Meeting Time-Life’s usual high standards, this book tells the story of the transitional years, between the end of the large piston engined airliners, and the introduction of the 1st jet powered ones, in the 1940’s and 1950’s. This era is still influential to all of us, because, without it occuring, we could still be in a time when airline passenger service would be the territory of only the wealthy, as it was from the 20’s until the mid 50’s. Jets introduced speed, efficiency, and , most importantly, cheaper operating costs and airfares. Robert Serling does a great job of explaining all this. A “must have” for aviation historians.
