Buttler and Delezenne. Exotic research aircraft designed, built, and flown in Europe in the two decades following WWII were the foreign equivalent of the legendary American X-Planes. Many of these advanced machines captured speed and altitude records previously held by their American counterparts. Some of today's most famous and successful designs were influenced by advanced technologies first tested and flown on European X-Planes with a significant number of aviation 'firsts' occurring at secluded flight test facilities located in England, France, and Germany. The world's first jet airliner (1948), first jet transport with rear-mounted engines (1956), first VTOL jet fighter (1964), and first supersonic airliner (1969) were all developed in Europe utilizing technological advances pioneered by these rare and highly advanced aircraft. Includes 250 photos and images (many previously unpublished) and detailed appendix; 304 pages.
