Description

To celebrate the RAF’s first 100 years, this Haynes Manual showcases the top 100 technical innovations that have been used and/or devised by the Service over the past century--some large like the variable geometry (or swing) wing, and others that were small but still vital like the dambusters’ hand-held wooden triangulation bomb sight--and describes how they worked.
