Ron Mackay’s involvement with military aviation began during the Second World War. The local Coastal Command airfield at his birthplace of Wick, Scotland, provided a wealth of RAF and USAAF designs with which to stimulate his interest, which was subsequently sustained by National Service in the RAF. A working knowledge of German has expanded his field of study into the Luftwaffe. To date, he has published twenty-seven books covering the aforementioned Allied and Axis Air Forces, which include several co-authored examples.
