Boeing 747, 1970 onwards (all marks), Owners’ Workshop Manual

B1757

This new Owner’s Workshop Manual provides a unique insight into the 747 story, a story which has yet to complete because the 747-8 was a major redesign in 2005 that adopted technology from the 787. The familiar series approach in this Manual makes full use of colour throughout to display some outstanding photographs and drawings. In this particular book, the “Owners’ Workshop Manual” sub-title may be unfortunate because it could put off some readers who avoid technology but would be fascinated to read the story of an airliner which is instantly recognizable around the world. This is an excellent book that is highly recommended to technical and non-technical readers. So many lives have been touched by the Boeing 747 that this deserves to be a very widely read book. The author is an experienced 747 pilot and his writing style will embrace a wide readership.

Hawker Siddley/BAE Harrier, 1960 onwards (all marks), Owner’s Workshop Manual

B1756

This manual provides a unique insight into an outstanding weapons system that may now be in its twilight years but remains potent and has contributed much to the development of the Lockheed Martin Lightning II, which will probably be the most influential aircraft for the next three decades. The standard of the manual is well up to the level pioneered by the publisher in using a Workshop Manual format to tell the complex story of advanced technology in a way that can be followed even by the non-technical. Highly recommended.
