Buy Now or Just More Information.

Product Description
The most authoritative and comprehensive history of America’s military aircraft ever published.

From World War I to Iraq.

Profusely illustrated with over 1700 photographs.

Each plane arranged by fighting purpose and appearance in history.

Vital facts on every plane - how powerful, how big, how heavy how fast, how high, and how far.

American Combat Planes of the 20th Century is the only complete reference to all the airplanes that created American airpower. It tells the story of the marriage between aircraft and war. Every combat type built in the United States for the Air Force, Navy, or for foreign governments, is included, together with foreign aircraft bought for American fighting units. American Combat Planes of 20th Century is 758 pages, hardcover, printed on high quality coated stock, with a section of color photographs showing the history of military airplane color configurations.

All the planes designed to attack an enemy with guns, bombs, or rockets are described, along with armed reconnaissance aircraft, and those derived from fighter designs, providing a quick reference for each type. Along with famous mass-production types, like the Liberator, Mustang, and Hellcat, with their major modifications, all the little-known experimental projects are included and compared.

Ray Wagner’s definitive work arranges all those planes by their fighting purpose and appearance in history. Even by simply viewing their photographs page by page, the reader sees the story of combat plane design over the years. Below each picture are the vital facts of each type: the engine’s name and power, how big and how heavy that plane is, as well as how fast, how high, and how far it can go.

As the reader follows the text, he learns who made these planes and when. What could each plane do, how many were made, and where were they used? Why each combat plane was built is the most important question, and is best answered by placing each design in the historical context in which it was developed, from America’s entrance into World War One in 1917 to Operation Allied Force in 1999. World War Two is the center focus, along with insights on aircraft involved with conflicts in Nicaragua, China, Spain, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq.

The bibliography indicates this history’s primary sources and is a readers’ guide to the many books and publications to expand your interests.

    World War II Fighting Jets

    by Jeffrey Ethell, Alfred Price (Editor) 
    A number of jets were flown in World War II and many more were on the verge of being used. World War II Fighting Jets takes readers through the most rapid period of advance in the history of aviation, when during the desperate closing stages of World War II test pilots pushed new technologies up to and sometimes beyond their limits. It chronicles the various jet aircraft used in the war and documents the extraordinary engineering difficulties that were overcome to crate this breakthrough weapons. The authors cover the development and operation of the three German jet types brought into action: the Messerschmitt 163 and 262, the Arado 234, and for a brief period the Heinkel 162. They present the complete history of the British Gloster Meteor fighter and the Japanese Ohka rocket-powered, piloted suicide weapon. They also tell the stories of the jet aircraft that had entered squadron service and were ready for action when the war ended: the American Lockeheed P-80A Shooting Star and Ryan FR 1 Fireball, the German Bachem 349, and the British de Havilland Vampire. A concluding chapter compares the capabilities of the various jet aircraft and assesses how they would have fared had they met in combat. This is a gripping account of a race against time to develop the aircraft that would turn the course of the war.

    (Legends of the Air Series Vol 5) 
    Stewart Wilson 
    Paperback 
    Published 1997 

    Book Description
    The fifth volume in the Legends of the Air series, Vulcan, Boeing B-47 & B-52 examines in detail these three remarkable Cold War warriors which were aerodynamic pioneers of the era. It features around 70,000 words of text, hundreds of photographs, 48 specifically commissioned color side view drawings, technical drawings, specification and production tables, and more.

    There had certainly never before been an aircraft of the design concept of the Vulcan with its incredible delta wing, aptly named the 'tin triangle'. Meanwhile across the Atlantic, Boeing had forged ahead with the then black art of high speed swept wing high altitude bomber design that culminated in the B-47 Stratojet, an aircraft that hopefully would be able to outfly the Soviet fighters of the time.

    Almost before the B-47 was fully operational though its successor, the incredibly long ranging eight engined B-52 was airborne and preparing to become one of the legendary aircraft of the modern era. In fact, on present plans, this multi war veteran should still be flying in 2030, three quarters of a century after the prototype appeared!

    The Eight Jet Wonder

    In October 1948, a senior Boeing delegation arrived at Wright Field to present the definitive proposals for the XB-52 to the USAF's Col Henry 'Pete' Warden of Air Materiel Command's Wright Air Development Centre. Accompanying the Boeing men were truckloads of paperwork on the aircraft.

    At the meeting which had been arranged, the Boeing people were surprised and alarmed to see that Col Warden paid their carefully prepared documentation little attention and instead asked them to come up with yet another concept based around the use of the Pratt & Whitney JT3 (J57 for military) two spool axial flow turbojet engine then under development, and as quickly as possible!

    It's to the company's eternal credit that it didn't simply give the USAF the finger and storm out of the meeting. Instead, the Boeing team retired to the Van Cleve hotel in Dayton on the Thursday of the meeting, locked themselves in for the next four days and returned to Col Warden's office at Wright the following Monday morning to present him with a complete set of typed and bound documents, drawings and even - it is said - a desk top model of a completely new jet powered bomber.

    The design presented to Warden was dubbed the Model 646-49 with wings swept at 35 degrees, engines beneath them in four twin pods, a maximum weight of around 330,00lb (149,700kg), a wing span of the same 185 feet (56.4m) but with greater chord and area, a maximum speed of around 565mph (910km/h) and the ability to carry a 10,000lb bomb load over a 3,100 miles (4,990km) radius.

    Product Description
    Bill Gunston is a Londoner. At the end of World War 2 he was a flying instructor in the RAF, and as such flew many of the aircraft featured in this volume, including several of the Axis types. In 1951, via what is today’s London City University, he joined the editorial staff of Flight International, and in April 1955 was appointed Technical Editor. Here, he worked closely with the artistic genius of Max Millar, Arthur Bowbeer and Frank Munger, and gained a privileged view of just how the great technical ‘heart’ of the magazine ticked. Bill was later promoted to other duties in what had become International Publishing Corporation (IPC), but decided to leave on the last day of 1970 in order to pursue a career as a freelance writer. The rest is history!

    Arranged by designers, this second installment of a two-volume set includes the aircraft of such famous names as Ilyushin, Petlyakov, and Tupolev, as well as lesser-known types. Most books on the subject have been heavy on Western sources and light on firsthand  information, especially pertaining to political backgrounds, design, production, testing, and combat records.. In preparing this volume, the authors combed untapped archives in the Soviet Union to uncover a wealth of data that rewrites long held Western beliefs. The war  records of the aircraft are accompanied by comparisons to Allied and German aircraft of the period, and more than 300 rare period photographs offer an unprecedented review of these fascinating planes. Includes an introduction by renowned UK aviation journalist Bill  Gunston.

    Product Description
    Until the break-up of the USSR, the development of Soviet aviation was kept secret, and it is only in recent years that authors have been able to gain access to so much previously unpublished material. Bill Gunston has taken full advantage of the new openness and this, along with his connections at Tupolev, has resulted in a history of Tupolev aircraft, from the ANT-1 to the Tu-2000. In the early years, Tupolev followed Junker's methods and built a range of metal aeroplanes with corrugated sheet skins. Among these was a range of four-engined heavy bombers, the ANT-9 twin- and three-engined airliners, the very long-range single-engined ANT-25 which made non-stop flights from the USSR to the West coast of North American and the very large eight-engined "Maxim Gorky". The range of twin-engined SB wartime bombers were of Tupolev design. After the war, Tupolev produced the successful Tu-16 series twin-jet and the Tu-20 (Tu-95) four propeller-turbine military types, to be followed by the supersonic Tu-22 jet bomber. Tupolev also pioneered the jet airliner, beginning with the Tu-104 which was followed by the Tu-124, Tu-134, Tu-154. Not so successful was Tupolev's Tu-144, the first supersonic aeroplane to fly. Amongst the latest products is the Tu-204 airliner with Rolls-Royce engines. The author describes all the Tupolev types and many of the projects in detail, employing the Putnam format. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Product Description
    Alexandr S. Yakovlev was one of the most versatile aircraft designers of his age, but he had the misfortune to work in the USSR which made him almost unknown to the outside world. In 1926-27 he built his first aeroplane and from then on he designed structures which were, time and again, ahead of their time. In 1934, he was offered a derelict bed factory which he shortly transformed into a major design and manufacturing plant. From those premises came, to mention just some, a spate of sporting and training aircraft which gained many world-class records: the chief family of Soviet single-seat fighters of World War II, the Yak-1, -3, -7 and -9 of which 36,769 were built. He built the first jet to fly in the USSR and the first Soviet transport helicopters. Later came the principal Soviet radar-equipped interceptors, from which stemmed many other types of tactical twin-jet, including the Soviet counterpart to the U-2. Yakovlev died in 1989, and today his design bureau, still on the site of the old bed factory, is the giant Yak Aircraft Corporation. It produces the most important Russian twin-jet airliner, a diverse group of general-aviation aircraft, an advanced jet trainer and light-attack aircraft and, in conjunction with the Museum of Flying in California, replicas of the Yak-3 wartime fighter. This volume is a detailed analysis of all these and many other aircraft. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
