Book Description

This book is about the tactical reconnaissance mark of the Hunter FR10 and its front line operation between 1961-70. With the Hunter already well proven in ground attack role this variant was an ideal platform for the excellent Vinten F95 strip aperture cameras. The heavy armament of four 30-mm Aden cannon was retained for use in defence suppression and target marking, unilateral action against high value targets (assigned or opportunity) and if necessary in self-defence. It follows that the pilots selected for this demanding operating regime had to show an ability to operate alone over long distances using basic pilot navigation techniques only at high speeds and ultra low levels; in the main, therefore, they were second or third tour fast jet pilots.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Future Classic Hunter Book 12 Jan. 2007
By David J. Griffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This has to be one of the best books I have read on the Hunter and is specific to a unique mark of the aircraft. The book not only gives an insight into the life and times of a Fighter-Reconnaissance pilot but also into the lives of the most essential element, the ground-crew who kept them in the air. ('If aircraft were difficult to fly, the Engineers would be flying them'). It is a fascinating history of this absolutely classic aircraft and one that will probably not gather too much dust on the bookshelf; being referred to and re-read many times over. I have read it three times already and found something new each time. This is a highly recommended book from an eloquent and uniquely knowledgable author.
