F-8 & RF-8 Crusader in Detail & Scale (Detail & Scale Series)

F-8 & RF-8 Crusader in Detail & Scale

Detail & Scale produced its first book on the F-8 Crusader in 1988, and it was one of the most successful titles in the Detail & Scale Series.

This is followed by a chapter covering every variant of the Crusader produced for the U. S. Navy and Marines, from the prototypes, all of the F-8A/B/C/D/E variants and their upgraded versions after the remanufacture program, the two-seat TF-8A, both the original and remanufactured versions of the RF-8 photo reconnaissance variant, and the XF8U-3 prototype, often considered...

In fact, the first prototype didn’t fly until 1953, and it could not achieve supersonic flight. It lasted only seven flights before being written off in a crash. The full history of how the design evolved to meet the operatio...

Finally, this chapter covers those aircraft that were not pursued for a variety of reasons after the prototype flew. These aircraft either carried exotic names like Airabonita, Skyrocket, Flying Pancake, Dark Shark, and Stingeree, or they were never given a name, simply being known by their design...

P-47 Thunderbolt Aces of the Eighth Air Force (Osprey Aircraft of the Aces No 24)

P-47 Thunderbolt Aces of the Eighth Air Force

The US aviation industry produced three great fighter designs to equip its burgeoning army air force during World War 2, and of this trio, Republic's P-47 Thunderbolt was easily the heaviest. Powered, crucially, by a turbocharged Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial engine that produced 2000 hp, the first production fighters reached the 56th FG in June 1942, and six months later the group joined the Eight Air Force in Britain. The arrival of the first P-47Cs in mid-1943 addressed the problem of the aircraft's short combat radius, as this model could be fitted with an external tank. Slowly, as combat tactics evolved in units like the 56th and 78th FGs, pilots learnt how best to fly the Thunderbolt in order to effectively counter the more nimble Luftwaffe fighters.

RAF Canberra Units of the Cold War (Combat Aircraft)

RAF Canberra Units of the Cold War (Combat

Throughout the Cold War, this 525mph bomber fulfilled the same role as the Mosquito fighter-bomber in World War II. From its first public demonstration at the Farnborough Air Show of 1949, the English Electric Canberra bomber captured the attention of the aviation world. It could outmaneuver all the fighters of the time and it could climb way above their operating ceilings. Yet this bobmer was simple to maintain and a delight to fly, although it could punish any pilot who did not treat it with respect. The Canberra B 2 first flew on April 21, 1950 and entered frontline service with No 101 Sqn in May 1951. In a testament to the aircraft's benign handling characteristics, the transition program consisted of only 20 hours in the Gloster Meteor and three hours in the dual-control Canberra trainer. With a maximum speed of 470 knots (871 km/h), a standard service ceiling of 48,000 ft (14,600 m) and the ability to carry a 3.6-tonne (7,900-lb) payload, the Canberra was an instant success. Of the 42 RAF Canberra B 2 squadrons, 24 served in Bomber Command, four in Cyprus, one in the Far East and nine on special duties. The next bomber version was the B 6, of which ten squadrons served in Bomber Command, two in Cyprus and one in the Second Allied Tactical Air Force (2nd ATAF). Six B 15/B 16...
