This striking photographic collection looks at the large variety of RAF aircraft involved in the Cold War. These included air defenders such as Lightnings and Phantoms, which were often held ready to fly within ten minutes of an alert; strike/attack aircraft such as Buccaneers, Jaguars and Harriers, based in Germany; Victors, Tristars and VC10s for refuelling; and Nimrods for maritime surveillance and antisubmarine action. As the war progressed, some types of aircraft would be replaced by other, more advanced machines. The iconic Vulcan was eventually replaced by the Tornado GR1 in the UK, the Tornado F3 took over the UK air defense role from the Lightning and TWU Hawks were introduced as part of the Mixed Fighter Force. This book brings these classic aircraft to life with stunning photography, displaying them in all their glory, flying through the skies of a world divided by an iron curtain.
