KIRKUS REVIEW

Fighter Planes, Bomber Planes, and Transport Planes have, in previous books, been reviewed by the author. Now the outstanding racing planes of various countries are reported in terms of the significant events in which they participated, their pilots, specifications, and achievements. From the American Curtis Golden Flyer with its record in 1909 of 47.65 mph to the Nzo which in 1957 set a midget record of 213.16 mph David Cooke scrupulously collects and records information which should be of interest to flight enthusiasts and to racing fans.
