  • Fascinating Story! Well worth your money
    Verified Purchase

    This book covers a little known niche in US aviation right after World War II when the development of nuclear weapons and ultra-long range aircraft created a desire for aerial reconnaissance beyond the capabilities of previous aircraft. The Author has done an excellent job of telling the story of two little known but technically outstanding aircraft developed to fulfill those requirements. the story line is well told and the pictures and drawings are superb. If you are an aviation enthusiast, you will enjoy your time with this book and as with so many other projects that started too late for fruition in World War II you will find yourself once again pining for "what might have been".
