Descripción 1st ed., 1966. Xi + 211 pp., photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Tiny bumps to top corners o/w Nr.FINE. Designed by R. J. Mitchell, famous for the immortal Spitfire and the Schneider Trophy winners of the early 1930’s, the service life of the Supermarine Walrus must be amongst the longest and it certainly performed a greater variety of military tasks in World War II than any other aircraft. A true amphibian, it was catapulted from ships, lurched aloft off breaking seas or staggered into the air from jungle strips, landed on lagoons, ice-floes and scrubland ; it dive bombed, reconnoitred, fought and achieved an astonishing record of rescue work. This book is a lively tribute to the old "Shagbat" by an accomplished writer who flew them himself for eight years and commanded 700 Squadron. Nº de ref. de la librería C147B427
