Mushroom Publ.: White Series - Fairey Gannet ASW.1 in service with the Royal Australian Navy fleet Air Arm
The booklets of this series contain, like the titles of the yellow series, who have a similar outfit, but a smaler size, scale plans, photos and drawings from Technical Manuals, superb colour illustrations of camouflage and markings, walk-around colour photographs and rare b/w archive photographs, beside the description of the develolpment and service history and the different versions of each type. According to the larger size of the "Withe Series" more information can be given as well as more illustrations presented. Essential reading for aviation enthusiasts & scale modellers.

Synopsis:
The ungainly-looking and unconventional Fairey Gannet served with several naval air arms in the 1950s and '60s, as a very effective carrier-borne submarine hunter. In this book the operation of the Gannet by the Royal Australian Navy's Fleet Air Arm is described, from the decision to adopt the Gannet, through initial training in the UK and onto operations from RAN carriers. The author has tracked down many pilots, aircrew, mechanics and deck crew, and they tell the story of the Gannet in their own words. The successes, failures, high points and tragedies are all described, with typical Aussie honesty and humour.
Fully illustrated, with many previously-unpublished photos, maps, cartoons and colour profiles.
