Published in 150 weekly parts of 20 pages each, between 1976 and 1979, making a total of 10 bound volumes. The first 8 volumes comprised an A-Z survey of famous aircraft manufacturers, aircraft types, aviation personalities and air battles under the headings: Trailblazers, War in the Air, Theory of Flight, Famous Aeroplanes, Fighting Airmen.
The last 2 volumes comprised a compilation of pilot’s impressions of famous aircraft (vol 9: In the Cockpit) and a world air forces survey (vol 10). Both of these latter were later republished in book form. Well illustrated with large b+w and colour photos, colour 3-view drawings etc. Wide in scope but lacking in detail.
