At the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939, the Air Ministry was created and, on 7 October of that year, the Spanish Air Force, or Ejército del Aire (EdA), was born. Starting life from the ashes of conflict, it has grown to become on of the most important air forces in Europe. To date, there have not been many books published about the history of the EdA, an oversight this volume seeks to redress. Illustrated with over 200 stunning photographs of bombers, fighters, transport, reconnaissance, attack, liaison and trainer aircraft, along with seaplanes and helicopters, taken over several decades, this book covers the history and aircraft of the EdA from its inception to the present day. The many aircraft detailed include the Fiat Cr.32, Ju 52 and Bf 109 from the early days through to the A400M Atlas, F-18 Hornet and Eurofighter EF2000 currently flown.

This is primarily a picture book but it does have some useful history starting with the period immediately after the Spanish Civil War and continuing with detail of the wide variety of aircraft flown in Spain over more than 80 years. There are colour illustrations of many now-forgotten types including Starfighters, Boeing KC-97s and Beech Barons which make it an enjoyable page turner.

Aviation World

Aviation enthusiasts will enjoy this and, speaking as a modeller of many years, this might well encourage some to try the Spanish Air Force as a good contender for some themed builds.
