The AIRCAM AVIATION SERIES of books took a largely pictorial look at classic military aircraft types, with only a short narrative text serving as introduction. A companion series of specials portrayed the camouflage and markings worn by various military air arms and flying units.
After 5-6 pages of concise text introducing the subject, the remainder of each book comprised b+w photographs, 8 pages of colour profile artwork and 3-4 pages of small plan-view tone drawings, showing the upper and lower surfaces of the aircraft illustrated in colour.
