About this item

In any specialized subject, detailed trivia (technical, or otherwise) is sought and prized by enthusiasts worldwide. Interesting but little-known facts have been part of aviation lore since that industry first began in the early 1900s, and today's digital aircraft are no different when it comes to this interest. Modeled after successful automotive books on the same theme, this book contains interesting and little-known facts about all aspects of aviation, written by a host of contributing authors, all of whom are well-respected experts in their fields.

This book provides an insightful and in-depth look at aviation history by highlighting many little-known, yet very important aviation facts. Stories are organized by category, such as military, commercial, and sport aviation. Other popular topics include pilots and personalities, aviation movies, TV shows, and model building. More than 100 excellent photographs serve as visual highlights complementing the text.

Although individual aircraft may have interesting technical histories, there are many small details that are actually vital to that aircraft's success or failure. This book brings those types of facts to the forefront, giving the reader a plethora of compelling data and information that will broaden their understanding and appreciation of aviation in general, plus aircraft and the people who make them fly.
