Description

Since aviation's early years, pilots, designers, and manufacturers have sought to break world records for notoriety or technical advancement. This book tells of famous record-breaking flights throughout history, focusing on the exciting time following World War II when new speed, altitude, and endurance records were broken on an almost-routine basis. Supplementing these stories are detailed explanations of the technological innovations that made those record-breaking aircraft possible.

From swept wings to afterburning turbojet engines, and "Coke-bottle" fuselages to high-altitude pressure suits, aviation progress has always been measured with breakthrough advances in the technology of flight. This book, written by a former†† crewmember of the triplesonic SR-71 Blackbird, takes ††you through the annals of aviation history with spell binding stories of world-record flights and explanations of how †advanced technology played a pivotal role in making these †records happen.

Illustrated with excellent archival photographs and technical illustrations, this book explains in detailed, but easy-to- understand terms how specific advances in aircraft design such as powerplants, aerodynamics, flight control systems, instrumentation, and life-support systems led to ever-improved record-breaking aircraft. A comprehensive five-part appendix serves as a handy reference guide that documents world †††speed, altitude, and distance records as well as the legendary aircraft and pilots who flew them.
