Jay Miller is renowned for writing some of the best books ever published on aviation history. He approaches his subjects with a depth of knowledge which is unsurpassed. The level of detail on each aircraft type is mind boggling, but please don't expect this book to be a collection of detail photographs- there are other books around that do that better. Quite simply this is a book for those who have a thirst for understanding and learning about the more obscure technical details of these immensely important experimental aircraft.

As usual Jay Miller goes the proverbial extra mile to provide detailed information, often found nowhere else, on some of the most fascinating planes ever to fly. This book is for those with intelligence and education, who want more than a simplistic children's "picture book". Highly recommended!

this books been a long time coming/overdue! if you like the experimental prototype aircraft that paves the way for production line aircraft, then this book is for you. mr miller does an excellent job telling this story beginning with chuck yeagers "sound barrier" bell x-1, to todays stealthy yf-22 rapter and x-45. has my favorite jet in it the north american yf-107a and x-15. us air force museum store highly recommends this book to me. well worth the money if your into aircraft and experimental aircraft from late 1940s to today.
