British Fighters of the 1970s and ’80s

Two of the RAF s most memorable aircraft are the English Electric Lightning and the McDonnell Phantom. The Lightning, which flew with nine RAF squadrons before being retired in 1988, is fondly remembered for is astonishing rate of climb, while the Phantom, which flew with three Royal Navy squadrons and 15 RAF squadrons, started out in the ground-attack and reconnaissance roles but became more predominant in the tactical fighter role before being retired in 1992.

Illustrated with more than 180 photographs, this book, covers in great detail the Lightning and Phantom fighter aircraft and the part they played in the latter stages of the Cold War.
