About the Author
In 1978 his interest in aircraft took Chris Gibson into the Royal Observer Corps where he represented his group, area and country in aircraft recognition competitions between 1980 and 1991. On the standing down of the ROC in 1991, Chris began researching historical aviation and has written several books on un-built projects, particularly guided weapons.
Dave Forster has been researching Elint and other intelligence subjects for the last 20 years with particular interest in electronic warfare systems. Dave's interest in avionics and their development have led him to cooperate with a number of authors, with his specialist knowledge of the history and technology of the field making him a valued contributor. This has led him to research many of the more technical and scientific aspects of the RAF history including Elint, radiological sampling and navigation systems.

This book, amongst its many other chapters in the RAF Elint story, sheds some light of the activities of 51 Sqn, its aircraft, and their value (and that of their predecessors) to our military operations and our national security in the Cold War and beyond.
The book is bang up to date with a short section on 51 Sqn's new Air Seeker aircraft which have now replaced the venerable Nimrods, and will ensure that our Elint capabilities remain at the forefront. They truly serve who also watch and listen!
Very highly recommended indeed, with lots of pictures as well as a clear text.
