|About the Book|
In this book, Harry Holmes tells the long and complicated story of the Avro 748. The prototype first flew in June 1960, and from then on a steady stream of 748s left the factory to go to both civilian and military customers. There have been special cargo models, variants for heads of state, and a special fire-fighting variant. With six million flying hours to its credit, the 748 has lived up to all the expectations of it and will, no doubt, continue to do so for a long time.
