This AirDOC publication is presented in soft cover with full colour
glossy pages in A4 format.
The book covers the Israeli Air Force No 107 Squadron and contains many
photographs of the Spitfire Mk.IX, P-51D Mustang, Meteor Mk.8, Ouragan,
and F-4 Phantom. The publication contains 64 pages of German and the
equivalent English text with approx 118 colour photographs depicting No
107 Squadron aircraft both in peacetime and combat. A brief history of
each is provided including combat reports and squadron information.
A lot of information is included covering the early days of operation
leading into the Yom Kippur War. Many combat reports are included
including gunsight camera stills and reconnaissance camera stills of
ground attack missions.
A fitting touch is a foreword by Ran Goran who was the Commander of No
107 Squadron from December 1973 to July 1975.
The foreword leads into some squadron history before getting into the
specifics on squadron operations, pilots, and aircraft.
In summary, this is quite a comprehensive and nicely illustrated
publication and will be a welcome addition to the collection of any
person or modeller wanting good reference detail for the Israeli Air
