Table of Contents:
The book contains many pictures and is similar in desgin to all
previous and future Jane's Recognition guides. It provides the technical
data and pictures all in one page. It provides aircraft dimensions,
weights, performance, and armament information. Photos and graphic
representations assist in aircraft identification. Aircraft are
logically grouped making searches for a particular airframe easy.
Anyone working the flightline, and/or coordinating airshows will
find this information invaluable when trying to establish parking
plans. Also in all previous guides, as in this one, there are several
still very popular and numerous planes missing. For example, the
Piper Comanche has never been listed ( Only the Twin Commanche )
I still see a lot of Comanches around. I would like to see these
changes ,ie. more technical data and a more uniform listing of the
technical data, in future guides.
