This highly anticipated special from the publishers of FlyPast and Aeroplane magazines celebrates the 80th anniversary of the first flight of the Hawker Tempest, the RAF fighter that became famous in the battle against the V1 'buzz bombs' during the summer of 1944.
Beginning life as the 'Typhoon II' to correct problems in the design of that aircraft, it became the RAF's fastest piston-engine fighter; from its first shoot-down of a V1 in June 1944 to the last victory against the Luftwaffe over Germany 11 months later, Hawker's Tempest demonstrated its superiority against all comers. This brand-new publication celebrates the Tempest, its actions, and its heroic pilots.
