about

From the highly-successful author of Lightning Boys and Lightning Boys 2, Richard Pike, comes a welcome addition to the 'Boys' series, Hunter Boys. A fascinating insight into the experiences and affections of those who flew the iconic Hawker Hunter.

Fifteen aircrew relate their individual recollections of the highs and lows, the dramas and demands of this incredible aircraft, which came into service in July 1951 and changed the future of fighter development.

Including a chapter by Neville Duke, Hawker Aircraft's chief test pilot, other tales recount the Aden emergency, the 1971 Indo/Pakistan war and a
race against the odds in Gibraltar. All instances demonstrate the exceptional performance of this aircraft
and illustrate its well-renowned lengthy service life with the RAF and internationally.

In addition to the original photographs that accompany the text, renowned aviation artist Chris Stone has provided paintings especially for the book. The scope, style and pace of the writing in this book will
appeal to the general reader as well as to the enthusiast.
