This is an illustrated history of aircraft carriers and the naval aircraft that launch from them, from the first airships and zeppelins through to today's modern warships and jets. It features 1,100 wartime and modern identification photographs of the most important aircraft carriers and naval aircraft from around the world. It includes two directories covering 170 aircraft carriers and 130 aircraft, from the behemothic Nimitz-class carriers of the United States Navy to World War planes such as the Supermarine Spitfire and the MiG-29K. This meticulously researched and illustrated book focuses on the evolution of aircraft carriers and naval aircraft. It features chronological histories and comprehensive directories of the world's most important aviation ships and aircraft, including the first ships to launch primitive aircraft; biplanes that were catapulted from converted destroyers; modern warships capable of carrying jets and helicopters; and state-of-the-art jets that are unique for their vertical take-off ability. With more than 1,100 magnificent photographs, this book provides historians and enthusiasts with key information about the world's greatest aircraft carriers and naval aircraft.
