My Opinion:
I love all things aeronautics. Airplanes, Helicopters, Gliders, Parachutes, if it's airborne, I'm interested. I have no idea where I get it from either.
This book is amazing for an airplane lover like me. It has everything, and I mean everything, from the start of air-time to now. The photos accompanying the paragraphs about where the plane came from, really give you a sense of looking back in time. I had a couple, "Whoa!", moments when reading.
I think people of all ages will enjoy this. Of course you do need a slight fascination for the obvious, airplanes, but it pulls in the smallest adorer.

4/5


Recommend? To airplane fans, yes.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
