Pressestimmen

'This is a splendid book. The authors try to tell the whole story, starting with Cayley. With their immense background, practical as well as academic, the maths are all there but so are countless often fascinating references to actual aircraft ... How often do you find an erudite treatise that is truly un-put-downable?' Bill Gunston, Aerospace Magazine
