This magnificently illustrated book describes the aircraft and technology behind the most significant developments in aviation since the jet engine. Penetrating the cloud of secrecy, disinformation and speculation surrounding stealth aircraft, author Doug Richardson provides a detailed survey of the principle stealth aircraft in the skies today, including the F-117 Nighthawk, F-22 Raptor, and B1-B and B-2A bombers, as well as aircraft still on the drawing boards and in testing, like Boeing's and Lockheed's Joint Strike Fighter contenders, the Eurofighter 2000 and the latest Russian developments. Stunning color plates and diagrams, along with dramatic photography, help explain the technology of these aircraft and stealth in general. In addition, there is a fascinating look at the countermeasures currently under development to oppose stealth warplanes.
