Description

FOREWORD
What is a bomber ? That may seem a silly question. Obviously, a bomber is an aeroplane designed to drop bombs on an enemy in wartime, like the Avro Vulcan and Handley Page Victor, or the American B - 52 Stratofortress and Russian Tupolev Tu - 16.
Unfortunately, if we accepted such a simple definition, this book would have to include many of the aeroplanes which already appear in the Hippo Book of Fighter Aircraft of the World, as most fighters can carry bombs for ground attack duties.
Even when we omit aircraft which are primarily fighters and are described in the Fighter Hippo, there are still no fewer than 55 major types to be described and illustrated. As well as straightforward strategic and tactical bombers, they include maritime reconnaissance and anti - submarine aircraft - landplanes, flying - boats and helicopters - and machines designed for close support of ground forces.

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.
