Cockpit: An Illustrated History of World War II Aircraft Interiors

Categories: , Tag:

The Second World War was a classic period in the development and perfection of propeller-driven aircraft. Built during the crisis of wartime, these aircraft and the cockpits within them were marvels of technology, ingenuity and design. Cockpit is the first book that puts the reader into the pilot’s seat of these superb classic aircraft.

Cockpit is rich in historical photographs of the insides of dozens of the most celebrated, and feared, aircraft-American, British, Japanese, Russian and German. These vintage photographs and a candid “pilot’s perspective” on each interior offer a unique behind-the-scenes view not only of the extraordinary aircraft, but also of the heroic men who flew them. Cockpits depicted include:

  • Lockheed P-38 Lightning
  • Hawker Hurricane
  • Grumman Wildcat
  • Mitsubishi Zero-Sen
  • Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress
  • Yakovlev Yak-3
  • Gloster Gladiator
  • Messerschmitt ME 262
