Product description

The Stirling has come in for a lot of Flak over the years, both literally and metaphorically. Hampered by a poor service ceiling and a Dastardly and Muttley style undercarriage, it has always lived in the shadow of the more illustrious Lancaster and Halifax. However, most crews that flew the Stirling were very fond of the aircraft and although its capabilities as a bomber were never as strong as its contemporaries, it blossomed into an extremely useful glider tug and Special Duties aircraft towards the end of the war. This aspect will be covered in our second book on the aircraft.
As usual in this series, we devote most of the space to high-res original wartime photos, which we examine very closely to pick out details that have been hiding in plain sight for over 70 years."

This book contains approx 120 original wartime/pre-war photos and 6 in-depth colour profiles
