Description
Taken over by the U.S. Air Force in 1950 as a direct result of the Cold War, the ex-RAF station at Manston in Kent served as a forward air base from which American aircraft could be rapidly deployed to meet the threat of incoming Soviet bombers. Manston also served as a base from which USAF forces in Europe could be speedily reinforced, and hosted some of the earliest helicopter-equipped dedicated search-and-rescue squadrons around the British coast. Despite never firing a shot in anger, the Manston-based units played a major role in the development of operational use and tactics of such early jet aircraft as the F-84 Thunderjet, the nuclear-armed Thunderstreak, and the F-86 Sabre in their numerous variants. Heavily illustrated with black and white and color photos and color profile drawings of specific aircraft, this book thoroughly documents operations at this U.S. base in England.
