Japanese Aircraft 1910-41 by Robert C. Mikesh & Shorzoe Abe (£51.00)Publisher: London: Putnam Aeronautical Books — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851778402]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges with a few small indentations toward the top of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “Japanese Aircraft 1910-1941 will almost certainly come to be regarded as one of the truly outstanding works of aviation history. In the preface the authors state ‘For the vast number of Japanese aeroplane types that were built during the period covered by this book, it is disappointing that more has not been written in English about them’.

As a result of massive research the authors have now corrected this shortcoming. The names Kawasaki, Mitsubishi, Nakajima and a few others are well known but this work includes descriptions of the products of large numbers of companies and organisations that are known only to a few people outside of Japan.

The aeroplanes covered here range from the single type produced by the Awazu Flight Research Studio, include as would be expected the proliferation of Aichis, Kawanishis, Kawasakis, Mitsubishis and Nakajimas, and ends in alphabetical order with the products from the Naval Air Arsenal at Yokosuka.

Including early privately-built aeroplanes and those produced under licence, this work covers nearly 400 types. Appendices include aircraft of the Pacific war, a comparison of calendars, a bibliography and a glossary.”

History of the Polish Air Force, 1918-68 by Jerzy B. Cynk (£41.00)Publisher: Reading: Osprey Publishing — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 085045039X]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper lightly sunned at the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “This detailed account of the Polish Air Force — its birth in revolution, its brief but heroic period as the air arm of an independent nation, and its present status as one of the principal weapons in the armoury of the Soviet bloc — fills a serious gap in published aviation history. It is the first complete coverage of the subject to appear anywhere in the world.

The survey is divided into six parts: the birth of the Polish Air Force, up to 1918; the P. A. F’. s part in the fight for Poland’s independence, 1918-20; the inter-war developments, 1921-39; the air war over Poland, September 1939; the P. A. F. contribution to the Allied cause in France and Britain, 1940-45; and the P. A. F. of the Polish People’s Republic, 1943 to the present. In addition extensive appendices list data on aircraft supplies and equipment strength, operational records, commanders, bases, and losses and air victories in the two world wars. 250 photographs provide a unique record, and are of special interest to students of the early years of European aircraft.

Based on much information new to the West, exhaustively documented, and written with admirable objectivity, it amounts to more than a history of an air force. The author has taken such trouble to explain the historical, social and economic background that it becomes an important contribution to the history of Poland itself, and a commentary on the socio-political problems of air technology which are just as applicable today.”

The Crowded Sky: An Anthology of Flight from the Beginnings to the Age of the Guided Missile by Edited by Neville Duke & Edward Lanchbery (£34.00)Publisher: London: Cassell & Co. Ltd. — 1959Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a small tape repair at the foot of the lower panel to the join and further closed tears at the spine ends. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned with spotting to the blanks. Description: From the cover: “Man’s longing to fly is as old as history. The wish to escape from the earth and soar with the birds recurs in Biblical verse and ancient legend, but it was Leonardo da Vinci who first considered the practical problems involved. From da Vinci to Colonel Frank Everest, Jr. , ‘the fastest man alive’, who in 1956 flew the Bell X-2 rocket plane at nearly two thousand miles an hour, this anthology of prose and poetry takes in its stride every conceivable branch of aviation, including the first faltering experiments, and the heyday of the balloon and the airship (there is an absorbing description taken from Nevil Shute’s autobiography of the testing of the R. 100, whose sister ship the R. 101 went to her doom so soon afterwards). Beside Bleriot’s exciting story are con-temporary newspaper accounts of Britain’s first air meetings and early flying clubs, and all else which has gone to make up the panorama of aviation through the ages. The First World War brought the greatest single challenge to the improvement of the aeroplane, and is seen here from the points of view of both Allied and German air aces. But flying was still in its infancy, at a time when the officer in command of the aeroplane gave the signal to descend by means of a smack on his pilot’s helmet! From the first World War to the second, with its roll of immortal names, among them Guy Gibson, Pierre Clostermann and Cheshire, V. C.; and finally to peace and the age of jet aircraft. In a section entitled Wings of Peace the editors show that to some, flying is an escape from the cares of the earth and a retreat that gives spiritual solace. So we come up-to-date with today’s test pilot, exploring new regions of speed and altitude, and developing test flying into a skilled and complicated science.

Here is a book to be dipped into again and again for its tales of high adventure, of the incredible audacity of men battling against the eternal forces of nature, and of the progress of aviation from its humble beginnings to its present vast complexity.”

British Research and Development Aircraft: Seventy Years At the Leading Edge by Ray Sturtivant (£24.00)Publisher: Haynes — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0854296972]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Every advance that has ever occurred in aviation has been the result of a new problem encountered and then solved. From the very earliest days Britain was in the forefront of progress by empirical means, and by 1917 it was already becoming the practice to build special aircraft for trials purposes to test some theory or line of research without necessarily any intention of placing those machines in production. Very soon this arrangement was formalized by the issuing of Government contacts to an Air Ministry specification.

The aircraft and designs encompassed within this system embrace most of the more important aspects of British aeronautical progress, and in this book Ray Sturtivant charts the history of such developments over a period spanning some seven decades.

The twenty years leading up to the Second World War saw research into every aspect of aeronautical theory, with projects gaining official sponsorship on a numerical scale which would be quite impracticable today. Early projects included investigations into the understanding of control in slow speed flight and the elimination of the dreaded ‘spin’ which had claimed the lives of so many pilots of the RFC and RAF.

These were the years of such aircraft as the Westland-Hill Pterodactyl which investigated the properties of swept wings, the knowledge gained being put to good use many years later in — amongst other developments — the Avro Vulcan bomber. Likewise the pre-war development of rotor-craft in the form of the Cierva and Hafner autogiros paved the way first to the helicopter and then latterly to the tilt-rotor aircraft of today.

Post-war, after enormous strides made as the result of the conflict, there were problems to solve afresh as the result of the adoption of the jet engine and the related increases in speed and height that became attainable. Similarly the jet engine provided the impetus to the many projects avidly seeking the solution to the Vertical Take-off and Landing conundrum unravelled so brilliantly in the Hawker Harrier.

Ray Sturtivant’s deeply researched text is accompanied by photographs or line drawings of almost every one of the numerous aircraft covered. These images — from the oddest to the sublimely beautiful — in themselves provide a fascinating chronology of seventy years at the leading edge of aviation technology which is now taking Britain into the 21st century.”

The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents by David Beaty (£19.00)Publisher: London: The Scientific Book Club — 1969Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Bruised at the tail of the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned with heavier offset to the endpapers. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [2]; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Although considerable progress has been made in increasing the reliability of airplanes, very little has been accomplished in reducing the element of human error in aircraft accidents.

So said the first International Civil Aviation Organisation’s first volume of accident reports seventeen years ago. But in the interim the view that human error accidents are inevitable has prevailed. It is this view that David Beaty attacks in The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents. Investigating into an almost totally unexplored area, he has related aircraft accidents to known psychological concepts of fatigue, perception, laterality, conflict, frustration, learning and decision-taking.

This book takes a cool scientific look at the whole problem. Not at all sensational, but none the less of exciting interest, it tells the stories of aircraft accidents and interprets them in psychological terms. And at the same time, it suggests the prospect that, if psychological factors were properly investigated and better understood, a considerable cut would be effected in the now, rising aircraft accident rate.”

Somewhere in the West Country: The History of Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport 1930-1957 by Kenneth Wakefield (£14.00)Publisher: Crécy Publishing — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0947554653]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “During the Second World War Bristol’s Whitchurch Airport became Britain’s main air gateway to the free world. Service chiefs, foreign and British diplomats, Prisoner-of-War mail ( via neutral countries), and much else, passed through the airport, as did many important people. Among the latter, to name but two, were Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of the President of the USA, and Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands. Other famous personalities passing through included film stars Bob Hope, Edward G Robinson and Bing Crosby, in Britain to entertain American forces. But security in wartime was paramount and Whitchurch Airport was never mentioned by name. Instead, news reports about the arrival or departure of celebrities referred only to an airport somewhere in the West Country . This is the book of that airport.

Although a history of Whitchurch, other aspects of aviation in the West Country are covered, including the pre-war expansion of civil and military flying. But much of the book is about the important part played by Whitchurch in wartime, when it was occupied by British Overseas Airways Corporation, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the Air Transport Auxiliary and the Bristol Aeroplane Company. It concludes with an account of the difficult early post-war period and the events which led to the airport’s closure in 1957. This is a comprehensive history of one of Britain’s most important early airports and covers a period, seen by many, as the Golden Age of British civil aviation.”

Contest for the Heavens by Claus Jensen (£13.00)Publisher: The Harvill Press — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1860462162]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “In January 1986 the space shuttle Challenger, the latest and most sophisticated addition to a programme of space exploration refined over forty years since the development of the German V-2 rockets, blasted off from Kennedy Space Center only to explode 73 seconds into its flight. The bodies of the seven astronauts, two of them women, were later pulled up off the floor of the Atlantic. This many years into the programme, some thirty years after the Russians put a satellite into orbit, popular opinion accepted that American technological know-how had identified and mastered every key problem in putting hardware and humans into space, and riding a space shuttle was about as safe as getting on a bus. It was the Challenger disaster that prompted the big rethink. What the Presidential Commission of Inquiry discovered is that there is more to space technology than physics and mathematics: there is politics, public relations, finance, and a host of conflicting interests to reconcile. This investigation is about O-rings and tolerances, but it is chiefly about the people, the technologists, astronauts, industrialists and politicians who combined to send up the space rockets.”

Air Defence of Great Britain by John Bushby (£11.50)Publisher: Shepperton: Ian Allan Ltd — 1973Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Maps; Exploded drawings; Appendices [2];

From the cover: “With the problem of defending the United Kingdom against attack by manned bombers again exercising the planners in Whitehall, this book is a timely reminder of the relevant experience of the past. Air defence equipments change but principles do not whether the threat comes from the Zeppelin, the Gotha, the Heinkel, the flying-bomb or the latest Soviet swing-wing bomber.

Much new and hitherto security cloaked material is published for the first time including an inside account of how the British national defence system has developed since the last war. There is a graphic account of how our modern supersonic fighters intercept intruders.

John R. Bushby, author of Gunner’s Moon, has brought to Air Defence of Great Britain an intimate professional knowledge of the subject gained from many years as a regular officer of the Royal Air Force. Specialising in air defence and fighter control duties he conducted the first interception of a Soviet Bison probe into British air space in 1965. The result is a unique history of a fascinating aspect of air operations vital to national survival.

The book is enhanced with 16 pages of halftone illustrations.”

Small sticker to the first blank. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “It is a sobering thought that, around the world, over 1,000 million passengers are boarding scheduled airline flights every year and the figure is constantly increasing. Added to this are millions of charter passengers as well as others on private or business flights and all of these have one thing in common — they will begin and end their flight at an airport. Those with an interest in aviation affairs will inevitably concentrate their attention on the aircraft themselves, perhaps the most exciting machines ever invented by man, but from the very earliest days aviators have always been dependant on support from the ground. Of course, their original demands were few, any reasonably flat area would do for taking-off and landing and a few gallons of fuel could be easily carried in cans. However, early aircraft were fragile and at the mercy of the elements and so some sort of weatherproof shelter soon became a necessity. As aircraft got larger and heavier, they needed longer take-off and landing runs and so aerodromes became larger, although still very small by modern standards.

Since the early years technical improvements in aircraft design have forced airport authorities to provide better facilities such as longer runways, larger terminals, radar, runway and approach lighting, and instrument landing systems.

This book attempts, through the medium of photographs, to show some of the history of our airports and how they have grown and developed over the years. While all the major airports have been covered in varying detail, an effort has been made to include a large cross section of the many smaller or less busy airfields which, nevertheless, play an important part in the communities they serve. As far as possible aerial photographs have been used as these best show the airfield layout and are useful for comparative purposes.”

The Grub Street Dictionary of International Aircraft Nicknames, Variants and Colloquial Terms by John Horton (£11.50)Publisher: Grub Street — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0948817755]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper.Description: From the flap: “John Horton has compiled a comprehensive A-Z of aircraft names which is as rich and fascinating as the history of aviation itself. His book, the first of its kind on the market, explores evocative names such as the Seven Day Bus, the Supermarine PB9 built in a week and the Aardvark, which refers to the General Dynamics F-III and its modus operandi, rather than its appearance as a great long nose grubbing the dirt. The subculture of informal and colloquial names has remained as vigorous and inventive throughout the century and Horton covers models from World War 1 to Vietnam. Such names not only tend to be humorous and anecdotal in nature, but also reveal the more interesting characteristics of the aircraft concerned.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 6".

Aviation Record Breakers by Christopher Chant (£10.50)Publisher: Apple Press — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1850761213]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper and onto the margins of the panels. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper with a small nick to the bottom corner of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Powered flight is now some 85 years old; during that period, the struggle for mastery of the air has constantly been in the forefront of human technological achievement. The early aircraft were little more than playthings in which, admittedly, some remarkable feats were performed: today’s aircraft, both civil and military, are extraordinarily reliable machines capable of carrying large loads, of flying at high speed, or of travelling enormous distances, and often a combination of all three. Yet there is still a close relationship between the original aircraft and today’s phenomenal machines.

The transformation has been gradual, but within it there stand out a number of crucial innovations: the reliable piston engine, metal stressed-skin construction, retractable landing gear, proper flight instrumentation, the enclosed cockpit, landing- and trailing-edge high-lift devices, pressurization, the turbocharger, the turbojet engine, the turbofan engine, better understanding of aerodynamics, and in recent years a host of avionic and structural developments that have made today’s aircraft safer than their predecessors as well as more economical to fly. Yet this is not a subject for arid technical treatment, but one in which people’s insights and intuitions have played as important a part as pure scientific or technological expertise. And even in today’s climate of computer-aided design and manufacture, there are still individuals who are pushing back the frontiers of aircraft design.

AVIATION RECORDBREAKERS is an introduction to those individuals and to their successes. With full technical data and a wealth of superb full-colour illustrations, the biggest, the smallest, the highest, the stealthiest, and of course the fastest, civil and military aircraft — and the technical breakthroughs they represent — are examined; an exciting and informative analysis of one of Man’s most remarkable endeavours.”

Eject! Eject! by Edited by Bryan Philpott (£10.50)Publisher: London: Ian Allan — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711018049]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Top edge of the text block spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Diagrams; Cutaways;

From the cover: “As characteristic of the jet age as the sonic boom, the ejection seat has saved thousands from certain death since German test pilot Schenk became the first to owe his life to such a device in 1942. The story of the ejection seat began as early as 1930 when Flg Off A. M. Dudgeon of No 208 Squadron saw that increasing airspeeds required some form of assisted escape system. The difficulties experienced by aircrew during World War 2 in leaving their aircraft against the airstream or under ‘g’ conditions in emergencies, was the spur to extensive research in Britain, Germany, Sweden and the USA, which eventually led to the familiar red warning triangle (indicating that an ejection seat is fitted) appearing on most military jet aircraft.

This book is divided into two parts: in the first, Bryan Philpott outlines the international development and deployment of the ejection seat, from the earliest proposals to the fully automatic seats of today. The second half of the book contains a number of chapters, each of which deals with a particularly significant use of an ejection seat.

The writer vividly describes ejections from a Meteor F8 over North Korea, from the AW52 ‘flying wing’, and from a Harrier GR3 over the Falklands; there is even an underwater ejection.

Illustrated with many rare photographs as well as some unusual drawings, this book will be compulsive reading for anyone with an interest in modern aviation, or the ingenuity with which man can ensure his survival.”

From the cover: “Great advances in the theory of aeronautics have taken place since the first edition appeared (1926), but the more fundamental parts of the theory, which are the subject of this book, remain unchanged. Particularly important advances have been made in the theory of viscous motion and of the flow of the boundary layer. Mr H. B. Squire, of the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, who was a colleague of the late author, has prepared an Appendix, indicating where important developments have taken place and where further information can be found.

The opportunity has also been taken to replace the non-dimensional k coefficients by the now more generally accepted C coefficients. One or two other minor changes have been made, and a select bibliography has been added.”

From the cover: “With the problem of defending the United Kingdom against attack by manned bombers again exercising the planners in Whitehall, this book is a timely reminder of the relevant experience of the past. Air defence equipments change but principles do not whether the threat comes from the Zeppelin, the Gotha, the Heinkel, the flying-bomb or the latest Soviet swing-wing bomber.

Much new and hitherto security cloaked material is published for the first time including an inside account of how the British national defence system has developed since the last war. There is a graphic account of how our modern supersonic fighters intercept intruders.

John R. Bushby, author of Gunner’s Moon, has brought to Air Defence of Great Britain an intimate professional knowledge of the subject gained from many years as a regular officer of the Royal Air Force. Specialising in air defence and fighter control duties he conducted the first interception of a Soviet Bison probe into British air space in 1965. The result is a unique history of a fascinating aspect of air operations vital to national survival.

The book is enhanced with 16 pages of halftone illustrations.”

An Ancient Air: A Biography of John Stringfellow of Chard, the Victorian Aeronautical Pioneer by Harald Penrose (£9.50)Publisher: Airlife — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781840371840]Condition: Near Fine.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “An Ancient Air portrays the hitherto only briefly recorded life of John Stringfellow of Chard (1799-1883), the first man in the world to demonstrate that engine-powered winged flight was practicable.

Whereas earlier general aviation histories tend to discount Stringfellow’s work, An Ancient Air reveals that his absorption with aviation was lifelong, starting with the construction of balloons, recorded here for the first time. Though professionally a lace-machine specialist, he was interested in all aspects of scientific development — he was a founder member of the Chard Institution for educational lectures, pioneered local photography, devised medical apparatus and even patented an armoured gun-carriage.

This book seeks to demonstrate the relationship of Stringfellow’s work with that of his colleague, William Samuel Henson. They worked closely together on various aeronautical projects between the years 1835 and 1847, and the author puts forward evidence that it was Stringfellow who was entirely responsible for the historic 1848 monoplane, the first ever engine-driven model aeroplane to make a free flight. After Henson emigrated to the USA in 1848, Stringfellow continued to design revolutionary aeroplane models, such as the triplane he entered in the the 1868 Crystal Palace Exhibition.

In his old age Stringfellow maintained his interest in aviation and passed on his enthusiasm to his son, Frederick John Stringfellow, who later built a model biplane and a multi-plane.

An Ancient Air, meticulously researched by Harald Penrose, an acknowledged authority on aviation history, presents for the first time a detailed account of Stringfellow’s historic discoveries and sheds further welcome light on the pioneering days of aviation.”

Fighter Pilot by Colin Strong; Duff Hart-Davis; (£9.50)Publisher: Queen Anne Press MacDonald & Co. — 1981Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0362005788]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper.Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Only a select few in today’s RAF pass out to fly fast jets — the Tornado, Harrier, Jaguar, Buccaneer, Phantom or Lightning. Flying at up to 950 feet per second, sometimes less than 250 feet above the ground to avoid enemy radar, a fast-jet pilot must possess formidable flying skills. His training must therefore also be formidable — and it is his exacting three-year training schedule that Fighter Pilot follows.

The book is based on the major BBC television series of the same name, which was produced with the wholehearted co-operation of the RAF. From the first day — when hopeful candidates reported to the Officers and Aircrew Selection Centre at Biggin Hill — the BBC cameras followed one ever-diminishing band of student-pilots through Officer Cadet Training at Henlow; Basic Flying Training at Linton-on-Ouse; Advanced Flying Training at Valley; the Tactical Weapons Unit at Brawdy; and the Buccaneer Operational Conversion Unit at Honington, to life at the sharp end with an operational squadron in West Germany. Of the thirty-four young hopefuls, only one reached the end of the fast-jet stream — at a cost of over a million pounds to the taxpayer. Fighter Pilot is a portrait of million-pound pilots in the making.”
