De Havilland Aircraft since 1909 (Putnam Aviation Series)
De Havilland Aircraft since 1909 (Putnam Aviation
The de Havilland Aircraft Company was founded in 1920, but had its origins with the first steps in biplane design made by Geoffrey de Havilland, who in 1908 left his job with the Motor Omnibus Construction Company to embark on a career as an aeroplane designer. During the First World War, his D.H. 4 bomber design was supplied in hundreds to both the Royal Flying Corps and the United States Army Air Service. A D.H.4 variant was also the first aeroplane to provide a passenger service, between Paris and London. The tradition built on the reputation of de Havilland's work during the First World War, also provided the foundation for some of the most popular aircraft for civil and military aviation - the D.H.60 G Gipsy Moth, the D.H.71 Tiger Moth, the D.H.98 Mosquito light bomber, and the D.H.106 Comet are all storied names in the history of British aviation. The story that unfolds in these pages also includes the tragic death of Geoffrey de Havilland's son, Geoffrey Jr., a test pilot killed flying the De Havilland D.H.108. The late A J Jackson had a particular affection for de Havilland aircaft and was particularly fond of flying Tiger Moths. He is also the author of Avro Aircraft since 1908 and Blackburn Aircraft since 1909 (both Putnam).

De Havilland Comet: The World's First Commercial Jetliner (World's Greatest Airliners)
De Havilland Comet: The World's First Commercial Jetliner
The world got a little smaller in July 1949 when the first jet-powered airliner took to the skies barely four years after the end of the Second World War.Not only was the de Havilland Comet 1 was a lot faster than previous airliners, it could fly higher and further. It was packed with new technology but, perhaps most importantly for those early passengers, it was a quiet, luxurious and even pleasant experience, something that could never be said for the noisy piston-engine aircraft that came before.The Comet’s leadership in jet travel for the future was assured until aircraft began crashing. The first ones were put down to pilot error but two disastrous events in 1954 grounded the fleet and Britain’s advantage over the rest of the world was lost. Boeing caught up with its ubiquitous 707 and the Comet was destined to become but a memory.However, rising from the ashes came a new Comet – one that was bigger and more powerful than before and designed for completely different roles. Where the first Comets had provided an expensive and plush way to travel for the rich few, the new Comet 4s carried more passengers to a multitude of destinations inevitably becoming key carriers for the early package holidaymakers. At the same time they became vital strategic transports for the RAF ...

De Havilland Moths: A Family Album
De Havilland Moths: A Family
The de Havilland Moth family of aircraft are known the world over for their fundamental importance towards the development of the practical and affordable light aeroplane. Despite first emerging in 1925, many can still be found flying today. Perhaps best known is the DH.82 Tiger Moth biplane use as a trainer in World War II. However, a great number of different models were encompassed under the Moth name, from the original DH.60 Cirrus Moth to the clean lines of the DH.94 Moth Minor. Along the way were types such as the passenger carrying Giant Moth and the elegant Puss Moth. This book traces the Moth family through all of the different types using photographs from the author's own extensive collection, as well as archive images and materials to bring the full story to life.

De Havilland Moths In Detail: DH60, DH80, DH82,
The Moth was designed to be the airplane for the man in the street: affordable, simple and safe and it inspired a world-wide revolution in club flying, civil and military training and private ownership. The DH60 Moth of 1925 led to a family of light airplanes which continued to evolve and sell all over the world until the very eve of the Second World War when most private flying came to an abrupt end. The DH82A Tiger Moth, icon of military pilot training throughout the conflict, became the standard aircraft for post-war flying clubs in many countries and effectively invented the new industry of agricultural aviation. In the heady days of pre-war civil aviation, de Havilland Moth aircraft were supported by a universal network of agents supplying spares and technical assistance. They were used for racing and record breaking, flights of extreme courage and endurance and small airline activities This new book outlines the early days of the de Havilland Aircraft Company and studies the evolution of each of the Moth family of light airplanes and their engines which took place between 1925 and 1939.

De Havilland Mosquito: The Original Multirole Combat Aircraft
De Havilland Mosquito: The Original Multirole Combat
De Havilland Mosquito: The Original Multirole Combat Aircraft covers the creation, design and development of the beloved Mosquito that was built in Britain, Canada and Australia, followed by service during the Second World War in Britain, Europe and Asia. The Mosquito was initially designed as a twin Rolls-Royce Merlin-powered unarmed bomber with a crew of two and was constructed mainly of wood, which was a non-strategic material using unskilled labor. Included in its many additional roles were those of pathfinder, photo reconnaissance, night fighter, intruder, fighter bomber, electronic counter measures, naval operations and high-speed courier. This essential book features the experiences of designers, construction workers and aircrew. Also, it contains many original contemporary and previously unpublished photographs covering service with RAF squadrons and overseas air forces in its many varied roles. Appendices cover production, specifications of each variant, equipped RAF and RN units and details of surviving Mosquitos.

History of the de Havilland Vampire
History of the de Havilland
The de Havilland Vampire was the second of the RAF's first-generation, post-Second World War jet fighters to enter service. It began life as an interceptor but was soon re-tasked in the day fighter/ground attack roles with the 2nd Tactical Air Force in Germany from 1948 to 1954 and with the RAF's Middle and Far East Air Forces. Throughout its forty-six-year career, it collected many notable firsts: it was the first jet fighter to cross the Atlantic; the first jet to land on an aircraft carrier; and the first jet trainer on which student pilots qualified for their 'Wings'. In addition to playing a full part in the RAF's order of battle during the 1940s and 1950s, the Vampire also served with the Fleet Air Arm and became an export success story for the British aircraft industry with hundreds sold to air forces worldwide. For a brief period during the 1950s, the Vampire formed the backbone of the RAF's night-fighter force and between 1952 and 1967 the Vampire trainer was responsible for a steady flow of trained pilots for the RAF, Royal Navy and foreign air forces. This comprehensive history covers the Vampire's development and operational service. It has been written with the full co-operation of the manufacturer, MoD, RAF and other world air forces, mixing narrative and technical ...

The de Havilland Mosquito: Through the Eyes of
The de Havilland DH 98 Mosquito was one of the fastest and most versatile aircraft of the Second World War. One of the first multi-role aircraft, it was used for reconnaissance and also as a fighter, fighter-bomber, night fighter and interceptor. This book, written by David Ogilvy, one of the last surviving pilots to have flown Mosquitos in squadron service and later in a civilian capacity, spread intermittently over fifteen years, provides an expert inside story of the secret development of the aircraft, the astonishing impact it made when first flown, its operational achievements, handling qualities and the many design developments that took it from quicksilver photographic reconnaissance aircraft to long-range bomber and pathfinder. As preparations are made to bring a working Mosquito back to Britain from New Zealand, this book is a worthy testament to one of the most remarkable British military aircraft.

Douglas A1 Skyraider Owners' Workshop Manual: 1945 -
The Skyraider became legendary for its ability to soak up battle damage and still keep flying. It was eventually replaced in the US Navy by the swept-wing jet A-6 Intruder and A-7 Corsair. Radar-equipped Skyraiders were operated by the Royal Navy (1951-62) as airborne early warning aircraft, while the French Air Force bought ex-US Navy Skyraiders for use in the Algerian War in the 1960s, and in the 1970s during the civil war in Chad where they were flown by French mercenary pilots.
