Yet another superbly readable title!

Haynes have done it again! I've been reading online about this very exciting era of the Schneider Trophy and our British entries between the wars, and just had to have a book on the subject!
Author Ralph Pegram has produced a very readable and superbly illustrated book here. This book really delves into the technical side of the Supermarine company's trophy winner, the rather unromantically named model 'S6B'. As many will already know, and the reader will soon learn, this aircraft, being developed around the 1930-mark, enabled Supermarine to really understand the subject of speed agility in one aircraft design, and that experience was ultimately utilised a few years later; just in time for the start of the Second World War, where the design became known, of course, as the Supermarine Spitfire. The reader will really get to grips with all the technicalities of the design work and all the trials and tribulations of producing a new aircraft for a particular purpose. A very well-researched book. Top marks Haynes, yet another winner!!
