Each aircraft is given 4 pages which includes commentary by aviation historian Amy E Williams (the artist’s daughter), a 3-view plan drawing with technical specifications and plenty of high quality period photographs. The excellent Ted Williams illustrations are all set against ‘blueprint’ style plans of the relevant aircraft.
