Product Description
ISBN-13: 978-0752452005 David Watkins The definitive history of this powerful ground attack plane While it is true to say that the Venom carried out more operational ground attack sorties than any other RAF aircraft since the Second World War, its history has hitherto been sadly neglected or misreported. With the co-operation and assistance of many former Service and civilian pilots, the record can finally be set straight in what is the definitive history of this ground-attack, all weather and naval strike fighter. David Watkins discusses the problems of the trials and development programme and takes a detailed look at the aircrafts operational service with the air arms of Australia, France and Venezuela. Of particular interest is new information relating to the Sea Venoms careers with the Fleet Air Arm and the catastrophic wing failures and engine fires that plagued the early Second Tactical Air Force Venoms. It also contains a comprehensive account of Venom sorties during the Suez campaign, the 'Firedog' operations in Malaya and the protracted anti-terrorist offensive in Aden and Oman. Accompanying the text is a wealth of photographs, line drawings and maps, a number of which are from private collections and are previously unpublished.
