518 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated in b&w. "Aircraft procurement by the Navy began (in 1911), and the new air arm grew quickly in size and importance. Although serving somewhat different purposes, and often o perating under very different conditions, U.S. Naval Aviation has complemented the Army Air Corps and later the U.S.A.F. for 57 years. In that time, it has fought three major wars - World War II, Korea and Vietnam - has played a peace-kee p i n g r o l e in many parts of the world, and has supported many important research programmes, such as exploration of the Antarctic and the recovery of returning space satellites. To enable it to perform its many missions, the Navy (together w it h th e U .S . Ma ri n es' air arm) has operated a wide range of operational and support aircraft. All of these types are fully described and illustrated....The main part of the book comprises descriptions of the 125 most significant types of air cra ft , e ac h acc om pan ied b y one or more photographs, and multi-view line drawings by L.E. Bradford. Another 130 types, of less importance in Naval history, are illustrated and described more briefly; separate appendices are devoted to airsh ips and gli der s in N ava l se rvic e.. ..(It) contains chapters on the designation systems used by the U.S. Navy, the colours and markings used on Naval aircraft and a specially-devised designation index providing an immediate cross reference to ever y de signa ted Na val a ircr aft.
