An encyclopaedic four-volume work on every aircraft type proposed, designed or manufactured in Australia from 1884 to the mid-1980s.


"... meticulously researched. I was overwhelmed by pictures and histories of types that were only vaguely familiar or completely new to me ... the work is a veritable mine of information ... in scale and detail, there is nothing in Australia, or for that matter the world, like this work."
