ABOUT THIS BOOK: An alphabetical reference to the words, terms and names most often met with in the world of air technology. There are five basic categories, covering aspects military and civil, historical and contemporary: individuals and companies; events; equipment, including aircraft, missiles, and carriers; organizations, agreements, and alliances; and definitions of terms - chosen instruments, airspace, contour flying, etc.
The world of aviation is now so vast that even its own participants cannot keep abreast of its total development and its language, and it is for these people as well as students, government officials, politicians, and journalists, that the book has been compiled.
Written by the author of “World’s Air Forces,” air correspondent for various newspapers and journals, the book is as international as its subject.
