[E-book] Curtis Peebles - DARK EAGLES. A History of Top Secret US, Aircraft Programs

Curtis Peebles, «DARK EAGLES. A History of Top Secret US, Aircraft Programs (Revised Edition)»
PDF | 3,5 Mb | 378 pages | Publisher: Presidio Press | year: 1999 | Language: English | Country: United States| ISBN 089141696X


Peebles admirably assembles, from a multitude of sources, a compact complete history of U.S. programs to develop so-called black or secret aircraft. Those began with work on the first American jet, the Bell P-59, during World War II, and proceeded to include the construction of such eventual headline-makers as the U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird, and the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter, which distinguished itself in the Gulf War. Also covered are such lesser-known vehicles as several families of reconnaissance drones, some fast and high, some low and slow. Besides the hardware, Peebles covers the logistics, administration, and politics of keeping multibillion-dollar programs under wraps until they succeed or fail. Occasionally, such secrecy has led to fantasizing aircraft that do not exist–the demonstrably legendary Mach 5 Aurora, for example, which was a favorite of flying saucer cultists. Overall, one of the year's best additions to aviation collections.
