Edited by MIKE MACHAT
In any specialized subject, detailed trivia (technical, or otherwise) is sought and prized by enthusiasts worldwide. Interesting facts have been part of aviation lore since the early 1900s, and today's digital-age aircraft are no different. Modeled after successful automotive books on the same theme, this book contains many little-known, yet very important facts about aviation, written by contributing authors who are well-respected authorities in their fields.
This book provides an insightful and in-depth look at aviation history by highlighting aviation facts organized by category, such as military, commercial, and sport aviation. Other popular topics include flight test, pilots and personalities, aviation movies and TV shows, and even models. Although individual airplanes may have their own interesting technical histories, there are many small details that are actually vital to that aircraft's success or failure.
1001 AVIATION FACTS 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. More than 100 archival photographs complement the text.
