In the Cockpit II: Inside History-Making Aircraft of World War II

Provides close-up access to the instrument panels, controls, and crew stations of 34 legendary World War II aircraft in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's impressive collection. Using a high-end digital camera with a wide-angle lens and complex shooting techniques that combine digital precision with manual dexterity, photographers Eric F. Long and Mark A. Avino expertly capture every detail of the cockpits, bringing them to life as never before. Insightful text by Smithsonian curators Roger D. Connor and Christopher T. Moore place each cockpit in historical context.  Hardcover; 144 pages; contains 150 full color photographs.
