Description

This is a Japanese-language book or magazine about aircraft and/or aircraft modeling. Some Japanese aircraft books, such as the Aero Detail series contain complete English text as well. See the product description below for details.

Katsuhiko ("Katsu") Tokunaga is easily one of the most accomplished air-to-air photographers in the world today, and this time he has turned his lens not on state-of-the-art supersonic fighters, but instead on the DC-3, easily one of the most important aircraft in aviation history.

This gorgeous volume follows the Breitling DC-3 during an around the world adventure to some of the most famous places on the globe. Katsu accompanied the plane on its multi-month journey and used his connections to get special permission for many of the low fly-bys that are immortalized in this beautiful collection -- see the samples shown here; many of the best shots are arranged as huge two-page spreads.  There are a few captions, but these are in Japanese only.  

A must for any serious aviation fan!
