North American (Fiat) F-86K

An excellent monography dealing with one of the most ancient fighter ofthe Italian Aeronautica Militare, treated in every detail. The layout is the usual, bilingual text (Italian/English) and standard format. The volume starts retracing the history of this fighter: its birth, evolution, roles and episodes that concerned it from the Autumn of year 1956 until the 27th of July 1973, the day of the last flight of an italian F-86K. The historical dealing encloses a lot of photographs with commented captions. The following sections deal with the pilots of the Italian Air Force who died during their activity with F-86K, with the Wings and Squadrons Commenders equipped with this fighter, with the total amount of hours recorded by F-86K of the Italian Air Force, with the prototypes received from the Dutch Air Force and the ones given to France. Given that is a book suitable both for history lovers and modellers, the author could not leave behind the chapters dedicated to the technical details of the plane and tothe reproduction of the model. Both chapters are enriched with detailed and beautiful colour profiles, drawings and photographs. Not to be missed especially for the rich collection of photos most of which unpublished.
