For the first half of its sixty year - life, the R.A.F. was never at peace. Always there was a war somewhere in the world in which its men had to live with the risk of death. Since 1948 it has been called upon to play its part in the victory of the Berlin Airlift, in campaigns in Malaya and Cyprus, in Aden and Korea. It has stood guard constantly on the N.A.T.O. side of the Iron Curtain, watchful and alert. This book is a celebration in pictures of the first sixty years of R.A.F. aircraft, from the frail biplanes of the First World War to the massively complex and efficient fighting machines of today.
