Combat Aircraft of the United States Air Force
Rare Photographs from Wartime Archives
The United States relied on British and French aircraft designs during the First World War, but during and after the Second World War developed a pre-eminence in military aircraft design and manufacture that has continued up to today's cutting-edge models, such as the bat-winged B-2 stealth bomber. This volume is a succinct and highly illustrated guide to the most notable aircraft deployed, including classics such as the P-51 Mustang and B-52 Stratofortress.

RAF at Home
The History of RAF Air Displays from 1920
Seeking to improve the public perception of the fledgling RAF, and even justify its existence as a separate service, the first Hendon Air Pageant was organized in 1920 and was soon established as a popular annual event. Examining the history of RAF displays from these beginnings, and the first Battle of Britain memorial 'at home' days, to the present day, this book includes archive photographs and detailed appendices cataloguing participating aircraft.
Military Aircraft of the 1970s
Alongside new developments in military aviation during the 1970s, many of the aircraft of previous decades were still operational. There was therefore a wide variety in service, from the Meteor to the F-14, the Beverley to the C-5 Galaxy. This portfolio of over 300 colour photographs demonstrates the many variants and types, as well as considering the different camouflage markings and liveries that identified the squadrons and air forces to which they belonged.
