Featuring the greatest fighter and attack aircraft ever designed, Jet Fighters Inside Out is a highly illustrated exploration of the workings of some of the most significant military aircraft of the past 60 years.

From the World War II Messerschmitt Me 262—the world’s first operational jet fighter—to today’s Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, Jet Fighters Inside Out is arranged chronologically, showing the development of jet fighters through 50 key examples, including the Phantom II, the MiG-21, and the F-22 Raptor.

Each aircraft is illustrated with a detailed cutaway artwork, with labels identifying specific features of both the interior and exterior of the aircraft. Accompanying this are colour three-view artworks and photographs of both the aircraft’s cockpit and exterior. Expert writing puts each aircraft, its development, and service history into context in aviation history, while a wealth of technical data provides full specifications and additional data including variants and operators. Packed with facts and visual information, Jet Fighters Inside Out is an essential reference guide for modellers and aviation enthusiasts.
