A brand new recognition guide from the world renowned Jane's information group. Covering all aircraft, both operational and grounded to the 1970s this is the perfect book for all those who love vintage aircraft.
This compact yet comprehensive book covers the top 500 vintage aircraft in existence and features all colour photography.
In the same style and format as, and building upon, the Jane's Recognition Guide series, this is the ideal book to take along to aviation airshows and museums around the world.
This is far more inclusive and has a far larger range of entries than Jane's Historic Military Aircraft (1997) as it goes beyond just featuring types that can still fly to include all the aircraft greats that you will ever want to see. Therefore WWI will also be covered, rather than focussing purely on WWII onwards.
Each entry has a photograph with specifications and recognition details as well as a brief history of the type.
