MODERN AIR TRANSPORT:
                     WORLDWIDE AIR TRANSPORT FROM 1945 TO THE PRESENT

Edited by Phillip Jarrett 

 

 

The world of aviation was undergoing massive change when the Second World War intervened. All-metal monoplanes, pressurised cabins and retractable undercarriages were all being introduced and the days of stately biplane landplanes and flying boats were numbered.The war's end saw the victorious allies, led by the U.S.A. with its extensive military experience, leap ahead with the conversion of transport aircraft for civilian use. The piston engine gave way to propeller turbine and pure jet propusion, and the development of technology led to the rapid growth in civil aviation. This impressive volume tells the exciting story of the development of passenger transport.

SECRET AIRCRAFT DESIGNS OF THE THIRD REICH

by David Myhra

This outstanding book offers a superb collection of photographs of scale models from contributors throughout the world, and digital images by Mario Merino and Andreas Ott of secret German designs. Myhra gives the reader much more than pictures of proposed German aircraft projects, the total number of German projects described being in excess of 400. From Blohm und Voss with over 200 project designs, he examines Wolderman Voight's Me P.1101, Gotha's Go P.60, the Horten brother's Flying Wings and Alexander Lippisch's many projects. Although over 400 proposed aircraft were on the drawing board when the war in Europe ended in May 1945, only a handful had reached the prototype stage.
