This pictorial history covers all of the aircraft shown publicly between 1957 and 1966, with a chapter for each year listing all of the aircraft shown, giving the manufacturer, designation, popular name and serial number. Aircraft range from the X-1B and X-5 to the XB-70, F-111 and SR-71, including nearly all of the fighters from the F-80 through the Century series, plus the Navy types. Transports, including a few civil jets, attack aircraft, trainers, bombers, helicopters, and many unusual VTOL aircraft are also fully covered in the author's more than 600 color photographs.
