Illustrated with 200 outstanding colour profile artworks, The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide: Civil Aircraft 1907–Present is the definitive study of non- military aircraft from the early experiments to barnstorming daredevils and on to today’s latest commercial airliners. Arranged chronologically, the book describes in depth the various types from propeller aircraft to airships, from jets to helicopters to supersonic flight. All the key aircraft types are featured, from Boeing 747s to 787 Dreamliners, from seaplanes to Lear Jets, from Concorde to the Soviet Tu-144, from biplanes and triplanes to heavy transport aircraft.

The book also includes extensive sections on lightplanes, firebombers, touring aircraft, business jets, agricultural aircraft, outsize aircraft and freighters. From the Wright Brothers to Charles Lindbergh, from the interwar airliners such as the Junkers Ju 52/3m and Douglas DC-3 to the first commercial jet, the de Havilland Comet, and on to the Airbus widebodies, the book is an expert history of a century of civil aircraft.

With detailed background histories and specification boxes accompanying the 250 full-colour profile artworks and photographs, The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide: Civil Aircraft 1907–Present is an excellent reference work for aviation enthusiasts and modellers.
