222 pp, large 8vo (9 7/8" H). B&w illustrations. "In the early 1960s technicians took the pilot out of the plane's cockpit, put him on the ground at an electronic black box and had him 'fly' spy missions by remotely controlling an pilotless jet airplane. Because of this advanced technique, formerly dangerous intelligence-gathering flights in hostile areas were possible without risking the lives of pilots or the loss of extremely costly manned aircraft. This then is the story of 'Lightning Bugs' and other Ryan reconnaissance drones and the contributions they made in combat in Southeast Asia." Very light browning to edges of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light edge wear, remaider spray on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light soiling on rear panel, minor rubbing, two small edge tears.
