Tom Cooper is an Austrian aerial warfare analyst and historian. Following a career in worldwide transportation business - during which he established a network of contacts in the Middle East and Africa - he moved into narrow-focus analysis and writing on small, little-known air forces and conflicts, about which he has collected extensive archives. That resulted in specialisation in such Middle Eastern air forces as of those of Egypt, Iran, Iraq, and Syria, plus various African and Asian air forces. Except for authoring and co-authoring more than 30 books - including an in-depth analysis of major Arab air forces at wars with Israel in period 1955-1973 - and over 1000 articles, Cooper is a regular correspondent for multiple defence-related publications. Patricia Salti - from Great Britain - is a widow of Jordanian national hero and Hawker Hunter pilot 1st Lt Muwaffaq Salti, who was killed in an air combat with Israeli interceptors in November 1966. Over the last 40 years, she has developed into a leading historian of the Royal Jordanian Air Force. Her exclusive contacts and insights enabled her to write a number of official publications and also to cooperate in the project that resulted in the Arab MiGs book series.
