The Airliner World Book of the Boeing 747 Reviews
When I first saw this book, my reaction was the same when I saw my first Boeing 747 (when the plane was still brand-new) - Wow! That thing is huge! That is probably the main weakness of the book; it will require a tall space on one's bookshelf. The publisher should have gone for a smaller format, say something like 12 by 9 inches and made it a little thicker. Now, one would expect an overview to be just that, an overview. In this respect, however, "The Airliner World Book of the Boeing 747," exceeded my expectations. There is a chapter for every major variant of the big fellow, the -100, SR, SP, -200, -300, and -400. Only the newest version, the -800 is not included, but that variant had not yet flown when the book was published in 2002; nevertheless, this book is more up to date than most others on the Boeing 747, a good thing to keep in mind.
Beautiful book. Really nice colour photos, good text, lot of information, fine paper. Only one problem: it is very expensive.
Excellent book, very good information and Photographys
True Quality book. Amazing images and info. Recommend for anyone interested in the Queen of the Skies
