Presented in a handsome padded vinyl edition emulating a leather-bound flight log, this abundantly illustrated album combines two popular titles from the National Air and Space Museum, taking readers inside the cockpits of 84 remarkable aircraft—closer even than museum-goers could see them. In the Cockpit spans the history of powered flight, from the Wright brothers' 1903 Flyer to the edge of space with Burt Rutan's SpaceShipOne, including the Piper Cub, Boeing's 707 prototype, the tiny Bede BD-5B, and the Concorde; In the Cockpit II focuses on the fighters, bombers, and experimental aircraft of World War II, from the B-17 Flying Fortress to the jet-powered Messerschmitt 262.
