Behind-the-Scenes look at Incredible Technological Leaps
Reviewed in the United States on February 21, 2017
A fabulous accounting of, not only the development of the F-117 Stealth fighter, but also the extensive history and details surrounding the U-2 high Altitude photo recon flyer, as well as the SR-71 Blackbird. Lots of anecdotes, as well as personal observations by actual pilots and high government officials, regarding the efficacy and impact of these revolutionary aircraft. If you have any interest in the behind-the-scenes development of bleeding-edge technology, this book is a gem. I read it when it first came out, and finally realized I could no longer locate my original copy, so, I purchased this replacement. It was everything I remembered. Contains some good black and white photos, as well as enough numbers to be impressive. (SR-71 on it's final Record-setting flight, covered the entire the continental US with a single, continuous, sonic boom).
Primarily focusing on the F-117 Stealth, it has sizable portions devoted to the U-2, and the SR-71 Mach 3 Spy Planes. Truly incredible developments in the World of Aviation.
A great read.
