    Grub Street Publishing 2013; US$ 18.95

    The scrapping of the Nimrod program has been one of the most controversial events in the military aviation world for many a year. For most of its operational life, from 1969 to date, its contribution to the defense of the realm and its role in offensive duties was, of necessity, often shrouded in secrecy. It was the ‘eye in the sky’ which... more...
