Format: Paperback
You may be sat looking at this and thinking that this book will be very technical and that it won't be a very good read, however, i can tell you that it is. Yes there is a little background to the plane, but that was to be expected. However, when it comes to the actual crash, the detail the book goes into, it seems as if you are actually in the plane experiencing the same, it really paints a picture of what our RAF crews have gone through over the past decade. Another good point about the book is that it does cover German air crashes, i know we were fighting them, however, their crews do still need to be remembered. Overall, a very good read, and well worth it. As usual i expect the amazon delivery will be prompt, as it always is.

Format: Paperback
By far the best book on air crashes in Northumberland, a region often overlooked by researchers on this subject matter. The stories are well laid out and packed full of information. I particularly like the format, which is consistent throughout, first providing a small narrative on the aircraft type, then details of the crash and crew followed by the authors description of the crash site and remaining wreckage.

Map references are provided for all but a couple of the crash sites, one not included is the F-104 Starfighter in an MoD firing range which is understandable but a shame as it appears that the entire aircraft is still on site.

A couple of the stories fall just outside of Northumberland, those being the Spitfire near Blanchland and Vulcan near Wingate which are both in County Durham.

Overall a well researched book and a great addition to my collection.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Despite the very negative-sounding title, this book is uplifting in spirit as the investigators went to great lengths to research each crash, its history and of course a site visit. It's archaeology of a sort, but each crash is presented as a story, most of them fairly short but one or two, such as the outstanding story of a Vulcan bomber that caught fire, are pretty gripping. A good read if you like history, planes and the northeast and in no way a nerdy read, the people who write it are very interested in the human side of these stories. I'd like to look for others in this series, if there are any.
