Summary

Summary

Boeing claimed the 707 as the airplane that made the world smaller and horizons larger. The DC-8 was developed a little later than the 707 and as a result was always playing catch up. Despite being a fine aircraft, the VC10 was too late to seriously challenge the 707 and DC-8, but today soldiers on in military service with the RAF as tankers and transports. This detailed work is filled with highlights of each aircrafts development plus a broad overview of its operational history. Legends of the Air 6. Sftbd., 8 1/4x 11, 186 pgs., 225 bandw ill., 60 color.
