Some of the photographs are published for the first time ; the information is as up-to-date and accurate as many years of careful research can make it.

Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, the Spitfire, the DC-3 airliner, its modern counterparts like the Tri-Star and Boeing 747 'Jumbo jet', the Concorde supersonic airliner, Russia's MiG fighters, America's Bell X-1 which was first to exceed the speed of sound, the Comet jet-liner, Igor Sikorsky's first successful helicopter….
