British Aircraft Corporation : A History Hardback
Part of the Crowood Aviation series
The British Aircraft Corporation was formed from The Bristol Aeroplane Company, English Electric, Vickers-Armstrong and Hunting in 1960.
In its short, seventeen-year, life, the British Aircraft Corporation built some of the most important aircraft and missiles of the 1960s, 1970s and beyond: its best-known products included the Jaguar and Tornado warplanes, Rapier missile and One-Eleven airliner.
It was also responsible for the stillborn TSR2 strike aircraft, the 1965 cancellation of which remain controversial to this day.
Most famously, the Anglo-French Concorde supersonic airliner came from the BAC stable.
