Summary

Peter R. March tells the amazing story of 'stealth', describing its origins in the U-2 and SR-71, and the subsequent development and operational service of the stealth fighter and bomber with the USAF. He also includes a whole host of useful stealth facts and figures, together with a list of stealth squadrons, and a guide to where you can see stealth aircraft in the USA - if you can! The book is illustrated in full colour with photographs from Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman archives, as well as private collections. How can you tell a stealth aircraft? It must be very hard to detect on radar. The hot emissions from its engines must be minimal. It must be quiet. Its engines should not produce contrails or exhaust smoke in cold atmosphere. It should be difficult to see with the human eye. This is the only full colour hardback about stealth aircraft. This book covers the wide interest in stealth aircraft and the associated technology worldwide. Both the stealth fighter and bomber have seen action in Iraq. It contains more than 80 photographs in colour. It comes in a handy format and attractive design.
