The aircraft featured in this book reflect the substantial changes that took place in the aviation industry during the final quarter of the last century.
The few remaining piston-powered ladies of the airways eventually bowed out to the first generation of jet airliners.
Later, during the last decade, that generation in turn had mainly given way to today's fly-by-wire, fuel-efficient and powerful twinjets.
If you are looking for a feast of classic airliners and airline colour schemes; this book is for you.
