Classic British Warbirds of the 1960s
by Henry Tenby
About the Book
This all colour book features 100 pages of British warbirds photographed by Dave Lawrence with captions explaining the airfield and date, making this book an interesting snap shot of the classic warbird scene in Britain during the 1960s.
The 1960s was an interesting period for British warbirds. World War II was only 20 years in the past, and iconic British combat aircraft from the conflict were in greater abundance than today.
Fabulous marques like the Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane and Sea Fury, Avro Lancaster, De Havilland Mosquito and many others were somewhat common at British airfields during the 1960s, and a young RAF pilot named Dave Lawrence was fortunate enough to photograph many of these aircraft throughout the decade.
The photos in this book were taken at British air fields including Cranfield, Staverton, Finningly, Abingdon, Little Rissington, Church Fenton, Chivenor, Binbrook and many others.
