Avro: The History of an Aircraft Company
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe story of A.V. Roe and company Ltd (Avro) begins in the very earliest years of aviation, only three years after man's first powered flight. Alliot Verdon Roe was one of Britain's pioneer aviators and patented the design for his first aircraft in 1906. In 1910 he founded the company that bears his name, and Avro remained at the forefront of aeronautical progress until absorbed into Hawker Siddeley, and thence into BAE, in 1963. Famous for well-designed, reliable aeroplanes like the 504, the Avian, Anson and Shackleton, Avro's greatest achievements were two bombers--the Lancaster and the Vulcan--which captivate the public imagination to this day.
