Overview
-

The Thunderjet in Italy continues the success of the new book by di Luigino Caliaro. The twenty-one chapters describe in detail the F-84G Thunderjet, from the genesis of the project to use in the USA with the USAF, through the Korean War, to arrive at delivery and use in Italy. Luigino Caliaro accurately describes the use of the F-84 in the Aerobrigate. An important chapter with mostly unpublished photos, is dedicated to the shooting competitions of the 56th TAF, typical of the fifties. All the acrobatic chasers who used the Thunderjet are told how an important part of the book is dedicated to the description of the cockpit, armaments, chapters that talk about the Thunderjet in flight, the engine and the color of the F-84G. The book closes with a chapter dedicated to the construction of a F-84G in 1/48 scale.

"From the useful text to the copious amount of period photographs, this is an excellent reference on the F-84 Thunderjet in Italian service."
