Book Description Jane's Information Group, E-136, 1987. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 4to. Janes. 1987. 256 pgs. Illustrated. DJ has light shelf-wear present to the DJ extremities. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards very lightly rubbed and worn. A fascinating history of Britain's postwar aircraft projects and the advanced technologies they explored. This book gives detail to the many innovative and exceptional prototypes designed and developed by the aircraft giants of Britain and then describes the consequences of cancellations because of budget reductions. The end result was the loss of Britain's leading part in aircraft design, then the bankruptcy of its pioneering aircraft companies, and then the loss of all of those young technologists who would have been carried on their country's pioneering traditions in aeronautical design. A well-written book with lessons for all of us. E-136; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 256 pages. Seller Inventory # 53970
