LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

North Branch, Minnesota, U.S.A.: Specialty Press, 2008. 276 pages, 100 colour & 200 mono photographs plus 50 technical drawings. When World War II came to a close, piston-powered fighter aircraft were at their zenith and Navy fighters, such as the Grumman F6F Hellcat and Vought F4U Corsair dominated the skies over the Pacific. As these fighter designs reached their peak, a new propulsion technology was being developed that held great promise. When introduced, the first jet aircraft were underpowered, and in many ways inferior to propeller-driven aircraft of the time. Naval Air Superiority examines the Navy's internal struggle to adapt the jet engine to its style of warfare as well as the development and evolution of carrier-borne fighters, their airframes and engines, from the closing days of World War II through Vietnam. This book includes engine cut-aways, aircraft comparison diagrams, and details the safety improvements made to aircraft carriers to enable higher speed and highgross weight jet operations.. First Edition. Laminated Pictorial Boards. New/New.
