The World's Greatest Civil Aircraft: An Illustrated History

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Commercial air travel began just over a century ago. In that time there have been groundbreaking civilian aircraft, such as flying boats, the first pressurized cabin aircraft, jet and supersonic aircraft, as well as immense changes in the capacity of a typical airliner: in the 1920s aircraft struggled to carry 20 passengers, today some models can carry up to 800 people. The book includes many types, from cargo transports and freighters, through flying boats, passenger airliners, business jets and supersonic carriers. Packed with more than 200 artworks and photographs, The World's Greatest Civil Aircraft is a colourful guide for the aviation enthusiast.

Glossy pictorial paper dust jacket. Superficial scuffs and marks, small creases to edges. Matching glossy pictorial paper covered boards. Further superficial scuffs and marks. Dark blue endpapers. Woven head and tail bands. Text block is clean and tight.
