Whirlwind - Westland's Enigmatic Fighter

Samenvatting - Faster and better armed than the Spitfire, the Whirlwind was the RAF's counter to a new generation of armoured German bombers which it expected to meet in English skies in 1940. A few months after its first flight 1,000 Whirlwinds were ordered, but nine months later the RAF cancelled the entire programme. Just 114 were built, but they went on to have a distinguished three-year career from the uneasy months after the Battle of Britain to their final sorties against Hitler's V-weapons sites in France.

Based on fresh research, this overdue study throws new light on why the RAF had such high hopes for the Whirlwind, but was still prepared to cancel it, its designer's efforts to save the programme and, above all, the aircraft's operational record. Attacking railways, shipping, torpedo boats and airfields, often against fierce opposition, the Whirlwind squadrons flew with determination and style and saw themselves as a privileged elite within Fighter Command - the 'fewest of the few'.

263 and 137 Squadrons : The Whirlwind Years

Samenvatting - For many, the Westland Whirlwind conjures the image of yellow air-sea rescue helicopters, not the sleek twin-engine monoplane that was the RAF's first single-seat, cannon-armed fighter.
Although faster and better armed than its legendary cousin, the Spitfire, the Westland Whirlwind has long been neglected the appreciation it deserves. Only 114 were built, sufficient to equip two squadrons: Nos 263 and 137.
Between 6 July 1940 and 31 December 1943, 210 pilots were listed in the Operational Record Books of these two squadrons; while 'The Few' won the Battle of Britain, the 'Whirlwind Men' were an even more select group, with some becoming a part of RAF folklore.

Based predominantly on first-hand accounts,263 and 137 Squadrons: The Whirlwind Years reveals the heroism and sacrifice of the squadrons' pilots - men who came from as far afield as Peru and Australia - and the impact this extraordinary but little-known aircraft had on the war.

The Merlin EH (AW) 101 : From Design to Front Line

Samenvatting - Designed by the European Helicopter Industries (EHI) partnership during the 1980s, initially as a naval helicopter to help combat the threat of an attack from Soviet missile submarines, the Merlin has evolved into a multi-role helicopter today.

The AW101 combines the most advanced technologies, safety by design, mission systems and leading-edge manufacturing to provide a proven platform for long-range Search and Rescue (SAR) operations in certain countries.
With a typical range of 750 nm (over 1,300 km) in standard configuration, the AW101 is the most capable SAR helicopter in the world today.

Other roles include transportation for Heads of State and VVIP operators; Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR); Maritime Interdiction Operations (MIO); Anti-Surface Warfare (ASuW); Airborne Surveillance and Control (ASaC); Airborne Mine Countermeasures (AMCM); troop transport; utility support, CASEVAC/MEDEVAC; and Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR).

Lavishly illustrated throughout, Rich Pittman offers a fascinating portrait of an enduring and popular aircraft and traces its journey from design to the front line.
