Like new in d/w. Aviation-Putnam Aeronautical Books The world of aviation was undergoing massive change when the Second World War intervened. All-metal monoplanes, pressurised cabins and retractable undercarriages were all being introduced and the days of stately biplane landplanes and flying boats were numbered. The war's end saw the victorious allies, led by the U.S.A. with its extensive military experience, leap ahead with the conversion of transport aircraft for civilian use. The piston engine gave way to propeller turbine and pure jet propusion, and the development of technology led to the rapid growth in civil aviation. This impressive volume tells the exciting story of the development of passenger transport. UL-XXXXXX. Large format, 263pp, c300 b/w photographs, line-drawings, etc.
