Honest and revealing
on 29 May 2014
It's always interesting to hear the opinions of those who were there and did it, and this is a pretty forthright account of our (if you are British) not always glorious past.
The aircraft involved are all reflected upon with honest subjectively, which I prefer.
The faults of government procurement and the foolish decision to farm out our jet technology to the Soviet Union and, indeed, America, reminds us of how a technological lead was tossed aside and the price we paid as an industrial nation.
I enjoyed this book very much
