    DescriptionIn the two decades that followed World War 2, designed and constructed British military aircraft were still at the forefront of aviation technology. Today, there is huge interest in this postwar, Cold War era, when Britain still had a strong military aviation industry that produced aircraft not only for the RAF and Royal Navy, but for air forces around the world. Tony Buttler has been collecting rare color photographs of these aircraft over many years, and this book will provide a complete photographic survey of all the manufacturers and the major aircraft in a variety of markings as well as many rare types and prototypes that flew. The photographs date from the late 1940s through to the 1960s; many of them were taken at the air shows of the period, but also include air-to-air photographs. The book has an introductory text for each manufacturer and official color descriptions of the aircraft. It includes a variety of previously unpublished color photographs with detailed captions.
