From Library Journal:

This book has been produced with the help and endorsement of the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. It is a success in every respect; the articles, contributed by expert and renowned aviation writers, are well written and accompanied by beautiful photographs. The book covers significant developments in flying from the Wright brothers to the jet age and includes a brief discussion of stealth technology. Each chapter traces the evolution of American and European aircraft--civilian and military, piston and jet, subsonic and hypersonic--in the quest for distance, speed, altitude, size, and excellence. There are interesting accounts of the aviation pioneers and good discussions of aircraft design, performance, and aerodynamics, and power plants. For those who can afford it, this is an excellent book, both fun to look at and a tremendous educational resource.
