A century of manned flight

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
This vividly illustrated title is a superb pictorial history of the development of powered flight. The book takes the reader from the first tentative flights of the Wright Flyer in 1903 through the events of two world wars and the great postwar years up to the most recent developments in aviation. Arranged chronologically, the book contains 10 chapters, each highlighting the changes and events of a particular period of aviation history, while 'milestones' sidebars summarize relevant key dates. Special double-page features that focus on particularly important aircraft, events, and personalities also appear in every chapter. The book contains more than 400 color and b&w photographs and illustrations which graphically convey the power and beauty of the airplane in its myriad forms.
