"British Phantoms. A special tribute to a Cold War legend" (ENG) Книга про британские Фантомы. Переплет мягкий журнальный.
It is hard to believe that 25 years have passed since the RAF retired its 'Phinal Phantom', in October 1992.
The British version of the Phantom was an aircraft designed essentially to a Royal Navy specification. It also had extra 'tweaks' made to it in an attempt both to win political favour and enable it to be produced in Britain.
Considering it was an aircraft the RAF never really wanted, the Phantom went on to have a distinguished air force career. But all things come to an end, and in 1992 the last examples were flown into retirement, with the majority of them succumbing to the scrapper's axe. This 100-page special is a eulogy to the British Phantom, one of the most loved fighter aircraft to ever serve with the British military.
