As always this is an invaluable reference tool for those photographing or spotting military aircraft in the UK (I use it extensively for referencing aircraft I photograph low level in the mountains). This book is extremely comprehensive and very user-friendly.

Although current at the time of going to press, including references to last October's SDSR (Strategic Defence and Security Review), aircraft such as the Harrier, Tornado F3 and Dominie are still listed although both types have been prematurely retired from service and are unlikely to fly again. Indeed, the Dominies, being so old as well, will probably not be seen even on the ground as they are likely to be sold for scrap. With these retirements and the reduction in the Tornado GR4 fleet the next edition - 2012 - will be a much thinner book than previously...!

Highly recommended reference book.

Once again Howard J Curtis has produced an excellent updated version of that perennial favourite, Military Aircraft Markings, and managed to squeeze in more valuable listings for military aircraft enthusiasts with the inclusion of French Army helicopters. Despite the numerous aviation databases available on the web today, MAM 2011 is excellent value and a must for inclusion in the camera bag when heading out to `spot' military aircraft. Leaving the `spotting' to one side, MAM makes fascinating reading in itself, giving details of where particular airframes have moved from base to base, had their codes changed or been acquired by museums or gone into civilian ownership. It is also a useful cross-reference when comparing it to previous editions. Sadly the result of the Strategic Defence and Security Review from last autumn makes a hit when you see the list of Harriers withdrawn from use, plus other aircraft going out of service at the end of their natural lives but that is now a sign of the times, but on the plus side there are aircraft coming into service. So, if you are in any way interested in military aircraft then this book must be in your collection. I'm already waiting to see what HJC will be able to squeeze in next year.

A timeless format, alas the proper illustrations have give way to photo copies , but that is progress I guess
A handy reference guide, covers all RAF , RN, AAC Aircraft all USAF and european based US Army Navy & Coastguard Aircraft, , also most of the regular `foreign` visiting military aircraft to the UK

The handy size makes it easy enough to keep in the `Spotting Jacket

Highly recommended
