Format: Hardcover
Thank you for the kind reviews - Its actually very hard to try and produce a book that fits everyones tastes - The book is of course aimed at a big audience - Teenagers who want to join the RAF as Aircrew or Engineers or other trades as well as enthusiasts who like the detail shots for modelling and of course people who were involved with the Aircraft in service so its a struggle to keep a balance - I wish i had more of an engineers background but sadly fixing my Motorbike is about it ! - Im going to try a slightly different approach to the Lightning manual - more how it works- as its been covered by many books in terms of history - If you like pure photographic books check out www.firestreakbooks.com which are my own work and aimed at bespoke coffee table books. Appreciate the feedback as the books are done not for my benefit but the people who love the aircraft - Thanks Ian

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By N. BARTLETT on 10 Nov. 2014
Format: Hardcover
The main part of this Haynes Workshop Manual is penned by a Tornado pilot and unabashed devotee of the aircraft. There’s nothing wrong with that but his almost boyish enthusiasm so carries him away that some fairly basic points about the aircraft have been forgotten. In the rush to enthuse, concern for the reader’s comprehension is also sometimes neglected. On page 23, for example, I found a 66-word sentence.
I puzzled through many pages trying to link ADV and IDS with the RAF marks of GR1, F2, F3 and GR4. I had to wait until the appendix at the end of the book. There is no definition of IDS that I could find. This is really the main irritation – extensive use of abbreviations (which is customary in the military) but without any consistent treatment of them: some are explained, some not.
There is a good background chapter on the origins and development of the Tornado tracing its Multirole Combat Aircraft (MRCA) and TSR2 roots. I spotted one error of fact: the Italian Communist Party was never in power in the 1970s. The main thread is sound, describing the development of the aircraft particularly the importance of the Tri-national Tornado Training Establishment (TTTE) at RAF Cottesmore. More detail follows in the next chapter where the development of the different variants is described. However this is not really an account of the variants of the whole Tornado family but primarily how the GR1 evolved by a series of steps to the GR4A. There is less on how the F3 came about and nothing at all on the earlier F2 mark. As this book is only about RAF experience, there is nothing about the ECR variant employed by the Germans and Italians.
There is a full chapter on the deployment of Tornadoes in war: Gulf Wars 1 and 2, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Libya.

Format: Hardcover
Picked up one of the first copies to be released - Ian Black being a pilot who flew the Tornado in the Gulf war and an excellent aviation photographer is best qualified to write about the same.

The book follows the established layout of the Haynes series - A potted history of the MRCA & rationale , description of the Tornado ADV etc variants , Anatomy & technical descriptions , At war , the various weapon configurations ,RB 199 engine description , a brief chapter on flying the Tornado and an even briefer last chapter (could have been more detailed) on the maintenance - the Tornado was a formidable work horse and adapted new technology and this is a fine tribute to the same with excellent technical drawings , superb cut away section by Mike Badrocke and nice colour pictures.

Great read on one of the RAF'S most vesatile aircraft. The author's personal experience and knowledge of the TORNADO and the excellent pictures make this book a must have for anyone interested in modern RAF aircraft.

Another great workshop manual from Ian Black, an aircrew member of the Royal Air Force who remembers the contribution the engineers make to the operation of a high tech jet.
