Fairey Fox - Caught in the Tides of War

Fairey Fox - Caught in the Tides of War

Edwin Hoogschagen, Yves Duwelz and Amaru Tincopa

Three well respected aviation historians have compiled what may be a definitive monograph on the Fairey Fox. From the first flight of the prototype in January 1925, the Fairey Fox was a winner. However, there was some resistance from the RAF as it was powered by an American engine, the Curtiss D-12, manufactured in the UK by Fairey who named it the Felix. Later that year ACM Hugh Trenchard famously ordered a squadron of Foxes for the RAF.

The authors detail the extensive service the Fox saw in the Belgian and Peruvian air forces. It served in Belgium up to the German invasion in May 1940, despite being woefully outdated by then.

The book corrects many misunderstandings and outright myths surrounding the history of the type. The volume gives a detailed description of all aircraft operated. It is well-illustrated with unique and high-quality photographs. Furthermore, illustrator Luca Canossa, has produced some 15 colour profiles, which beautifully complement the text.
This is definitely a must for all those enthusiasts interested in inter-war military aircraft.

210x224mm, hardback, 145 photos, 120 pages.
