Steve Webster; Airfile Inform and Inspire. Following the end of WWII, the RAF was yet again tasked with implementing the policies of their political masters in the volatile and often openly hostile environment of the Middle East and Near East.

This book features over 200 illustrations featuring over 50 different aircraft (Spitfires, Tempest, Lancaster's, Dakotas, Vampires, Mosquitoes, Venoms, Hunters, Sycamores, Hercules, Nimrods and many more). Covering virtually all those that were used by the RAF from the end of WWII until the end of the 1970s, during which time the RAF operated in areas such as Aden, Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Iraq, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine and Syria.

Spanning the use of wartime vintage propeller-driven aircraft through to the jet age, and heralding the increasing use of helicopters, this book not only illustrates the changes in aircraft types, but the camouflage schemes and markings policies of RAF aircraft during this golden age of British military aviation. 72 pages.
