Classic Early Jetliners: 1958-1979
Martin W. Bowman (au)
On Oct. 4, 1958, the British Overseas Airways Corp. flew the first transatlantic passenger flight by a jet-powered airliner. Twenty-three days later Pan American followed suit. A new age of quieter, speedier air transport was born. The world would never again be so small & new names would enter every aviation enthusiastís vocabulary -- de Havilland Comet, Boeing 707, Douglas DC-8 to mention but a few. During the 1960s & 70s flying by jet airliner became the norm & the age of the piston-engined airliner waned into insignificance. This book contains color photographs of those pioneering jetliners that changed the pattern of passenger flying for ever. Over 100 full-color photos.
