about

David Watkins' book covers the complete and long overdue history of the Hunting/BAC Jet Provost and Strikemaster, which for 38 years trained generations of pilots and pioneered the RAF's all—through flying training programme. Although many company records and photographs were lost, the author's painstaking research and assistance from many veterans and the Warton Collection produces a work of narrative and technical detail, accompanied by a wealth of colour and black and white photographs, that will never be bettered. The book also includes exclusive coverage with first—hand accounts of the 13 air forces to operate both types, from operations in the Dhofar War, to close support and counter—insurgency against well—armed, communist—backed guerrillas.

David Watkins joined the RAF when he was 19 and saw service in the UK, Germany and the Far East. He has written books on the de Havilland Vampire and Venom, No. 501 (County of Gloucester) Squadron, RAuxAF, RAF Chivenor and RAF Aerobatic Teams since 1920.
