It would be idle to try and sum up the whole history of this, the most famous aircraft manufacturer in the world, but suffice to say no less than 38 Boeing models saw service in WWII alone, including of course the Flying Fortress and B-29 Superfortress. In 1927, the first Boeing, the 40A biplane, delivered the US mail, with a range of 650 miles; today the 747-400 can cover 9000 miles at a cruising speed of 615 mph. 70 years of big jets, and Mike Badrocke has produced meticulous cutaway artwork of all the major types from the B-52 to the 777. With the expert commentary of Bill Gunston, this is an important visual work of reference for the modeller and for anyone who wants to get "inside" what amounts to the whole history of military bombers and commercial jet aircraft manufacture.
