041569 - THE HANDLEY PAGE VICTOR: Tales From A Crew Chief - 40 Years of Life with the Victor

By Roger R Brooks

In this follow-up to _The Handley Page Victor: The History and Development of a Classic Jet,_ Volumes 1 & 2, Roger Brooks extends his earlier historical narratives, this time offering an action-packed and riveting memoir of a career spanning forty years.

The book charts changes as they occurred in the aeronautical industry from the 1950's onwards and, as such, it should appeal to both individuals who were caught up in events at the time as well as students of the era. In addition to the aircraft itself, Roger worked extensively with tankers, refuelling the Victor as it took part in a variety of operations in the fraught Cold War era. He brings all aspects of his career to life across these pages, offering the kind of details that can only be gained by first-hand experience.
