Product description

 

US aviation spying over the Communist block during the Cold War began in the late 1940s in the Far East. Photographic research, however, should not be limited to the Asian part of the communist territory, but should also take place behind the Iron Curtain in Central and Eastern Europe. For this reason, the US Air Force has shifted a trio of brand new RF-100A Slick Chick reconnaissance aircraft into western Germany, which resulted from a rapid conversion from the F-100A Super Sabre fighter. By the end of the summer of 1955, American reconnaissance pilots had several times the opportunity to measure their forces with Czechoslovak fighters in the airspace of Czechoslovakia.

The Super Sabre book above Czechoslovakia describes not only the actions of the RF-100A aircraft in the depths of the Czechoslovak territory but also the operational history of the US aerial photographic, radio and radio survey around the Iron Curtain from the end of World War II until the mid-1950s. Within the same time period, the book also illustrates the operational history of the American adversary on the opposite side of the barbed wire - the Czechoslovak fighter air force. The text is supplemented by about a hundred period photographs, 14 colour profiles and ten original maps.
Unfortunately in Czech but the period pictures of planes and equipment od east and west, maps of flown spyroutes and profiles of the period planes make it for an interesting book nonetheless.
