From the cover: Today we take air travel for granted: it is a vital and integral part of 20th century life. It is sometimes hard to remember that it has not always been so.
The story of commercial air transport really began after the First World War, when surviving wartime bombers were crudely converted to carry passengers. In these fascinating pages the development of passenger-carrying aviation from these makeshift beginnings to the multi-million pound commercial air transport service of today can be traced. All the principal aircraft which have figured in its dramatic and sometimes controversial history, from early pioneers like the Hercules and the immortal DCS, to the supersonic airliner Concorde and the hugely successful Airbus are featured here. Each is illustrated in painstakingly accurate detail, and its development and commercial career described in Kenneth Munsons topical and authoritative text. This book brings together in one volume Kenneth Munsons two-part history of the worlds airliners, newly revised and updated. It will be an important addition to every air transport enthusiasts library.
