Textul de pe ultima copertă

"Vertical Take-Off Fighter Aircraft" is an illustrated history of concepts, experimental, and operational military VTO & VTOL aircraft. The book starts with wartime German projects such as the Focke Wulf Treibflugel, Heinkel Wespe, and VTO rocket fighters. Postwar projects include US Navy carrier-based VTOL fighters, the French annular wing experiments undertaken by SNECMA, and various other proposals for fighters. In addition to "tail sitters," the author discusses conventionally shaped VTOL designs such as the Harrier, Russian carrier-based Yaks, and the new LockMart F-35 Lightning. This title will be of interest to aviation enthusiasts and modelers.
