Description

AIRCRAFT WITH BOTH CIVIL AND MILITARY MARKINGS

 

A number of British aircraft which have at one time carried civil registrations are now preserved in either flying or non - flying condition in Service markings. In some examples, the markings are those originally applied to the particular aircraft ; in others, the aircraft have been restored to represent a typical period in the life of the type in question, but the serial number now carried is not that of the original airframe. As many as possible of the aircraft in this category, including a number of the exhibits at the Shuttleworth Trust and the embryo R.A.F. Museum, have been included again in proper registration sequence in this volume. ( ... )

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
J.W.R. Taylor

John William Ransom Taylor O.B.E., Hon. D.Eng., F.R.Ae.S., F.R.Hist.S., A.F.I.A.A. ( June 8th, 1922 - December 12th, 1999 ) was educated at Ely Cathedral Choir School ( King's School, Ely ) and Soham Grammar School ( both in Cambridgeshire, England ). 


He trained as a draughtsman and joined Hawker Aircraft in 1941. There he worked on the development of the Hurricane fighter and its successors. His specialisation was rectifying design defects. 


He joined Jane's as editorial assistant on Jane's All the World's Aircraft in 1955 and four years later he took over as editor. Until the late 1960's he edited this volume with virtually no editorial support but his love of aviation was such that this was a challenge he enjoyed. 


He retired as editor in 1989, just as the Iron Curtain obscuring the Soviet Bloc's technology started to lift. John W.R. Taylor, who lived to the age of 77, was a master of a parallel art to Kremlinology, he could deduce the performance of Soviet military equipment from blurred photographs.
