The largest and heaviest transport aircraft, the highest flying reconnaissance aeroplanes and the fastest and most agile fighters are all powered by jet or gas-turbine engines. Throughout its first hundred years the technology of aerospace has moved ahead every single day. This updated edition of the popular book by aviation expert Bill Gunston examines all of the recent developments, such as Boeing's announcement to abandon plans for a stretched 747, to cut back on future development of the 767, and to develop a possible future passenger aircraft called the Sonic Cruiser. Gunston Uses language understandable to those without an engineering background, to describe how jet and gas-turbine engines and their derivatives work, and explains the differences between jet, gas-turbine, rocket, ramjet, turboprop and helicopter turboshaft engines.
