useful & fun !!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Supermarine Spitfire: Owners' Workshop Manual (An Insight into Owning, Restoring, Servicing and Flying Britain's Legendary World War 2 Fighter) (Hardcover)
Although not an exhaustive technical chronology of this iconic plane this book is a very revealing perspective from various angles. Especially appealing to the non expert it exposes information that would normally be difficult to aquire.
Particularly interesting are the practical issues of flying the Spit today , respect is due to those with the wallet & fortitude to provide the vast majority with the joy of watching it in action !!
Refreshing and worth it's place on the bookshelf.

Very young children might find it a little beyond their comprehension as it does have alot of technical detail and it isn't full of pictures of the full size aircraft. Thinking of myself back when I was a young lad it would have fascinated me from about 7 or 8 or so.
