Fast Jet Fighters
|INSIDE:||136 colour photographs|
Voodoo, Lightning, Starfighter, Thunderchief - emotive names for a new generation of sleek fighter aircraft that more than trebled the speeds at which air combat was fought in the early decades after World War Two.
This was the age in which speed won air battles and when many of the most beautiful aeroplanes ever designed could be seen flashing across the sky.
This book captures the spirit of those halcyon days and brings together rare and often dramatic colour photographs from the era when airspeed and altitude records were shattered almost every month.
