Concept Aircraft book. A good look into the aviation world of concept aircraft.

Concept Aircraft book. Oct 28, 2012 Veeral rated it really liked it. Shelves: reference-book, aviation, non-fiction. It never ceases to amaze me the amount of work that goes into the R & D that eventually leads into the development of a new aircraft.

Concept Aircraft : Prototypes, X-Planes, and Experimental Aircraft. This book presents a variety of the most interesting experimental planes. Sure, none of these got very far off the drawing board, but using your imagination they can all soar again. There are a lot of great pictures and illustrations and I like the quaint comparative graphics. The enthusiast will of course find more detailed volumes on many of the aircraft profiled, but for for a general tour the "out there" ones this volume can't be beat.

Though many of these designs never flew, this new book in the Aviation Factfiles series is definitely ready to fly.

New US Air Force planes- Hughs Aircraft planes with ION Engine. Created by product designer Juan Garcia Mansilla, the Fighter Jet was inspired by the props seen in the Captain America movie. This saucer shaped vessel was under development as a method of nuclear warhead delivery during the Cold War.

This is a 'X'-planes book, eXperimental planes in the military inventory. As with the other books I purchased, this too is excellent. Being an avid model builder (among other hobbies and interests), I rely heavily on books, magazines, the internet, for images for color schemes of the models. I have avast collection of books with information photographs of world aircraft. This book is one of them. An excellent addition to anyone who engages in that hobby.

Beautiful, informative book....purchased for our beloved nephew as a graduation gift!

This book was indeed interesting to read, since it compiles some of the best concept aircraft ever imagined and built. However, it should've include more German World War 2 era concept aircraft in this book though.

Remember when you were a kid and every plane seemed out of this world? This book presents a variety of the most interesting experimental planes. Sure, none of these got very far off the drawing board, but using your imagination they can all soar again. There are a lot of great pictures and illustrations and I like the quaint comparative graphics. The enthusiast will of course find more detailed volumes on many of the aircraft profiled, but for for a general tour the "out there" ones this volume can't be beat.

The book just scratches the historical surface on a too-wide variety of experimental aircraft, leaving the reader wishing for more detail on fewer planes. Many of the illustrations are quite nice, and there is a fine sprinlking of fascinating factoids. The arrangement is alphabetical rather than chronological (why?), and the writing is marred by numerous typos and puzzling graphical performance comparisons. Still, it makes an interesting few evening's reading, and it looks great on the coffee table! It's just too cheap not to have one.

I'm a aerospace engineer with 30 years in the biz. I'm pretty familiar with a lot of unusual craft, and this book (sometimes very briefly) lists some I've never seen mentioned in decades. With good photos and illos.

It was not the book I wanted plus the pages were stuck together and torn plus the pictures that I looked at of the customer photos were of a different book, the book I wanted...
