Duck your head, and climb aboard 120 of the most important rotorcraft ever designed with former pilot and navigation instructor, Robert Jackson. In this comprehensive guide to the history and development of helicopters, Mr. Jackson delivers an authoritative A to Z catalog, from early experimental autogyros and basic designs like the Sikorsky R-4, to classics like the Bell UH-1?the "Huey"?that revolutionized military transport during the Vietnam War and the McDonnell-Douglas A1-1-64 Apache used for combat in the Balkans and Iraq. Each featured helicopter is covered in great detail, with graphic boxes outlining its development, technical specs, performance data, and more. With over 2000 color and black-and-white photographs and artwork, this fascinating history of the helicopter is a memorable flight indeed.
