EARLY SUPERSONIC FIGHTERS OF THE WEST

By 1975 standards the fighter planes of the 1950s seem crude, but the author extolls the breakthroughs this group of ten supersonic superstars represented. In tributes to such as the BAC Lightning, the Convair F-102 Delta Dagger, and the Vought F-8, Gunston charts each plane's design, production, testing, and performance. A wealth of matter for the fancier as well as the scholar.
