The invention of the aeroplane was the dawn of a new way of travelling. Its potential was quickly realised, and aircraft were developed to carry first mail and then passengers, over distances that would have previously taken many hours or even days. Successive aircraft changed how we experience flight and how far we could go, introducing new standards of on-board service. Flying became an experience like no other; modern airliners offer unparalleled levels of comfort and economic benefits for their operators with levels of automation hitherto unimagined. 50 Airliners that Changed Flying presents the exciting airliners which can genuinely claim to have changed air travel, from the early mail planes and piston liners through the emergence of the jet age, to the sleek and ultra-modern airliners of today.

The flying machines that pushed the boundaries of aerospace development. "Dick and Patterson have made unusually fine choices.... Reasonable affection for aircraft is shown throughout this attractive, literate volume. Recommended. General readers." --Choice "The team's selections are defensible, and the illustrations, sidebars, pilot and aircraft profiles, and human-interest stories are all fresh, appealing, and insightful. Recommended for all aeronautical collections." --Library Journal "A close-up survey of 50 of arguably the most remarkable and influential aircraft in aviation history.... Beautifully presented... this book will grace the coffee table of any aviation aficionado." --Airforce Magazine In December of 2019, Vancouver-based airline Harbour Air took to the sky in a 1956 Havilland Beaver retrofitted to fly on battery power. Eschewing gasoline and easily able to fly commuter distances, this old new plane took the first steps of 21st-century flight. 50 Aircraft That Changed the World is about exactly this type of flight revolution. Written by the authors of the widely acclaimed Aviation Century series, it profiles 50 of history's most influential aircraft and their pilots and designers. Now an aviation classic, the book has been reformatted to a smaller size but otherwise remains the same. It begins with the 1905 Wright Flyer III, and moves on to the birth of aerial warfare in World War I, the trailblazers of the interwar years, classic World War II aircraft, the jets of the Korean and Vietnam wars, modern commercial carriers, private jets, experimental designs and new combat fighters featuring stealth technology. Featured aircraft in 50 Aircraft That Changed the World include: Fokker E.111 Charles Lindbergh's Ryan NYP Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Vega Messerschmitt Bf 109 Supermarine Spitfire Boeing B-17 Avro Lancaster De Havilland Mosquito Howard Hughes's Lockheed Constellation Concorde Learjet Boeing B-52 Rutan Voyager. Hundreds of color and archival photographs enhance the informative and entertaining text making this an ideal choice for aviation buffs.

The issue, in case by some miracle you haven't heard about it, is the persistent
belief that if you turn from flying upwind to flying ... s not uncommon to encounter
50-knot winds at 10,000 feet, and higher up you sometimes run into headwinds
— rarely tailwinds ... An airplane can lose flying speed in a wind shear because
wind speed can change more rapidly than the airplane can accelerate or slow
down.

The gripping story of a rapid-fire period of change in aviation. The fourth volume in the Aviation Century series is the dramatic story of the worldshrinking developments in commercial aviation through the end of the twentieth century, in which airliners grew from frail biplanes to huge Jumbo jets. In the process, advanced air travel brought with it worldwide political, economic and social change. In 2004 commercial airlines carried an estimated 1.6 billion passengers. Each new generation of transport aircraft has brought greater reliability, economy and safety, and increased global commerce through technological advances. Each day millions of shipments now travel by air between continents via sophisticated air cargo and air express systems. Other chapters in Winds of Change examine: the wider world of aeronautics private aircraft (personal planes as well as ultralights, sailplanes, hang gliders and parasails) lighter-than-air flight (Zeppelins, blimps, hot-air balloons) rotary wings (helicopters and related craft) the challenges of research and development (from sketch pad to computers; designers, builders and test pilots).

Companies that Changed the World tells the fascinating stories of 50 joint-stock companies or companies based on that model that have exerted a critical influence on the social and economic history of the past four hundred years. As well describing clearly and accessibly the companies growth and influence over time, and profiling the pioneering entrepreneurs who built them, Jonathan Mantle s text is crammed with intriguing and unexpected information: from the role played by the humble pigeon in the history of news dissemination to how a pharmacist s five-cent patent medicine became the world s most powerful brand. Each of the 50 companies profiled has changed and reflected change in the world of its time, in far-reaching and often unexpected ways. Together, their stories amount to nothing less than a concise history of commerce and capitalism.
