£9.99

Product description

Lost Aviation Collections of Britain from Ken Ellis
A tribute to the UK's bygone aviation museums and collections

Britain's diverse aviation heritage owes much to the pioneer museums and collections that fell by the wayside from the 1930s onwards. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first publication of Wrecks & Relics (approx 52,000 sales since it s first publication) this limited edition commemorates our bygone glories.
Warbird pioneers such as Richard Nash, Spencer Flack, and Charles Church are put into their context and important institutions that helped kick-start the booms of the 1960s and 1970s Cranfield and Loughborough are explained. Then there are the much-loved museums that are no more, including Colerne, Skyfame, Southend, Strathallan, and Torbay. More than 40 such organizations, large and small, are covered with important types that slipped the net and are extinct in the UK, including the ATEL Carvair, Miles Marathon, and the Westland Whirlwind fighter.
Ken Ellis, contributing editor of Flypast, the UK s biggest circulation aviation magazine, provides a wonderful trip down memory lane for those who witnessed an incredible era and a fantastic reference for those who wished they had!
