Really a great book for vintage airplane enthusiasts. Every page is labeled "Restricted" as this was cutting edge tech at the time.
Last page has a color beautiful fold-out chart of Flight and Propulsion by Douglas.
Book is in excellent overall condition with light to moderate wear on the covers as to be expected with age. Some very minor foxing on the first few pages. Inside pages are excellent. Has former owners' name written on cover.
