Lost Aviation Collections of Britain

This book in the 'Wrecks and Relics' series is a special 50th anniversary edition, which takes a nostalgic look at aircraft collections that many older readers will remember. The book is divided into 27 chapters, each one covering one or more collections.
I am sure that many readers will be familiar with at least one of the locations that are covered. My particular favourite, RAF Finningley, is now a commercial airport, but at least it is the home of the last flying Vulcan – at the moment.
The title of this book must not be taken to heart, because most of the aircraft have just moved to new quarters.
But there are I am afraid some items that we have lost, including the Cierva Air Horse, the Armstrong Whitworth Scimitar and the DH Flamingo to name three.
As usual with Ken Ellis you will find this edition packed with information, plus a large number of photographs, in both monochrome and colour, In particular the 'current status' list is vital for anyone wishing to locate any of these aircraft for further study.
This is a unique volume that I am sure will be of great interest to the huge army of enthusiasts who fill our airfields on Air Show days.
