Description

A comparison between this and the first edition, written by F. K. Mason and M. C. Windrow reveals the sheer pace of modern development in aviation over the space of a few years. This second edition has been completely reset and the text updated and provided with new illustrations and artwork. IUt retraces in detail the development and exploration of flight in, through and beyond the earth's atmosphere. The story progresses from the ancient Egyptians, through to the first ascent of a hot air balloon in portugal in 1709 and finally to the development of hypersonic flight and man's six landings on the moon and skylab. It portrays the men and their craft in sport and competition, commercial aviation and, perhaps more dramatically, in military and maritime flying, both in peace and in war. The book is written by the topmost experts in this field and is entirely re-illustrated with over 200 photographs and maps. There are also 16 pages of full colour. It is designed to provide both the scholar, enthusiast and the general reader with up-to-the minute information and a uniquely fresh approach to man's newest, fastest and most vital mode of transport.
