Description

This series of books provides a fresh user-friendly look at the military airfields of the British Isles. The series is split geographically, each book including a number of counties on a regional basis. Entries cover every military airfield within the counties, from WW1 to the present day and comprise: * Brief history of the airfield, construction and use including decoy sites * Comprehensive list of flying units with dates and aircraft types * List of HQ units based at the airfield * Details of memorials * Maps and plans of almost every airfield * Location details * Selection of period photographs The airfields of Southern England like Biggin Hill, Kenley and Hawkinge played host to the greatest part of the action of the Battle of Britain. Farnborough birthplace of British aviation lies in Hampshire and many regional airfields played host to vital anti-submarine patrols during WW1. AUTHOR: Ken Delve joined the Royal Air Force as a Navigator and in a 20-year flying career served with a number of operational squadrons (Canberra and Tornado), as well as spending time as an instructor. His interest in aviation history was stimulated by his role as a squadron and station historian, a 'secondary duty' during most of his postings, and this led to an involvement in researching and writing articles and books. On leaving the RAF he became Editor of FlyPast magazine, the market-leading historic aviation magazine, and was subsequently appointed Editor-in-Chief with Key Publishing with responsibility for eight aviation magazines. He is now a training consultant in the Middle East. An established author of 30 books and hundreds of articles, Ken Delve also lectures on RAF history and air power. He is the founding Director of the Aviation History Centre, a web-based aviation history research facility. 250 b/w photos & diagrams
