Product description

In this book for naval and aviation enthusiasts and historians, Hobbs, 33- year veteran of the Royal Navy and formal curator of the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton (UK), offers a history of carrier ships and shipborne aircraft, beginning with the first take-off from a ship in Virginia in 1914. The text, supplemented by b&w photographs, chronicles the genesis of today's aircraft carriers with particular attention to the specifics of taking off from and landing on a ship.
