Publisher's Summary

Originally intended as a trainer, the Anglo-French Sepecat jet, equipped with the very latest in weapon-aiming and navigational equipment, eventually became the backbone of the RAF's tactical strike-attack and recce forces for a decade from the mid-1970s. In these minutes, the Jaguar Boys - pilots, engineer, and ground crew - tell of the aircraft's drawbacks and joys, their sadness at losses, and their pleasure at its development into a readily deployable and outstandingly capable fighter-bomber for the post-Cold War era.

Then came the Gulf War, which signaled the start of a hectic sequence of operational adventures and upgrades for the "Boys", and seasoned veterans tell of action over Iraq and in the Balkans. One of the best-loved of RAF types, the Jaguar commanded a fierce loyalty and affection, which shines through in these accounts of an aircraft that will live forever in the memory.

Amazing Tales of Modern Flying

Exceptional book of information on the Jaguar Strike Aircraft. Sad too as I heard about one of the pilots, a friend...but that's another story.
