Titles: Fairey Firefly No 1 and No 2

The Fairey Firefly was a British carrier-borne fighter and anti-submarine aircraft, first flown in 1941, but entering service in late 1943. It initially served as a fleet fighter, but post-war was relegated to other roles such as anti-submarine and training. It remained a mainstay of the Royal Navy throughout the 1950’s, and was exported to several countries including Canada, India, Sweden and Australia.

Just over 1700 were built and they remained in service in some countries until the late 1960’s, due to their sturdy construction and ease of operation.

We offer two titles for the Firefly, containing flight manuals (called Pilot’s Notes by the RAF) for all variants of the firefly, including that used for an early drone version and the aircraft operated by the Royal Navy Historic Flight, plus a nice manufacturer’s brochure.
