Description
"100 Years, 100 Planes" unfolds the evolution of aviation in a way never done before. A vibrant photograph of a plane chosen for every year from 1900-2000 is portrayed in unique ways through computer design capabilities showing silhouettes, multiple views, and action collages. From the Wright brothers' first plane in 1900 to the Spirit of St. Louis in 1927 to the planned super-jet of 2000, aviation history is made active and animated before readers' eyes. Each plane photograph is accompanied by fascinating anecdotes about its design, its dazing pilots, and its final fate. This visually-exciting book, full of great stories and telling the history of America through the history of aviation, will set itself apart from the dry aviation texts that currently fill the market. Since it exactly spans the century, from 1900 to 2000, it is one of the few products that can truthfully be called one for the millennium.
