    I would appreciate a new edition including airplanes like A 400

    I would appreciate a new edition including airplanes like A 400 M and Boeing 787 a. o. When will this edition appear? I'm enjoying discovering curious airplanes whenever I'm travelling through airports.

    This is a Jane's publicaton?

    I have reviewed this book before but the review has disappeared. I write this not as just a reader but as someone who has been in aviation for nearly 15 years both flying airplanes and as an A&P (Airframe & Powerplant: mechanic). I found this book to be a disappointment. Not only are aircraft missing that have been flying for 50 years, and in at least one instance still used as a primary trainer, but there are also aircraft misidentified, such as the entire Cessna 400 piston series which has been placed in the "Business Jets and Turboprops" section. I'm sure this will come as a surprise to the owners, operator's, A&Ps and the FAA.

    Very nice & handy guide

    Anyone looking for a great, easy to grasp yet authoratative guide to today's aircraft can look no further than this book. Each page lists a single aircraft -- from single-engine private aircraft to fighters and airliners -- with an overall photo of the subject. Each listing inlcudes a brief history of the aircraft, specifications, variants, countries operating the aircraft 'military', and a multi-view line drawing of the aircraft. Nice bonuses in the back of the book include a list of civil aircraft registration prefixes by country, and a military aircraft national insignia listing in color. This book is not intended to give detailed info on each aircraft rather, it gives a basic view of the subject for the aircraft enthusiast. This volume lacks info on some of the latest aircraft (such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and India's Tejas fighter), but it has plenty of the aircraft commonly seen in the world today. A wonderful book, sized to fit into a backback for your next trip to the airport, museum, or airshow.
