Description

Development and Service :
The Shackleton M.R. ( originally G.R. ) Mk. 1 was developed as the Avro Type 696, a variant of the Lincoln bomber, for maritime reconnaissance duties and was first flown on March 9, 1949. The first Shackleton M.R. Mk. 1 ( 77 built ) entered service with No. 120 Squadron of R.A.F. Coastal Command late in 1951. These aircraft could be distinguished from later versions by their shorter, more rounded nose, with fixed under - nose radome, and blunt rear fuselage. The M.R. Mk. 2 was developed in 1952 with a longer, more streamlined nose, pointed tail - cone and retractable ventral radar. ( ... )

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
John 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.

À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
IAN ALLAN
Ian Allan Publishing was founded by Ian Allan ( 1922 - 2015 ) in 1942. Working then in the Public Relations Department for the Southern Railway at Waterloo Station ( London Borough of Lambeth, London, England ), he decided he could deal with many of the requests he received about rolling stock by collecting the information into a book. The result was his first book : ABC of Southern Locomotives. This proved to be a success, contributing to the emergence of trainspotting as a popular hobby in the United Kingdom, and leading to the formation of the company. Ian Allan Publishing has grown from a small producer of books for train enthusiasts and spotters to a large transport publisher. Each year it publishes books covering subjects such as military and civil aviation, naval and maritime topics, buses, trams, trolleybuses and steam railways, including history, preservation and modern operations. The headquarters is at the western end of Shepperton Railway Station ( Surrey, England ). At the end of 2016, the company announced that they were withdrawing from railway publishing. Crécy Publishing acquired these titles, including the Oxford and abc imprints, but would no longer publish these under the Ian Allan name. ( source : Wikipedia )
