The Swordfish Story by Ray Sturtivant

218 x 275 x 17mm

Designed as a torpedo spotter reconnaissance aircraft in 1933, the Fairey Swordfish "Stringbag" was to become one of the most remarkable aircraft of the Second World War. This is the story of Fairey's most famous aircraft, from design genesis through peacetime service, then war action in many theatres and on to final retirement, by when it had outlived its supposed successor. Naval aviation historian Ray Sturtivant's account combines facts and data with crew reminiscences. Superbly illustrated throughout, the book includes full specifications for the Swordfish variants; the names of all squadrons fully or partly equipped with Swordfish; a directory of all known Swordfish losses; and a list of all aircraft individual histories.
