Overview

The Complete Encyclopedia of World Aircraft is an authoritative and highly illustrated volume that lists all the significant fixed and rotary-wing aircraft which have been manufactured since the first decade of the twentieth century. Organized in alphabetical order according to manufacturer, The Complete Encyclopedia of World Aircraft contains all the great military aircraft to have flown since World War I. Thus there are entries for the Sopwith Camel of World War I and, from World War II, the Avro Lancaster, Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Messerschmitt Bf 109, and Junkers Ju 87. Coming right up to date, The Complete Encyclopedia of World Aircraft also lists military aircraft such as the McDonnell Douglas F-15, Sukhoi Su-27, and General Dynamics F-16.

    MONUMENTAL WORK ,BUT...

    This heavy book should be a landmark as reference books go.It is truly monumental.Yet, the Index is completely useless, frustrating, almost insulting.Also,some not unimportant manufacturers and types are missing.These are drawbacks that can be corrected in future editions.Then,may be one can contemplate bying it even at 'new' price.

    A great reference -- when you know where to look.

    An incomparable reference work. Over 2,500 aircraft are listed here -- probably representing over 95% of the airplanes and helicopters ever made. --------- This is nearly an indispensible resource, but badly hobbled by some inconsistency and incompleteness in coverage, and a tendency to lump too many planes together under one listing. For instance, all of the thousands of planes in the Mooney line, from 1-seat Mite to pressurzied turboprop TBM-700, are lumped together in a 2/3-page space, and summarized with a single set of airplane specs -- the same coverage as allocated to just the Candair CL-215 amphibian (only 125 built). --------- The real problem, though, is the horrible "index," which is utterly useless. Rather than listing planes by model number and name, like the indexes in normal airplane-catalog books, it merely duplicates the text's organization (by alphabetic listing of manufacturers), breaking them up haphazardly into a dozen general categories, while providing no clue where to find planes listed under their more-obscure manufacturers. For instance, try finding the ERCO Ercoupe, last built by Mooney (look under Alon). Or the Aerostar (try "Ted Smith"), or any plane in the American Aviation / Grumman-American line (try "Gulfstream American") or Aero Commander line (try "Rockwell Commander," "Gulfstream Commander," and "IAI") ---------- I bought it (on sale), and am glad that I did (I use this book more than any other aviation reference I have, and I have many), and I might have been willing to pay more. But the lack of a genuine index leaves you with a feeling of being cheated. ---------- Nevertheless, if you can pick it up (it's heavy), and on the cheap, buy it. It's an awesome, fascinating and useful aviation resource, and a real treasure.

    Great place for resources

    Being a high school student,(and student pilot) I've found this book to be an excellent resource for various research papers I've had to do. It's great for tracking down each specific variation of a given aircraft. I had no idea how many different models and variations a lot of planes had, like the P-51, and even the Wright Flyer. It certainly doesn't have ALL the data on a particular aircraft, but definatly a good starting place.
