1000 Preserved Aircraft in Colour by Gerry Manning
This book features photos captured by the author during the last 25 years or so as he traveled to aviation museums all over the globe. Also here are the redundant aircraft that 'guard' the gates of military bases the world over and lovingly restored 'warbirds'. More than a thousand color photographs is accompanied by an informative caption, and arrangement in type order enables development to be traced. Inevitably, military aircraft predominate but vintage civil types and classic airliners are also featured.
Gerry Manning is a well-known English photographer who specializes in civil aviation. He is the author of several books and articles on the subject and travels widely in search of the interesting aircraft and airlines around the world.
