Description

You are interested in aircraft? Then why not indulge your interest to your personal benefit? Here is a book that explains the aircraft markings of every country of the world and uses them to reflect the worldwide changes that have taken place over the past fifty years. It cannot fail to improve your education.

 

International organizations (e.g. U.N.O., N.A.T.O., Red Cross, etc.), federations, unions, commonwealths, dominions, monarchies, republics, states, condominiums, free cities, protectorates, colonies, principalities — all have had jurisdiction over aircraft operated by, or within, their respective spheres of influence, and all had aircraft distinctively marked and indicative of their status. Would you recognize all these markings ?

 

Consider the revolutions in Iraq, the dissolution of the Central African Federation, the change from Egypt to the United Arab Republic, the emergent African nations, the attainment of independence of former British, Dutch, French and Portuguese colonies, the division of Korea, Vietnam and the two Chinas ; all have been reflected in the insignia, emblems and registration of their aircraft. Thereby a new angle is provided on current affairs and world history.

 

Aircraft markings of the independent republic of Upper Volta are red, white and black, because the three main rivers of the territory are the Red, White and Black Volta. The Sudan has service aircraft in blue (for the Nile), green (for the belt irrigated by the Nile) and yellow (for the desert sand of the main territory). A principality like Liechtenstein has its aircraft, like its posts and telegraphs, administered by neighbouring Switzerland, and thereby they bear Swiss registration letters. Did you know that? Such geographical facts are presented through the medium of aircraft markings.

 

World history is reflected in the markings of so many nations, whose aircraft markings are based on the national flag, whose origins, where appropriate, are described in this magnificent book, the first of its kind.

 

You can improve your general knowledge by understanding the significance of national insignia, airline motifs, unit badges, crests and emblems that adorn ....
