At the Controls: The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Book of Cockpits (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This is the finest collection of cockpit photographs ever published. The Smithsonian Museum (NASM) holds the world's finest collection of historic aircraft, but visitors must maintain a respectful distance. In this book, two NASM photographers use creative lighting techniques and an extremely wide-angle lens mounted on an architectural camera to duplicate the sensation of actually being at the controls inside the cockpits of 45 legendary aircraft, including: Wright Brothers 1903 Flyer; Bleriot Type XI; Fokker D.VII; Spitfire VII; Spirit of St. Louis; Focke-Wulf 190; Messerschmitt Me262; P-51 Mustang; B-29 Enola Gay; Chuck Yeager's Bell X-1; F-16 Falcon; Airbus A320; Gemini VII; Apollo Lunar Module; and Space Shuttle Columbia. This book is illustrated with 90 full-colour detailed photographs to delight the aviation enthusiast.
