The World's Greatest Aircraft

The World's Greatest Aircraft Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Which are the finest aircraft ever to have flown? The finest military aircraft, the finest airliners, the finest planes of today, and yesterday? This book answers these questions comprehensively, and with photographs and illustrations which help convey just what is so special about each aircraft.

Over 250 of the world's most important, influential aircraft, from the first powered aircraft, the Wright Brother's 'Flyer' to Northrop's highly advanced B-2 stealth bomber. Commercial aircraft such as the Douglas DC-3 Dakota and the new A380 double decker Airbus, are detailed as are many of the classic fighters and bombers from World War II, such as the Supermarine Spitfire, North American P-51 Mustang and Boeing B-17 Fortress.

All the essential detail is here. Fascinating histories of the design, development, manufacture, and service life of each aircraft are accompanied by a technical specification highlighting on its most important variants. Each is illustrated by a large and detailed color side view artwork, a three-view general arrangement line drawing, and supported with additional photographs.

Synopsis:

Since the Wright brothers first showed the world how to fly, the innovations made in aircraft technology have been varied and often wildly successful for various reasons. Discover some of the finest aircrafts ever made.

Synopsis:

Our landscape format Encyclopedia series in the 12 x 9 1/4 trim size have been so popular that we have created a more portable format for those who are interested in a smaller paperback edition. Beautifully illustrated throughout in full color. A great value and perfectly sized for gift giving.
