Haynes Manual, what does everyone think of them?
Any thoughts on the Haynes manual books on military aircraft? I picked up the one for the RAF EF-2000 Eurofighter. it was nice, but didn't impress. Has anyone read any of their other books from the series?
Figured since it was based on a newer aircraft, limited on what they could put out and go in-depth on.

Hayne's manuals for aircraft are maybe fun for entertainment. For cars, not so much. I would suggest if you need info to work on your own vehicle, get a factory service manual. I have the Hayne's manual for both of my Jeeps and wound up buying FSM's for both. They Hayne's just didn't have the detail info.

Not looking to repair a vehicle, just noticing that Haynes is coming out with manuals for aircraft and I wasn't too impressed with it. Was wondering fore I get the one for the F-86 or the B-17.
As for the one for my 2002 Ford Mustang... I was very impressed. :)

I've read a few. They are nothing like the Haynes auto repair series other than the name and the cover design style.

There are good ones and not so good ones. It depends entirely on the author. Go to or similar and read the reviews for the edition you are considering.

I've been doing that already, just wanted to get a feel from the people here on their thoughts. Since I picked up Revell's 1/48 B-17G and Airfix 1/48 P-51D. Been on a book fix for those subjects as of late.
