Sabre in action is
available online from Squadron.com
from Squadron/Signal Publications in their 'In Action' series is Aircraft Number
190 covering the North American F-100 Super Sabre.
There is something about the 'In Action' series of books from Squadron Signal
Publications that is comforting. You know that what you are getting is both
excellent value for money and very informative without being too technical.
The F-100 Super Sabre In Action is no exception. It follows the tried and true
format that chronicles the F-100 from its inception, evolution and first flight
in 1953 though its development and operational employment in the 1950s, 60's and
early '70s to its final role in the guise of QF-100 target drone in the 80's.
The text is written in an easy to understand style and is liberally illustrated
with both top quality black and white photos and line drawings.
The F-100 went through many modifications during its life and the reader is made
aware of these differences with the provision of line drawings as well as text
that clearly illustrate the changes between each type.
The colours and markings worn by the F-100 are also covered and illustrated with
colour drawings by Don Greer in the centre pages and the front and rear covers.
This is a great 'meat and potatoes' book from Squadron Signal Publications that
will enhance any aircraft enthusiast or modeller's library.
Thanks to Squadron for the review sample.
