            Skyhawks: The History of the RNZAF Skyhawk
              

            Skyhawks: The History of the RNZAF Skyhawk (Hardback)

            By Simms, Don; Lee-Frampton, Nick

            This book is in brilliant colour, with hundreds of photographs. It will give the reader an understanding of what it was like to be in the professional, close-knit team that was the RNZAF Air Combat Force. Whether in the flying units at Ohakea and Nowra, or in the support units at... Ohakea and Woodbourne, they were true professionals, totally dedicated to operating old but well maintained aircraft that were a testament to good old kiwi ingenuity and were far from being clapped out as others famously chose to describe them. New Zealanders can be hugely proud of the achievements of their Air Combat Force over many decades. This book records their history. It is dedicated to all those who flew, and supported the Skyhawk in its 31 years of active Royal New Zealand Air Force service.
