About this Item

1st ed., 1991. 239 pp., photo & other plates. D.j., 24 x 15cm. FINE. Few people have the authorís grasp of aviation history, his wide knowledge of technical developments and his insight into international aviation. This book draws on a wealth of inside knowledge to throw light on 45 moments in aviation history, from the first flying machines and strange deaths of First World War fighter aces to the first jet fighter, the Comet, and the ill-fated TSR 2. The author raises many fascinating questions such as: How could a giant airship vanish without trace? Why did Britain throw away the first 1,000-mph aircraft? Why were aircraft that equipped the Luftwaffe unknown in Britain whilst others that never existed were described in detail in British magazines and recognition books? An unfailingly entertaining collection. Bookseller Inventory # C130B410
