U.S. Civil Aircraft Series, Volume 8
This is the definitive history of U.S. civil air-craft, a classification in 1927 and continued through 1948, when the certification system was changed. An invaluable resource, this series is a tribute to the more than 800 aircrafts it describes and illustrates, as well as to the people who made them famous. Nineteen years of intensive research is represented in the series--every aircraft is explored down to the last river. Juptner provides specifications, performance figures, production information, and prices in meticulous detail. Outstanding photography, aircraft and company histories, and the names of designers round out the books in this one-of-a-kind collector's series.
