The Army Air Corps officially celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007, soldiers having flown helicopters and fixed wing aircraft in support of their fellow soldiers on the ground since the Corps was first created in September 1957, but Army flyers had been taking to the air for many year before that. This publication traces the story of Army flying back through the fifty years of growth and development that have turned the AAC from an observation, reconnaissance, liaison and transport tool into a fully-fledged, battle-proven strike force capable of fielding the most sophisticated equipment and weaponry in the British Army. Foreword by HRH Prince of Wales.
