Summary

Summary

A completely revised, third edition of this guide to modern aircraft. Since the first edition of this book was published in 1996, there have been major changes to the world's air forces and significant developments in the civil aviation business. As we enter into the 21st century a new generation of military aircraft is entering service, and mid-life upgrades are significantly changing both military and civil fleets. Jane's Aircraft Recognition Guide provides technical specifications from Jane's All the World's Aircraft (published since 1909). The new format also allows for additional aircraft and information to be featured.
