I've been buying a lot of these Haynes "Owner's Workshop Manual" recently. They are an excellent reference item when building model kits and easy to read as a stand alone book. They follow a standard format- history, variants, Use and Maintenance. The books are usually written by former user/experts and are always very informative. Also, the quality of photos and illustrations are second to none, often showing the unseen/hard to get to areas. Haynes are onto a winner with these, as they are an excellent addition to a reference library.

I almost passed this over, since the cover suggests a rather dry and geeky manual. Instead, this is richly illustrated account of all aspects of Typhoon operation in the RAF. Obviously being a current type, a lot of detailed technical information is not publicly available, hence nerds and spotters who get off on wiring diagrams and tables of figures might be a little disappointed.

This volume is a fantastic and informative addition to the series.
The photographs are superb and will be of interest to both enthusiasts and modellers.
The text covers the full spectrum from the development through to the RAF service entry and operational use.
There is also a fascinating insight into the maintenance procedures required to keep this remarkable aircraft serviceable and plenty of aircrew insights into flying Typhoon in RAF service.

Having read other reviews saying that this book in the series from Haynes was not as technical and more pictorial than other editions I wasn't put off as being a modeller I wanted the book for this reason.I wasn't disappointed as the photographs are good and it was a good read ,well pleased.

Great Book, Full of detailed information, but obviously no information on certain restricted elements which is understandable. Great Photo's, Diagrams and drawings. Lots of detail and a great read.

Many of the titles in the Haynes series are illuminating, with good photographic coverage of systems and structure. Unfortunately, as is commonplace with studies of extant aircraft types, it's largely a love letter to the subject. Worth a read, but not as good as some other books in the series.

expected this to be a detailed technical guide after seeing the cut-away on the cover , like the B-52 in the series - but was majorly disappointed as it has mostly a bunch of good colour photos - the only techincal drawings of any depth are on the engines and ejection seats - the rest are supercial info which can be gleaned from any similar book or magazine

haynes had set a high quality of technical expectation - sadly this work is very premature as most of the details seem to be classified

Avoid it >>>
