It delivers what is promised
on 30 May 2009
This is a book about flying the Buccaneer. And very good at it. It contains a lot of details on how to fly and fight with this beast. The chapters covering tactics are very good and pilot recollections are great and VERY entertaining.
It`s a must to those interesting in the Buccaneer or the RN/RAF attack squadrons in the 1960s/70s.
My only criticism is the lack of detail on the technical evolution of the aircraft. Submodels are mentioned often, but for somebody not familiar with the type it would be quite meaningless. electronic equipment, even ejection seats, are mentioned and described, but somebody without a fairly deep knowledge of this particular aircraft could get false impressions or even be confused sometimes (I read a few pages ago about Martin Baker Mk4 seats being fitted, but now I find Mk6s being discussed!)
