This book tells the story of a century of powered flight that started when the Wright Brothers first took to the air on 17 December 1903. 100 paintings by a selection of artists illustrate subjects ranging from the earliest wood and canvas aircraft to the most recent stealth bombers.
Although out of print for some time, this is a new, first edition copy from our stores, presented in a blue cloth slipcase with gold block lettering.
