Those Legendary Piper Cubs from the Author: Carroll V. Glines. A history of the world-famous Piper light planes from their origin as a brainchild of Clarence G. Taylor through the series of fabric-covered, high-wing, single-engine descendants that preserved the aircrafts general profile. The ultimate success of the company through many crises was due to the philosophy of William T. Piper, Sr. who believed that light planes for student instruction and airport flying services could be produced profitably at low cost. He became known as the Henry Ford of aviation as the company produced more light aircraft than any other manufacturer in the world. The text includes many uses of the various models, interesting modifications and experimental spin-offs. It concludes with accounts of several adventurers who flew their vintage Cubs without radios, blind flying instruments or navigational aids.

Vee S For Victory from the Author: Daniel D. Whitney. Over 60 percent of U.S. Army fighters during World War II were powered by the Allison V-1710 engine. It was a strong and reliable power plant that powered the pre-war generation of 400 mph Army pursuits, and the majority of Army combat fighters on through World War II. Even so, the V-1710 was controversial and often maligned, considered by some to have been a second-rate engine. Author Whitneys objective was to find, and tell, the true story of the 70,000 V-1710s and the people who built them. A critique of Vees For Victory! was provided by the Editor of Wings Magazine, August 1997, who wrote: Presenting the 1929-1948 story of Allisons V-1710 engine in a revealing investigative style that uncovers a great deal of new material, this well-illustrated volume represents something seldom seen these days pure, original research. Combined with lucid writing and penetrating analysis, Vees for Victory! recounts Allisons up and down career from Curtiss XP-37, through the XP-58, and GM XP-75 Eagle. In between are all the major fighters which utilized the Allison, including the P-38, P-39, the lightweight fighters XP-46A and XP-47, as well as the early P-51 Mustangs. Author Dan Whitney carefully and seamlessly grafts the histories of these aircraft to their engines and supercharger components, relying on new information from aero engineers and test pilots to present what is sure to become a milestone in the recording of aviation history.
