New York Funk & Wagnalls 1968 First American Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good 
318 pp, 8 3/4" H. "(D)escribes in great detail the 40 types of Soviet transport aeroplanes and helicopters which have been produced since the end of the Second World War. As far as possible the design history, layout, structural characteristics and service life of each type has been fully covered. Each type is illustrated by rare photographs and there are three-view drawings of the most important craft. (C)ontains much hitherto unpublished information and gives for the first time a realistic impression of the vast Soviet air transport system. Particularly detailed are the descriptions of the jet and propeller-turbine aircraft with which Aeroflot began re-equipping in the late 1950s and of the new types still to enter service. The development of the entire Tupolev jet series is fully described, as are the Ilyushins, the Antonov propeller-turbine transports and the Mil family of helicopters. The appendices show the organization of Aeroflot and the equipment used in different regions, the Soviet routes operated by each type of aircraft, the world records held by Soviet transport aeroplanes and helicopters, and the fleets of Soviet aircraft - some 1,200 individual aircraft being listed." Tiny bump to top corner of approx. pages 250 to end of book, slight lean to spine, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very small bump to top corner of rear cover - minor tiny bump at other corners, tiny bump to top edge of front board.
