BE2a - A Definitive History

BE2a - A Definitive History

Paul R. Hare and Andrew Willox

Written by the world’s leading authority on the Royal Aircraft Factory, this volume is a detailed history of the development and operation of the BE2a. There are individual aircraft histories on every BE2a built, both RFC aircraft and the four for the RNAS. These are written in a narrative style with a full or double page photograph of the aircraft concerned. In addition, there are dedicated sections on experiments with wireless in BE2a aircraft, Captain Longcroft’s long range flights, Lt. Col. Burke DSO who commanded 2 Squadron flying BE2a aircraft in France at the outbreak of WW1, the Renault 70hp V8 engine, BE2a aerofoils and the replicas currently in existence.

There is a marvellous range of contemporary photographs and Royal Aircraft Factory drawings, as well as colour images of various replicas. This book is a must for enthusiasts of pre-WW1 and early WW1 aircraft.
