  • Description or summary of the book: They're all here-every X-bomber and X-fighter since 1942. On October 2, 1942, the Bell XP-59 Airacomet soared up and away from present-day Edwards AFB, launching the US Army Air Forces into the Jet Age. In the several decades since, hundreds of new variations of experimental and test turbojet-powered bombers and fighters-X-bombers and X-fighters-have taken explosive flight. These aircraft blazed a trail leading to today's B-2 Stealth Bomber and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.TheBig Book of X-Bombers & X-Fighters showcases all of the USAF jet-powered X-bombers and X-fighters that have flown since 1942-more than 90 in all, including the alphabet soup of their variants. From experimental to prototype service bombers and fighters-from the XB-43 to the B-2A and the XP-59A to the F-35A-they're all here, with their inside stories revealed. Some of these aircraft were further developed. Others were canceled. All stretched the performance and design envelopes.More than 250 photos illustrate all of these experimental aircrafts' cutting-edge features and zeroes in on histories of their design, flight testing, and weapons testing. Specification tables detailing performance, design, and armaments help round out this compendium of information on truly groundbreaking aviation designs.X-bombers and X-fighters in TheBig Book of X-Bombers & X-Fighters include: Bell P-59 AiracometRepublic P/F-84 ThunderjetDouglas B-43 JetmasterNorth American B-45 TornadoBoeing B-47 StratojetCurtiss P/F-87 BlackhawkMcDonnell P/F-85 GoblinConvair P/F-92 'Dart'Northrop F-17 CobraBoeing B-1 LancerAnd all the rest!Specifications included for each aircraft include: LengthHeightWingspanEmpty weightGross weightMaximum rangeCeilingMaximum speedArmamentIn addition, veteran aviation author Steve Pace shows readers some of the designs that could have been and offers a peek into what might be lurking in the future, making this the definitive guide to USAF jet-powered experimental aircraft!
