Aircraft by David Rendall
A fully revised edition of the most comprehensive guide to modern aircraft available to the general public. Since the last edition of this book was published (1996), there have been major changes to the world's air forces and significant developments in the civil aviation business. A new generation of military aircraft is entering service, and mid-life upgrades are significantly changing both military and civil fleets. The Pacific Rim nations are investing heavily in modern military aircraft and some are expanding their own manufacturing capability. Jane's Aircraft Recognition Guide provides technical specifications from Jane's All the World's Aircraft (published since 1909, and the acknowledged world leader in aviation reference).
