While the cutaway illustrations are magnificent, and the illustrator did a fantastic job, I find that only 1/2 of the 38 Lockheed aircraft indexed have cutaway illustrations. Perhaps it was too much to expect, but I anticipated similar cutaways of the seminal single-engine Lockheeds of the 1930's: Explorer, Air Express, Vega, Sirius, Altair, Orion. Only the Vega is so immortalized.
Also, the index is flawed by the "search for occurrences of" syndrome, as the Model 9 Orion includes a listing for the P-3 Orion, and the Model 10 Electra includes the L-188 Electra.
These are nits - it's a very good book - just not what I thought it was going to be. If you're looking for something specific, check out a copy in your local bookstore. If it meets your needs, *then* buy it.

Format: Hardcover
This book contains BEAUTIFUL line-art illustrations of a host of Lockheed aircraft, past and present. The artwork was done by Mike Badrocke who is a recognized master at this craft. Bill Gunston is also a master aviation writer. Together they've produced a very beautiful book for the aviation enthusiast. You'll see cutaways of the A-12, C-5, F-16, F-117, U-2, and even the F-22. There are civil aircraft cutaways such as the Constellation and L-1011. Helicopters, WW2 aircraft and before are all represented. It's a wonderful book to help you "explore" the inner workings of these aircraft, and nobody does it better than Badrocke.

Yet another fascinating collaboration by Mike Badrocke and Bill Gunston. The format's a little small for such detailed work, but great to see nonetheless.

Great illustrations. The text can be a bit confusing if this is your first book about the history of Lockheed (lots of names used many times without an introductory explanation of who or what they are), but in general a very recommendable book.

This is the third in the series of books featuring the clean illustrations by Mike Badrocke showing the history of Lockheed through the technology of their varied projects. Should be in the library if you really like cutaway drawings.
