This superbly illustrated book celebrates the long and rich history of Bahrain's involvement in military and civil aviation. Drawing on a wide range of Bahraini sources and UK archives, aviation expert David Watts tells a fascinating story, while the renowned aviation photographer Katsuhiko Tokunga provides a series of dramatic images of aircraft in action in Bahrain today. The book covers Bahrain's role as a staging post in the development of long distance air travel in the 1920s, it's role during World War II, the activities of the post-war British air bases, the formation of the Royal Bahraini Air Force in 1976, and the RBAF's role in the Gulf War of 1991. With its longstanding tradition as a trusted friend of the West, Bahrain has developed a highly developed civil and military aviation infrastructure which will ensure its pivotal role in future developments.
