9780004721477: Historic Military Aircraft Recognition Guide (Jane's) (Jane's Recognition Guides)

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.

From the Author:

Concise coverage of military aircraft
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.
