1 Howell, Ross A. , Jr. and, Valenzi, Kathleen D. (editors) Classics. U. S. Aircraft of World War II.
1987 096168786x / 9780961687861 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
223 pages, well illustrated in color, cloth, DJ, very good. 9 by 12 inches. From the estate of aviation collector Colin Kidd and with his embossed label. Introduction By Walter J. Boyne. Photography by Mark Meyer. From the DJ: "Metal sculptures in a hangar, kinetic works of art in flight, the U. S. Fighters and bombers of World War II captivate us as much today as they did 40 years ago when a golden age of aeronautical engineering and production launched tens of thousands of them into the skies of Europe and the Pacific. Today's classics, they are rare vestiges of a proud heritage. TIME Magazine photographer Mark Meyer has captured the essence of these machines in his photographs for the book, 'CLASSICS'. ~ Complementing Meyer's photography is an eloquent introduction written by Walter J. Boyne, retired director of the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, who discusses the development and preservation of classic U. S. Warbirds of WWII. CLASSICS includes interviews with a number of pilots who flew aircraft during the war. ~ Classics closes with a useful reference section that includes manufacturer, dimensions, weight, engine, ceiling, range, armament specifications, along with brief aircraft histories, three-view line drawings, and photograph identifications of 27 different aircraft types."
