Customer Reviews

This is an excellent review of this aircraft. I spent some time researching this purchase,comparing Crowood's version with Scoval's. Scoval has a very good airline in service section with many rare colour photos. However Crowood covers much more of the aircraft's development history and technical details. As a result it's much more informative. Both books are difficult to find. I checked with Foyles before I ordered on line as they had only one in stock. It duly arrived promptly and in first class condition. It's now a prized addition to my library of first generation jets. Lewis Thomas
