Take a journey through time and through the camera lens.
This book is packed full of emotive colour shots of many classic American aeroplanes designed and built between 1916 and 1982. From the Curtiss Jenny to the Cessna Skywagon, you will meet such delights as the Beech Staggerwing, the Grumman Goose, the Stearman PT-17 and the Lockheed Constellation. Thrity-seven different types are included and amazingly they are still flying - and that's where most are photographed, in their natural element - the air.
A superb pictorial coverage of aircraft from 1916 to 1961, from the 'Jenny' to the Lockheed 'Connie' with a detailed history of each particular aircraft. . .Highly recommended. - BMFA News
This is a companion volume to the earlier American Classics of the Air and is blessed by the excellent air-to-air colour photography achieved by the two authors. While it is a colour book it is much more than a collection of pretty pictures with very intelligent narrative covering both the background of the individual aircraft and a history of the aircraft type. A valuable reference book to American classic civil aircraft in addition to being a joy to browse through. Air-Britain Digest
