This book covers the complete and long overdue history of the Hunting/BAC Jet Provost and Strikemaster, which for thirty-eight years trained generations of pilots and pioneered the RAF's all-through flying training programme.

Here, David Watkins has produced an extensive look at these aircraft after years of painstaking research assisted by veterans and historians. Having accessed the archives of the Warton Collection, he has amassed a range of rare photography to accompany the extraordinary history of these jets.

From Jet Provost to Strikemaster is a work of narrative and technical detail which will satisfy the most avid aviation fans.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"At a time when some aviation books are still laid out in a way that would have looked dated 30 years ago, the design is extremely modern without being fussy, and the paper quality is excellent... The text generally reads well, and is very comprehensive in its treatment of these illustrious British aircraft."--Aeroplane Monthly
Now - finally, in my opinion - someone thoroughly relates the "definitive history" of this pioneering warplane in From Jet Provost to Strikemaster"--Cybermodeler
