"X-Traordinary Planes, X-Traordinary Pilots isn't your ordinary aviation book. Featuring the award-winning Aerocatures of renowned aviation artist Hank Caruso, this book represents a unique combination of humor and history. For more than 60 years, the image of the test pilot has represented iconic excitement in film and fiction. In similar fashion, the exotic look and performance of experimental aircraft has energized the imaginations of young and old alike. The illustrations in this collection represent many of the most interesting research aircraft that have taken to the air since the end of World War II. These are accompanied by the real-life stories of many of the test pilots that made it possible for these aircraft to do their jobs. Aviation buffs, curious youngsters and anyone who has ever felt their heart race at an air show fly-by will find this book fascinating and rewarding." -- the publishers.
