5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book., 18 Jan 2012
By 
This review is from: ENGLISH ELECTRIC/BAC LIGHTNING (Osprey air combat) (Hardcover)
Written when one still could see (and hear) this great fighter. Even today this "rocket" could outclimb a few current hot-rod fighters. With a margin I must add.

The book is sort of a calmly told story of this great fighter. It`s all there. Nations need, idea, prototype, testflying, service and tech. specs. I`m going to keep this short and simple. The book is fantastic reading.

I got a ton of books from the series. A4, A6, A7, F101, F105, Mirage and a few more.

Going to re-read this summer and looking forward to lazy days in the hammock.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT LIGHTNING BOOK, 15 Mar 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: ENGLISH ELECTRIC/BAC LIGHTNING (Osprey air combat) (Hardcover)
This is a very good book and written while the Lightning was in Active Service.
A shame this book is not in print. Why??? I know of a few people trying to buy a new copy. It’s better than other Lightning books that I’ve read that are still in print. It’s a disservice to not just Lightning fans like myself, but also to anyone interested in aircraft. If you can get hold of a copy … DO SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stunning and new photos that made this a very fasinating book. Very well put together and highly recommended for anyone interested in this beautiful aircraft.
Read other military books by this author and he never disappoints. Great photos, great text.
