Opis produktu:

First published in 1998, the A3D Part One covers, as the title says, the development of the extensive Skywarrior series. Known as the "Whale" due to its large size, the twin jet aircraft was designed as the Navy's nuclear heavy bomber from its onset. Weighing in at 70-84,000 pounds the Navy found many other uses for the A3D including electronics warfare, photo, trainer, VIP transport, iron bomb bomber in Vietnam and tanker. All 15-version are presented in text, illustrations and photos as is their usage in the Navy test and development squadrons (NATC, NATF, FEWSG, NASWF, NWEF, NARF, NOTS, NWC, NADC, US Army, Westinghouse, NMC, PMTC, Hughes and Thunderbird Aviation. 315 + b&w photos and 86 illustrations.

The books published by Steve Gintner 's company are great resources for those interested in classic military airplanes, but especially to those who wish to accurately model such things. The A-3 Skywarrior was the first twin jet bomber to be employed regularly in squadron service from USN aircraft carriers from the mid -1950s until the late 70s, although not always as a bomber. A large aircraft, the A-3 soon picked up the nickname WHALE from her aircrew members. The Douglas built aircraft also saw service in a slightly modified version as the USAF B-66 medium bomber until the 1980s.
Many can be seen in aviation museums today as static displays.
This book is the first of at least two to cover the A-3, here in early use by the USN. The photo coverage and detail are fine, but only in black and white photos. Ales included are diagrams from many Douglas A-3 manuals showing details of the operating systems useful to the model builder.
