5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as always, 29 Nov 2011

This review is from: The Victor Story (Story Series) (Hardcover)
Tim McLelland has the knack of getting right into his chosen subject and presenting the facts objectively and readably. The Victor was an excellent aircraft to fly (I only flew early production Mk. 1s) and although outshone in the public mind by the delta from Avro, it did much more than "what was said on the tin".
Mr. McLelland's handily-sized account does the Victor justice and gave this "old Victorian" many things I either had forgotten (it seems to happen a lot these days!) or didn't know in the first place and vividly brought back some special years to my mind. But te book's well worth reading by a much wider group than the nostalgics: Thank you, Mr. McLelland.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice table book, 25 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Victor Story (Story Series) (Hardcover)
Being a fan of Handley Page and the Victor being a significant aircraft, I bought this book on a bit of a whim. It is small (don't be decieved), but well produced. It is not a comprehensive history, but it seems well researched with a good spread of interesting facts and is well laid out with some very good pictures. The book basically does what it sets out to do at a sensible price. If they did develop this into a full size book with the quality of photos and the style of commentary expanded, I'd be tempted by that offering. Only thing stopping this book getting a full 5 stars is there are a handful of errors in the book, such as swapped picture references - good book otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Memories of 12 Years with 'V' Force, 6 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Victor Story (Story Series) (Hardcover)
This a superb book with lots of interesting coloured pictures. There is one error where it states the Valiant aircraft were withdrawn from service in 1954 when it was very late 1964 or possibly January 1965. There are also a couple of Victor K.2 pictures switched with their captions but other than that, a great read. Highly recommended. Happy days.
