This 132-page British Aerospace and BAE SYSTEMS publication, written by renowned author Stephen Skinner, commemorates the 40th birthday of one of Britain’s most important companies. In April 1977, the UK’s airframe companies were merged to become British Aerospace (BAe). The newly-formed company inherited several military programmes; the Tornado, Jaguar, Harrier and Hawk which assured work for this part of the organisation. The civil side was less secure as its major products were mostly at the end of production. To maintain BAe’s position in this sector, the 125 and Jetstream were further developed, the company re-joined the Airbus consortium and BAe146 received the go-ahead.
Using extensive archive images, inside comment and researchers, this bookazine presents an incredible salute to Britain’s foremost post-war aircraft manufacturers.
