Summary

Summary

An illustrated guide to civil aircraft that have been flown in every country of the world. It includes 100-plus individual planes used by commercial airlines from the giant Guppy cargo plane to the single-seat racing plane, from the glamorous business jets to the classic Boeing 747. Organized in alphabetical order by manufacturer, entries include a short history of the company, an account of each model's design, development and distribution, as well as color and b&w photographs and artwork profiles.
