Description

The World's Fighting Planes presents in compact form the most comprehensive and up - to - date details of all military aircraft flying today* ; the hundreds of types of bombers, fighters, transports and trainers that serve the world's air forces. Not only does this pocketable reference manual describe and illustrate more than two hundred and forty of the aircraft currently in, or entering, service. It includes the machines which exemplify the latest developments in air warfare ; the new faster - than - sound fighters such as the English Electric P.1., the Grumman F9F - 9 Tiger, and the Convair F - 102, the new vertical take - off fighters and the latest jet bombers, including the Russian four jet swept - wing bomber. The more obscure aircraft types that serve with the world's smaller air forces, such as those of Ethiopia, Israel, Spain and Switzerland, all take their place in this most comprehensive of military aircraft reference books.

 

Containing nearly five hundred photographs and detailed three - view silhouettes, The World's Fighting Planes forms an invaluable work of reference for the pocket or bookshelf of all interested in aviation.

 

* 1955.
