This book provides an illustrated look at the history of propeller airliners. From the first dramatic passenger flights in converted World War I planes to the great turboprops of the 1940s and 1950s. Though outnumbered on today’s major air routes, the propeller-driven airliner is successfully holding its own and is now challenging jet liners on short routes where fuel economy is important.
