A sequel to the much-loved Hush-Kit Book of Warplanes. Plucking the best from over 1,000 articles from the highly respected Hush-Kit blog, Volume 2 takes an even deeper dive into the thrilling world of military aviation.
A lavishly illustrated coffee-table book crammed with well-informed and utterly readable histories, listicles, interviews, and much more. Beautifully designed, with world-class photography, we reveal the bizarre true story of live bats converted to firebombs, the test pilot that disguised himself as a cigar-smoking chimpanzee, and an exclusive interview with the aircrew of the deadliest aircraft in history.
Here is an utterly entertaining, and at times subversive, celebration of military flying!
The spectacular photograph of the F-4 Phantom we have used on the cover was taken by Rich Cooper from the Centre of Aviation Photography.
