was being produced in seven different models and new versions continue to be developed to this day.

Home is the Halifax. Robinson. Home is the Halifax. Robinson.

Between 1935 and 1945, Yorkshire became home to 41 military airfields, the majority located in the Vale of York. The area was often referred to as a land-based aircraft carrier. The author, aged 16, became involved in this vast aviation activity when he started work with the Handley Page aircraft manufacturer at their repair depot at Clifton, York, where Halifax bombers used by 4 Group RAF and 6 Group Royal Canadian Air Force, were repaired and test flown. At the age of 17, Ian was selected for flying training at Handley Page's main airfield at Radlett in Hertfordshire, returning to Clifton and becoming flight engineer to the company test pilots. Some 30 or so squadrons operated from these Yorkshire airfields and the Book of Remembrance in York Minster records more than 18,000 names of those killed flying from these Yorkshire bases. Postwar, Ian felt aggrieved that very little was left commemorating these sacrifices and certainly little was left of the Halifax bomber. So when, in 1983, a small group of aviation enthusiasts got together to create a commemorative museum at Elvington, near York, Ian was eager to join them. He became a pivotal player in forming the charity which became the Yorkshire Air Museum and Allied Air Forces Memorial. Ian said at the time that such a museum without a Halifax would be like a frame without a picture - and so the idea to re-build a WWII Halifax was born. Starting with a derelict fuselage which had been used as a hen-coop on a farm on the Isle of Lewis, he set about gathering all the hundreds of bits needed to complete this mammoth task. This fascinating book, full of contemporary photos, is Ian's account of those 13 extraordinary years before Friday the 13th was rolled out on Friday, 13th September, 1996, and it also faithfully records Ian's part in building the Yorkshire Air Museum, one of the foremost museums of its kind in the world.

Phantom, Hornet and Skyhawk in Australian Service. Wilson. Phantom, Hornet and Skyhawk in Australian Service. Wilson.

Recounting the exploits and achievements of three of Australia's most important fighter/attack aircraft of the postwar era. The Phantom is an extraordinary aircraft which was developed for the US Navy as a shipboard fighter but was so good it was also purchased by the US Air Force in very large numbers. Vietnam was the Phantom's war, its versatility coming to the fore and its success complete. The Hornet was subsequently turned into a naval fighter with McDonnell Douglas taking over prime responsibility for the program. In the book, the background to the Hornet is examined, as is its evaluation and selection by the RAAF, the all important local industry involvement in the manufacturing program and of course its service. The simple, small and light Skyhawk enjoyed a production life of a quarter of a century and is still in front line service with several nations around the world.
