Airlife's Classic Airliners:- Boeing Stratocruiser
|INSIDE:||Full colour throughout|
Boeing's Model 377 is arguably the definitive design of the great propliner era of the 1950s. Though it had none of the sleekness of the Lockheed Constellation - nor the longevity of the great Douglas pistons - the Stratocruiser was the most statesmanlike of them all.
The Stratocruiser story is not a straightforward one - it sprawls in many directions, all of which will be found in this volume. Inside you will find the full story of the 'Strat' from its evolution and design, to its technical specifications and more - illustrated by classic photography that will sweep you back to the heyday of air travel.
