Overview


This volume (of what is hoped will become the first of a decade-by-decade series) covers the period 1951–60, which saw the RAF’s transition to the jet age. The photographs cover all kinds of aircraft-related activity, both at home and overseas, when the RAF still had many exotic foreign bases around the globe that made vivid and unusual settings against which to photograph its aircraft and personnel. This book will be part of the Haynes joint publishing program with the RAF and will bear the RAF’s official branding. The Air Historical Branch will be giving the book its full and enthusiastic support. The proposal is for a large-format full-color picture-led book with extended captions that showcases some of the amazing (and often rare) color photographs of the RAF in the post-war years. Most of these pictures were taken by RAF professional photographers and have been archived at the RAF Air Historical Branch (AHB). The majority haven’t seen widespread use since they were first taken.
