Overview

Since their humble beginnings in the early 20th century, airplanes have revolutionized warfare. From the early dogfights above Europe in World War I to the Battle of Britain, the first jet aircraft, spy planes and beyond, aviation has become an essential component of military forces across the world.
 
But do you know your Spitfire from your Messerschmitt Bf 109, or what a B-52 looks like? Do you know how heavy the F-4 Phantom II is, or how quickly it can fly?
 
The Plane Spotter’s Guide uses detailed profile artwork to illustrate and aid recognition of 70 iconic aircraft, and provides specification boxes to give all the technical details.
