This is a companion volume to Farnborough: 100 Years of British Aviation by Peter Cooper, which was published to celebrate the centenary of the home of British aviation. This new book concentrates on the activities of the Fleet Air Arm secton, the Royal Aircraft/Aerospace Establishment at its first home, Farnborough. Amongst the development work carried out was the technology required to enable ship borne aircraft to fly, and more importantly to land at sea and this is still in use today by Navies around the world.
