From the publisher: This is the first complete reference book to all the aircraft ever flown in regular service by the Naval Wing of the Royal Flying Corps, the Royal Naval Service and the Fleet Air Arm. Produced as a companion volume to Mr. Thetford's Aircraft of the Royal Air Force, 1918-1958, it contains the maximum possible technical data, covering performance, dimensions, armament and weights. In addition to a general narrative tracing the development history of these many types of aeroplanes, details are included of the dates of maiden flights, numbers of each type built, particulars of sub-contractors, lists of Squadrons or Flights equipped with the type, aircraft-carriers with which they have operated and, in most cases, details of serial number allocations. There are over 360 photographs and over 100 three-view drawings. As an illustrated introduction, there is included a useful short history of the development of British naval aviation and the evolution of deck-flying from the earliest tentative experiments to the latest inventions, such as the angled deck, steam catapults and mirror landing-aids. Appendices contains descriptions and illustrations of lighter-than-air aircraft used by the R.N.A.S. between 1914 1and 1919. Tables list the main particulars of all the aircraft-carriers and seaplane-carriers which have ever served with the Royal Navy. N° de réf. du libraire 17137
