9780004722603: How to Fly and Fight in the Spitfire (Jane's At the Controls)

The ultimate “hands on” guide to the Supermarine Spitfire, the famous fighter plane from the Battle of Britain.

At the Controls takes you on a typical interceptor mission. Spectacular artwork and photographs support a vivid text that takes you step by step through the flight.

This is not yet another history of the Spitfire. At the Controls reveals what it was like to fly and fight in this outstanding aircraft, where to aim to bring down an enemy bomber, why you never followed a Messerschmitt Bf-109 down to low level and how to break off a fight when your fuel ran low.

Based on extensive interviews with veteran pilots, this is a revolutionary account of Britain’s greatest wartime fighter plane.

From the Back Cover:

Jane’s 'At the Controls' reveals what it was like to fly and fight in the Supermarine Spitfire. There have been many histories of the Spitfire, but the 'At the Controls' series puts you in the cockpit, revealing why the Spitfire was such an outstanding fighter. Aviation expert David Oliver describes how a typical interception mission was performed during the Battle of Britain, the best way for a Spitfire to shoot down a German bomber, what to do, and what not to d, when tangling with a Messerschmitt Bf-109. This is a completely fresh look at the only British fighter to remain in production throughout World War II.
