Description

The Me 262 Stormbird Story tells the fascinating tale behind the iconic Me 262 Stormbird jet - one of the most influential of aircraft and the world's first operational turbojet fighter. Faster than any Allied fighter during the Second World War, the Stormbird signalled the beginning of the end for piston-engined combat aircraft, and with the fall of the Third Reich the Allies were quick to seize the surviving Me 262s. Their design directly influenced the post-war development of jet fighters. Packed with little-known facts and figures and featuring lists of preserved examples, this is both a fascinating and accessible read. Author John Christopher is a life-long aviation enthusiast and a professional balloon pilot. He has previously written The Zeppelin Story and Balloons at War for The History Press.show more
