Jet fighters had been in the world's arsenal for more than a decade before commercial jet transports became commonplace in the 1950s. This colorful book captures many of the aircraft that graced the world's commercial routes in the 1960s -- when turbojets began to replace turboprops in earnest -- through the 1970s, which witnessed the introduction of giant jetliners like the Boeing 747 and the arrival of the supersonic Concorde. Period color photography depicts jetliners from other American companies like Lockheed and McDonnell Douglas, as well as from European and Russian manufacturers. All are accompanied by authoritative development and service histories written by acclaimed aviation author Martin Bowman.
