Title: Supermarine Attacker & Scimitar

Originally designed for the RAF, the Supermarine Attacker combined the wings and landing gear of the Spiteful (a piston-engined aircraft developed from the Spitfire) with a new fuselage and tail unit to accommodate the Rolls-Royce Nene jet engine.

The first example flew in 1946 and after successful carrier trials was ordered into production for the Royal Navy. Entering service in 1951, 145 examples were produced for the Royal Navy, but were obsolete by 1957. 36 examples were supplied to the Pakistani Air Force.

To maximise value, this title contains the complete flight manuals for both the Supermarine Attacker and Supermarine Scimitar, has been scanned from the original manuals and retains any colour pages.
