This is an illustrated guide shown in over 100 images. It is an engaging history of the Mustang and Flying Fortress, from their beginnings and early exploits through to the final battles and campaigns of World War II. It includes complete technical specifications detailing dimensions, weights, power, performance and armament. It features over 100 photographs of Mustangs and Flying Fortresses in action, as well as cutaway diagrams showing the interior constructions of these historic combat aircraft. The North American P-51 Mustang and the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress were among many outstanding combat planes of World War II. The first Mustang was designed using an American airframe linked to the first-rate Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, while the most famous B-17 was the Memphis Belle, the first aircraft to complete a full tour of 25 operational missions. This handbook details the design and development of these classic planes, together with personal accounts from the pilots who flew them. Wartime photographs and cutaway diagrams accompany the expertly written text, making this an essential volume for every aircraft enthusiast.
