Bleriot in Britain 1899-1927, by Ray Sanger
To most people, Louis Bleriot was simply the Frenchman who was the first person to fly the Channel in a heavier-than-air craft.
In fact, Bleriot's connections with Britain stretched over 25 years. For the first time, Ray Sanger tells the full story of Bleriot in Britain, covering not only his life and various enterprises, but even the histories of all the Bleriots built or flown here. The distinctive Bleriot monoplanes were widely used for training and sports before World War I and then saw extensive war service. Special features include scale plans and photo captions in English and French.
Hardback. Dustjacket, 192pp including 8 pages of colour photographs (31 images) plus 360 monochrome images including photos, advertising and three-view drawings.
