Since their humble beginnings in the early 20th century, aircraft have utterly transformed warfare. From the early dogfights above Europe in World War I to the Battle of Britain, the first jet aircraft to spy planes and beyond, aviation has become an essential component of military forces across the world.
In Plane Spotter’s Guide, aviation expert Tony Holmes brings together the essential details of 70 iconic aircraft, including the Sopwith Camel, the Spitfire, the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the P-51 Mustang and the F-4 Phantom. Using detailed profile artwork to illustrate and aid recognition of each aircraft, and specification boxes with a wealth of technical details, Plane Spotter’s Guide is the ultimate guide to military aviation.
