Aircraft Past and Present

This is an interesting approach to the highlights of aviation history. The book is produced very nicely on gloss paper with many photographs and concise text by a team of authors and an editorial team. There are some full colour, full page and double spread, images, but illustration is mainly by thumbnail images of various sizes. – Recommended

This is a huge subject covered in only 143 pages in a high quality hard bound large format book. As 
the subject is extensive, but concisely covered, there are bound to be those who feel a particular 
important aircraft has been missed, or an aircraft that is not worthy of inclusion is depicted. The
 authors and editors have made a very good job of their coverage and this is a book that deserves to 
be read. Some text is now slightly dated but the overall feel of the work is encouraging. Enthusiasts 
will buy this as part of an extensive aviation history library but it is aggressively priced and this is a 
particularly good starting point for those wishing to expand their aviation knowledge and especially 
good for the younger reader in combining an authoritative text and illustration that is very readable 
and offered at such a low price. 

As is usual, we have shown the recommended price but Amazon and other retailers are offering a good
 discount, in some cases for a limited period.
