HAWKER SEAHAWK

$9.95

Title: Hawker Seahawk

The Sea Hawk was the first jet engined fighter produced by Hawker Aircraft. It was developed from the piston-engined Sea Fury, via several experimental aircraft which refined the configuration, including the unique bifurcated jetpipes.

Originally intended for the RAF, they showed little interest and the main user became the Royal Navy. After navalising the aircraft entered service in 1953. Although eventually over 500 were manufactured, its service life was quite short as it was replaced in first line service by the Scimitar and Sea Vixen starting in 1958. The aircraft was exported to several countries including India, Netherlands and Germany. The Indian aircraft saw combat in two wars and remained in service until 1983.

This title contains the flight manuals (titled Pilots Notes) for most variants of the Sea Hawk including pre-production and export aircraft. The flight manuals have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages.
