A very British airliner which had the potential to be a great success, but ultimately fell short of the mark because of the wrong design. Learn the history of the Herald in this wonderful aviation book.
The Handley Page Herald was developed after World War II to provide a replacement for the venerable Douglas DC-3. However, it was initially designed as a piston aircraft when airlines were now looking at turboprops.
The Herald nevertheless soldiered on with a variety of airlines worldwide until the 1990s, with a significant fondness from crews, passengers and those who had been involved in the aircraft s development.
This book looks back at the development and life of the Herald and the people who flew it.

A comprehensive look at the airlines and colour schemes worn by airlines across Asia which no longer grace our skies, sure to delight aviation enthusiasts.
From the vast photographic archive of aviation journalist Martyn Cartledge, as well as contributions from other accomplished aviation photographers, this book traces these airlines from decades ago right up to recent days and their liveries in full colour photographs, with descriptive histories of each carrier.
Airlines the world over delight in showcasing attractive liveries on their aircraft which reflect their branding and sense of style to the travelling public and those on the ground. The nature of the airline industry means that the colour schemes and familiar names we are used to in our skies often change or disappear for good.
This book traces many of the schemes which were familiar across Europe, including national carriers, leisure airlines from the holiday charter boom, and regional airlines feeding our smaller airports. Many airlines in these pages have now been lost forever, and others continue in a completely revised scheme.
You’ll also see plenty of classic old airliners, such as the Caravelle, Trident, Viscount, Vanguard, Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8.
