From the dust jacket: From the dust jacket: Whereas in many other countries Naval aviation lagged behind the establishment of Army air wings or independent air forces, the U. S. Navy's interest can be dated from 1898 when naval officers joined their Army counterparts on an official board to investigate the potential of Samuel P. Langley's flying machine, the so-called Aerodrome. By 1909, naval officers were enthusiastic over the prospect of aircraft as fleet scouts, and as early as 1910 an officer had been appointed to co-ordinate all aviation matters within the Navy...This important book contains chapters on the designation systems used by the U. S. Navy, the colours and markings used on Naval aircraft and a specially-devised designation index providing an immediate cross reference to every designated Naval aircraft. Aircraft used by the U. S. Coast Guard and the U. S. Marines are also fully covered.; 612 pages.
