Wings Over America: The Fact-Filled Guide to The Major and Regional Airlines of the U.S.A. Reviews
This is a very interesting effort, but it should have been done in a larger format, such as 11 x 8-1/2. The maps are too small to be any good without a strong magnifier, and the fact tables aren't much better.
I bought this as a gift and was shocked when the tiny package arrived. I'll admit, I didn't read the details about size and such, but for the price I expected the book to be larger. It's about the size of a large post card and isn't very thick. I skimmed through it and the content and photos seem nice, but because the book is so small, the print is also very small. For the price, I's expect more, but the receiver of the gift seemed to like it, and that's what matters most so I still give it 4 stars.
Bought this book for a friend who loves airplanes. He carries it with him everywhere and loves it.
My son loves this book. If you have a child that is interested in planes this is a great way to get them reading more without it seeming like "work". My son reads this over and over, especially the planes he likes and he has yet to get bored with it, he's 10.
if you're looking for more info. regarding the big carriers in the U.S. as well as any further detail about specific planes, this is a bad selection. It focuses on relatively unheard of connecter and commuter lines while adding chapter upon chapter of the history of said insignificant airline. Boring and definitely not what I thought I was getting. My 3 year-old is more interested in the surprisingly few pictures within this book. Not terrible, just not as expected. Spend more for something that is thicker and offering more.
I like all the nice graphics in this all-color book about today's U.S. airlines.
Great book for referencing every airlines in America. Excellent for and enthusiast, especially for people who fly domestically. I'd love to find a book just like this that is up to date for airlines all over the world! Any recommendations? ?
