Titles: Fairey Gannet No’s 1 and 2

The Fairey Gannet was a British carrier-borne anti-submarine (ASW) and airborne early warning (AEW) three-seat mid-wing monoplane, with double Mamba turbo-prop engines driving two contra-rotating propellers. Two variants, the AS.1 and AS.4 were ASW aircraft, two were pilot training aircraft, the T.2 and T.5, and the AEW.3 was an AEW aircraft.

The prototype first flew in 1949 and a total of 348 were built including 44 of the highly modified AEW.3 variant. The aircraft was exported to Germany, Australia and Indonesia.

We offer two titles for the Fairey Gannet, covering most models of the Gannet in Royal Navy service. Each title contains pilot’s flight manuals (titled Pilot’s Notes) for various models of the Gannet, has been scanned from the original flight manuals and retains any colour pages.
