9780061684340: In the Cockpit 2: Inside History-Making Aircraft of World War II

“Having spent most of my life in the cockpit, I am well acquainted with the sheer magnificence of these machines. World War II ushered in a new era in aviation and military technology, and this book gives an exclusive look into some of the most famous planes in the history of flight.”
— Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger

The follow-up to 2008’s In the Cockpit, this gorgeously designed book focuses specifically on the interiors of World War II aircraft. In the Cockpit II features rare aircrafts from the Smithsonian’s collection and a visual viewpoint of cockpits that museum goers never get to see, plus a foreword by distinguished pilot Robert A. Hoover. A perfect gift for Father’s Day and holidays!

From the Back Cover:

In the Cockpit II: Inside History-Making Aircraft of World War II provides close-up access to the instrument panels, controls, and crew stations of 34 legendary World War II aircraft in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's impressive collection. Using a high-end digital camera with a wide-angle lens and complex shooting techniques that combine digital precision with manual dexterity, photographers Eric F. Long and Mark A. Avino expertly capture every detail of the cockpits, bringing them to life as never before. Insightful text by Smithsonian curators Roger D. Connor and Christopher T. Moore place each cockpit in historical context.
