172 pp, 4to (12 1/4" H). Profusely and beautifully illustrated in color and b&w with reproductions of the artist's work. "William S. Phillips is a triple threat in the aviation art world. Not only is he a painter who can portray aircraft with exemplary precision, but he can also place that aircraft in a panorama that rivals the work of the finest landscape artist. To top it all off, he is a master of in-flight action; his detail-ed, soaring work communicates the glory of flight. From the thrill of lift-off, the speed of low-level flying, the power of high level bombing, and the danger of the dogfight, to the extraordinary exhilaration of just flying, William Phillips is your copilot. Through the text of 'Smithsonian' and 'National Geographic' writer Ted Park and rare archival photographs, you'll meet some of the top pilots and war aces. And throught the paintings and accompanying sketches, you can experience air travel like never before. The finest reproduction possible is supervised by the artist to fill these pages with more than eighty full-color pieces of art, plus sketches and drawings direct from Phillips' personal sketches. In addition, there are two three-page fold-outs, to communicate the sensation of flying as no other book can." Faint erased pencil mark at top corner of free front endpaper, tiny dint on top edge of both boards. Dust jacket has minor edge wear.wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing, 1 1/2" closed tear at bottom of rear flap-fold- archivally taped.
