Great Aircraft Collections of the World presents in one volume the cream of the world's 700 public aircraft museums and celebrates man's great achievement of the twentieth century: human flight. The seventy magnificent collections have been carefully chosen to feature those which have gathered together a broad spectrum of aviation history under one roof and those which maintain fleets of historic aircraft that can be seen in their natural element - the air.
Spanning four continents and including major collections in the United States of America, Europe and Australasia, every entry is packed with interesting facts about the history of the collection and the aircraft it displays - as well as including a complete listing of all the aircraft on display. For those planning a visit, each entry acts as a guided tour and tells you the opening times and how to get there. The 230 photographs - mostly taken by the author-vividly create the atmosphere of each collection.
