Following the hugely successful Hush-Kit Book of Warplanes Volume 1 and its forthcoming sequel, Volume 2 (out spring 2025), comes the third instalment!

Beautifully designed and printed, and bulging with witty expert analysis and interviews from combat pilots, the best aviation writers and aeronautical insiders this takes you somewhere no other aircraft book would dare. Featuring unseen and beautiful illustrations in extreme detail and thrilling colour, thought-provoking diagrams and world-class photography, this is the definitive aviation coffee-table book.

With original articles from the Hush-Kit vaults supplemented with a meaty serving of unreleased exclusive material, volume 3 is funnier, more technical and even more irreverent than the previous books and reveals the secrets behind the technology, weapons and tactics that rule the skies.

Why is this launching before Volume 2 is out?

This model of publishing takes a bit longer as it has a crowdfunding stage. To ensure a quicker turnaround between books we want to get Volume 3 moving now. All the books are 100% crowdfunded. It is only thanks to your support that we are able to build this amazing series of books.

Update on Volume 2!

As you probably know we successfully funded a second volume a while back. The Hush-Kit Book of Warplanes: Volume 2 has just moved onto the next stage of its journey: the developmental edit is complete and we're onto the copy edit, then (if I have the order right) next up will be the design stage. The good news is the book is going to be even better than Volume 1. It includes a wealth of exciting artworks of designs that never left the drawing board, deep dives into spectacular planes that include the Westland Whirlwind, Beaufighter, B-58 Hustler and many more, insights from some of the world's greatest fighter pilots, fascinating diagrams that shine a revealing light on the most formidable piston-engined fighters ever developed, and the fruits of a team of madly clever historians and aircraft designers picking apart the numbers and stories of these planes to get to the truth. A lot of work has gone into it and there is no other book like it (well, perhaps Volume 1). There are some very funny articles, some extremely bizarre ones and some uncensored fighter pilot views that you'll really want to read.

Praise for Vol 1

‘Hush-Kit is stupendously brilliant – irreverent and witty but also backed up by phenomenal knowledge and a completely fresh take. It’s completely addictive and, without doubt, the best aviation magazine in the world. The Hush-Kit Book of Warplanes is a thrilling read quite unlike any other aviation title’ James Holland

‘The extremely handsome Hush-Kit Book of Warplanes is an absolute must-have for anyone who has ever looked at an aeroplane with a little too much intensity!’ Al Murray
