Description
The popularity of the fighter aircraft used in World War II is huge in New Zealand, as evidenced by the enormous crowds that turn up for events such as Warbirds over Wanaka—more than 80,000 people attended the 2010 event. New Zealand is extremely lucky that there are a wide range of airworthy WWII-era classic fighters remaining in the country, the subject of this superb new book of aviation photography.

Author Gavin Conroy has had unparalleled access to New Zealand's classic fighters, and specialises in close-up air-to-air photography, which captures so much of the character and appeal of these extraordinary machines.

Included in this pocket edition of the large format book, originally published in 2011, are all of the important aircraft flying in New Zealand. Included are the Supermarine Spitfire, the P-51D Mustang, the P-40 Kittyhawk, the FG-1D Corsair, the Hawker Hurricane, the P-40B Tomahawk, the Yak 3, the Lavochkin La-9, and importantly Germany's great fighter, the Focke Wulf 190. For all of the fifteen aircraft featured, there is a short, but informative text.

An ideal gift for passionate warbird enthusiasts.
