Riassunto: Every year, a number of military aircraft ranging from single-seat fighters to fully laden cargo planes are lost in accidents. Because these disasters often occur in remote corners of the world and rarely involve members of the general public, they seldom attract the sort of media attention given to those disasters which involve civil aircraft.
In this, the first volume to systematically document and describe military aviation disasters, author David Gero has assembled a century of mishaps, beginning with the loss of a Wright flyer that was being demonstrated for the U.S. Army in 1908. In addition to the aircraft types and serial numbers, and times, places, and causes, there are copies of accident reports and previously unpublished photographs of crash sites. Also includes combat losses involving transport aircraft and gliders.
Descrizione del libro: Each year dozens of military aircraft come to grief, ranging from fighters and bombers to trainers and transports. David Gero covers major military disasters worldwide and gives full details of the aircraft involved, its operator, route, location of crash, loss of life, and where known the reason for the crash. The author has undertaken considerable detective work to piece together details of many of the incidents recorded here. In this revised and updated second edition, he has investigated significant military aircraft disasters from 1999 to 2008, including the conflicts in Bosnia, the Second Gulf War and Afghanistan.
