    'RAF Centenary Celebration - Patrollers and Airlifters' - OUT NOW!



    The third and final instalment in FlyPast’s RAF Centenary Celebration series, following Fighters and Bombers, Patrollers and Airlifters, focuses on the more unsung heroes involved in the nonetheless vital roles of transport and maritime overwatch. While fighters and bombers have taken the fight to the enemy, airlifters and patrollers have respectively maintained supply lines and guarded Britain’s coastline. This 100-page special explores the wide range of aircraft employed in both tasks over the RAF’s lifespan, from 1917 to the present day. More than 40 types are described, via informative text that covers development, weapons, bases and specifications. Quality artwork also shows the varying colour schemes.

    Hawker Siddeley Nimrod
    Known as ‘The Mighty Hunter’, the Nimrod became as adept at search and rescue as it did hunting Soviet submarines. The type patrolled Britain’s coastlines For more than 40 years, but was also converted into a useful electronic intelligence tool.
