The Design and Development of the Hawker Hunter, The Creation of Britain’s Iconic Jet Fighter

B2037

This is an outstanding account of one of the greatest British jet aircraft. The author has proved very readable text, clearly based on very careful research and direct experience. The publisher has done a first rate job of producing a lavishly illustrated work with a high full colour image content and some rare photographs. Not only has the author produced a fine history of the Hawker Hunter, but he has included related information on contemporary aircraft and on the disappointing Swift jet fighter.
