AMERYKAŃSKI NADDŹWIĘKOWY MYŚLIWIEC F-14 TOMACAT GRUMMAN


UWAGA!

Oferowana książka wydana jest w języku angielskim (niedostępna w polskiej wersji językowej).


Few aircraft of the Cold War era have attained such cult status and adoration among those who flew it, wanted to fly it or kept it flying as the mighty Grumman F-14 Tomcat. As big, bold and brash as the Top Gun film in which it palyed the starring role in 1986, the US Navy's ultimate fleet fighter epitomised what Naval Aviation was all about throughout the jet's three decades of service with its primary operator. Although acquired as a single-mission interceptor, the Tomcat had evolved into a multi-role precision strike bomber by the time it was retired by thefleet in 2006
As impressive as the "Big Fighter" was in its natural environment flying from a carrier, the aircraft relied on highly trained Naval Aviators and Radr Intercept Officers to get the best out of Grumman's final fighter when performing its many operational roles. They were in turn supported by a veritable army of maintainers who were required to keep the F14 operational in the harshest working environment of them all.
Author Tony Holmes gives readers a rare insight into flying, fighting and fixing the mighty Tomcat as well as providing a concise history of the jet's service with the US NAvy in Operation Desert Storm (1991), Deliberate Force ( Bosnia-Hertzegovina, 1995), and Allied Force(Bosnia and Kosovo, 1999). In 2001, F-14s led some of the first atrikes into Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom), and on Iraq in 2003 (Operation Iraqi Freedom). Its service with the Impeial Air Force/ Islamic Republic of Iran Aur Force is aslo described
Supported by more than 300 photographs, the Haynes Grumman F-14 Tomcat Manula is a fitting tribute to The "Big Fighter" more than a decade after its retirement from fleet service. Its demise is still lamented by those who flew it, as well as those like the author who idolised the aircraft.
