Product Description
For the first time, this book traces the complete history of the world's first jet airliner, and how this aircraft was developed from the civil airliner the Comet into a succession of military aircraft named Nimrod, which has been the RAF's primary Maritime Patrol Aircraft since the 1970s. It includes much previously unpublished data, including information on a remarkable Nimrod version that was unfortunately abandoned, and a version that was previously kept secret. Written by highly respected aviation expert Bill Gunston, "Nimrod: The Centenarian Aircraft" includes cutaway drawings for each aircraft, detailed numerical data, and is the first publication to record dangerous problems with a vitally important RAF aircraft.
