Yakovlev Yak-3 is considered one of the best World War 2 fighters, invariably praised by those who flew it in combat for its remarkable performance. The Germans also treated it with respect, which is perhaps best illustrated by Generalleutnant Walter Schwabedissen’s remark: The Yak-3 was a tough nut to crack for our pilots. It outperformed our machines in speed, maneuverability and rate of climb.

In 1936 the D-513 fighter designed by Emil Dewoitine made its first flight.

Unfortunately, the tests turned out to be very disappointing.

This A4 softback album is the first in a two part series focussing on the two of the Colonels’ railways to have been preserved (coincidentally both in Kent), by well known railway writer and photographer Jonathan James. This first volume looks at the East Kent Railway, based a few miles to the north of Dover, and showcases what the volunteers there have achieved in their rebuilding efforts.
