9780811856188: The Aviation Book: A Survey of the World's Aircraft

In an incredible combination of personal passion and exhaustive research, Fia O Caoimh presents a visual encyclopedia of aircraft, with special emphasis on obscure or forgotten planes. In exquisite illustrations of planes and helicopters, each accompanied by detailed technical specifications, the author recreated the progression of aircraft, beginning with the early days of flight. Included are the B cker B -133 'Jungmeister,' aerobatic champion of Europe from 1933; the Piaggio P.180 'Avanti,' now associated with the great Ferrari racing marque; the Japanese seaplane Shin Meiwa US-1, able to carry out rescue in 15 ft-high waves; and the legendary Ryan B1-Brougham, 'Spirit of St. Louis,' first to cross the Atlantic east to west. The book also features a beautifully illustrated timeline of man's attempts to fly from the myths and legends of ancient times to modern day space exploration. More than 10 years in the making, and with more than 850 illustrations, this unique, engrossing, and heartfelt tribute to aircraft is certain to resonate with professionals, and amateurs alike. Just open its pages and you will be astonished by this labor of love.
