In a modern world where, since the Second World War, the once vibrant British aircraft industry has contracted virtually to the point of extinction - consigning once well-known names such as Airspeed, Supermarine, Folland, Gloster, Parnall, Saunders-Roe, Bristol and Vickers-Armstrongs to history - British Built Aircraft - South West & Central Southern England provides a lasting record of British achievement, innovation, failure and success.Following on from British Built Aircraft - Greater London, this volume, the second in the series, comprehensively documents the complete evolution and history of aircraft construction and activity within South West and Central Southern England, including such sites as a Hamble, Hurn, Hucclecote, Farnborough and Yeovil. This series sheds light on the sheer scale of effort involved in the construction of aircraft during the First World War, while paying tribute to the heritage of the British aircraft industry.
