The fifth title in the immensely successful Jane’s Recognition Guide series, the Vintage & Veteran Aircraft Recognition Guide is a comprehensive directory of all veteran aircraft flying today.
Restoration of historic aircraft is now big business. Although it costs £20,000 per hour to keep a World War II Spitfire airworthy, the world’s biggest veteran aircraft collection, the Confederate Air Force has more airplanes than most modern air forces! Its B-29 Superfortress has been gracing air shows with its unique presence for 25 years.
Vintage and veteran aircraft range from pre-World War I types like the Bristol Boxcar to relatively modern jets like the F-4 Phantom. As modern air forces update their squadrons, so more aircraft types will find their place in the Vintage & Veteran Aircraft Recognition Guide, the perfect companion volume to the hugely popular Jane’s Aircraft Recognition Guide.

This volume is unique in its coverage of military aircraft for it details all surviving airworthy types dotted across the globe today. From World War 1 biplane designs to recently retired jet fighters like the F-4 Phantom II, this book covers all ten decades of military aviation in the 20th century. I have included about 215 different aeroplane types in this book, each with a concise appraisal of the aircraft's development and service history. A full specification also gives details on dimensions, weights, performance, first flight and surviving examples.
