Product description

Stemming from a Percival design and produced by Hunting Aircraft at Luton, the Jet Provost has been one of those unsung heroes that have often been neglected in publishing circles, being pushed aside in preference to the more glamorous fighters and bombers. However, a good reliable and long-serving jet trainer such as the JP has been the backbone of RAF and several overseas air arms' jet training for more than thirty years, so cannot be ignored.

Being developed from the earlier Piston Provost, the type's success resulted in large orders from the RAF with whom it saw extensive service from the Mk.1 in the late 1950s through to the final Mk.5 which was developed into a very successful export variant, the Strikemaster.

For the first time, the Jet Provost & Strikemaster story has been related by Adrian Balch and illustrated with many top quality b/w and colour photographs, many never before published. Richard Caruana provides his usual superb colour profile artwork, giving modellers a wide choice of colourful RAF and foreign Jet Provost and Strikemaster schemes to choose from. Detailed walk-round and cockpit photos, combined with scale drawings enhance this fifty-page book. Whether you are an aviation historian, modeller or just an enthusiast, this publication will be a 'must' that fills a gap in previously unpublished aviation history under one cover
