Written by an eminent aviation journalist, this book has been carefully planned to act both as a programmed learning system and as an indispensable guide to the recognition of over 400 types in service today (1979), from Mach 2 interceptors to agricultural aircraft. Each page is designed for ease of information retrieval, showing the aircraft in three-view silhouette with a clear half-tone illustration, basic data and a brief history. Derek Wood (1930-2003) was, for more than 30 years, the doyen of aviation specialists in Fleet Street and enjoyed a reputation of unimpeachable integrity.
