Aviation Book Series


Mini In Action

The Mini In Action series was a spin-off from the very successful Aircraft in Action series, featuring a number of books almost literally half the size of a regular Aircraft in Action book. Each title nominally focussed on a lesser-known aircraft subject that couldn't justify the number of pages required for inclusion in the main series - although how the A-10 qualified in this way is a mystery!

These titles probably have proportionally more text than the main series, since the subjects are relatively unknown, but the emphasis in each book remains on the illustrations. The development history of the aircraft is described in a clear and informative manner, with side view line drawings illustrating each variant. Due to the size of the pages, the 3-view 'scale' drawings included are reproduced to a rather small size. Numerous b+w photographs show the aircraft from many viewpoints and also include close-ups of interesting design features and also the cockpit. The centre pages show a number of colour profile drawings - the only colour in the book.
