SWIFT JUSTICE: The Supermarine Swift - Low-level by Nigel Walpole

By Nigel Walpole

The Supermarine speedy was once rushed into floor with the RAF in the course of 1954 to turn into Britain’s first second-generation jet fighter. during this function it was once no longer deemed successful and has been careworn with a nasty popularity on the grounds that that point. It was once finally changed by way of the well-known Hawker Hunter that were broadly behind schedule as a result of teething issues.

Although now not winning as an interceptor fighter due to it’s terrible functionality at excessive altitude, it will definitely discovered a necessary function as a low-level short-range reconnaissance airplane working at the fringe of the Iron Curtain on the top of the chilly battle. RAF squadrons flew the speedy FR.5 for 5 profitable years. The publication covers the improvement and operational background of an important airplane that may be a a part of aviation legend
