The International Encyclopedia Of Aviation

This book is one of the largest and most ambitious ever published on aviation. Provides a comprehensive and fascinating review of aviation — its history and the key scientific and technological discoveries in its continuing development — together with the exciting story of rocketry and space exploration. The section on the origins of aviation includes chapters on kites, on gliders, and on the first successful powered aircraft of the Wright Brothers and others. The chapter on engines traces the history of power units from steam-drives to the latest fan-jets. Other sections deal with military, civil and maritime aviation, rotorcraft and V/STOL aircraft, and rockets, missles and space vehicles. Also includes special sections on the design of wings and control surfaces, control and navigational systems, supersonic flight, historic flights, air crimes and disasters, a glossary of aviation terms, and much more. Contains more than 1,200 pictures in color & b&w. 480 pages, large-size, hardcover. This book is a one-of-a-kind closeout.
