Naval Fighters # 86: Lockheed - Vega PV-1 VENTURA and PV-2 HARPOON
Each issue in this series describes an individual aircraft type. Development and testing are covered as well as its service history. It is illustrated with many photographs (most of them b/w, showing detail-images from inside and outside, photographs covering development / testing and cockpit close ups), reprints from original documents (flight and maintenance manuals), as well as detail drawings, which give a good impression of the structure and the assembly of the type. Each unit in which the type saw service is presented in booklets covering post war aircraft, while the focus of those presenting WWII-types (and the ones produced before) lies in showing their structure.

Short history of the type: The Lockheed Ventura PV-1 AND PV-2 Harpoon was a bomber and patrol aircraft of World War II, used by United States and British Commonwealth forces in several guises. It was developed from the Lockheed Model 18 Lodestar transport.

It served with many other Nation as a replacement for the Lockheed Hudson bombers then in service with the Royal Air Force. The RAF ordered 675 Venturas in February 1940. They were delivered from mid-1942 onwards.

Illustrated throughout with b/w- service- and detail images, scale drawings, along with excerpts from manuals showing many details. Author/s: Ginter, Steve
