From the dust jacket: "As the first comprehensive, illustrated account of the competitive aspects of British flying, British Racing and Record-Breaking Aircraft is unique in recording chronologically in detail over 400 diverse aeroplane types which have participated in the story, many of standard or modified form, others evolved specifically for extreme speed, high altitude or ultimate range. The vigorous, succinct narrative embraces also gliders, balloons and airships, together with extensive descriptions of more than 1,400 events and mention of nearly 2,000 of the celebrated men and women, who, in varying degrees, have achieved distinction flying in them. . . The 470 photographs, many published for the first time, span the entire history, and this outstanding volume is rounded off by tabulated appendices giving technical data, air race results and record flights.
