If you have any interest in RAF Elint this is a well-researched, superb, informative book. I served in the RAF at the end of the cold war period, and for the years of the 2 Gulf wars, Balkan conflict and Afghanistan. I was well aware of the existence of the Nimrod R1 aircraft of 51 Sqn, and was fascinated and tantalised by their clandestine role. This was in fact my main reason for buying this book.

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.

In my opinion the book was wrongly mamed it was About the aircraft of Elint and not the story of Intel gathering,A good Reference book for Aircraft enthusiats but not really of interest to Intel gatherers

A well researched and well written book on a very niche area of interest. It does cover, in depth just that one area of RAF operations, and I learned a lot about the subject. Well recommended.

Excellent book light on Nimrod R1 but it was secret. Good background on RAF ELINT aircraft.

A good read if you're interested in this sort of thing. It gives an interesting take on the selection of the comet airframe for use in the Nimrod project. I'd always thought that the VC10 would have been the better choice.

For anyone interested in Electronic Intelligence Gathering this book is a must. Filled with photos of the equipment and aircraft used since 1945.

Very well researched and scholarly. The book provides a lot of new information not previously available outside the select few who worked on the various projects down the years.
