British Ground-Attack Aircraft of the 1970s and ’80s
Historic Military Aircraft Series, Vol 8
The SEPECAT Jaguar and Hawker Siddeley Harrier played critical ground-attack and tactical reconnaissance roles. The Jaguar came into RAF service in 1974 and flew with eight squadrons and an Operational Conversion Unit before being retired in 2007. The Harrier entered RAF service in 1969. It flew with four squadrons, as well as being deployed in Belize and the Falkland Islands, and with an Operational Conversion Unit. The Harrier was prematurely retired in 2011. With over 180 photographs, this book, the third in a series on British aircraft of the 1970s and ’80s, will appeal to aviation historians, enthusiasts, and modellers.
