9781580071222: Northrop's Night Hunter: P-61 Black Widow

World War II changed the face of warfare forever. Now enemies were fighting and flying all night, which mandated that a fighter be developed that could carry a new technological invention aloft radar. Guided by ground stations toward the target, the P-61 would acquire an enemy aircraft with its on-board radar and close for the kill.

Northrop's Night Hunter covers the development history of the P-61 Black Widow and the radar built specifically for its use. The P-61 was the most successful Allied night fighter of the war, and flew combat in the China-Burma-India, European, and Pacific theaters of the war. This book details the aircraft's offensive and defensive systems, its operations, and covers its unique uses from missile testing to flights by the U.S. Navy.

Review :

All of this makes for a superb book that is both interesting to read and an excellent reference. A book that I know you will enjoy. ---Modeling Madness, reviewed by Scott Van Aken, November 2008

I consider this to be the definitive work on the Black Widow for a number of reasons. I highly recommend this book to modelers wanting to build a version of this amazing aircraft, WWII aviation enthusiasts, or anyone wanting to know more about a successful aircraft program. - --IPMS, reviewed by Doug Hamilton, January 2009
