Summary
  • "An encyclopaedic, four-volume work on every aircraft type proposed, designed, or manufactured in Australia, from Lawrence Hargrave's experiments in the 1880's, through to the authors self-imposed cutoff point in the mid-1980's. The four-volume work lists over 540 aircraft types as well as detailed histories of the companies involved in their construction. Coverage is multi-faceted, being technical, operational, historical, industrial, and political. Along with the text is the most comprehensive collection of photographs, technical drawings, and diagrams yet assembled into the one reference work, many of which have never before been seen outside the original source. Exhaustively researched over the past 40 years by the well-known aviation personality Keith Meggs, a man uniquely placed to write on all aspects of Australian aviation from construction through to operational flight. All volumes are superbly indexed and cross-referenced with the main text reinforced by extensive and detailed endnotes. Aircraft enthusiasts, pilots, aeronautical engineers, manufacturers, industrialists, universities, and other technical institutions, "Australian-built aircraft and the industry" is a must have for your reference library. In Volume One the fourteen chapters cover the following activities: Hargrave, Taylor, the Commonwealth Prize, Early Experimenters, Duigan, WWI Activity, AA&​ECo, 1924 Lightplane Competition, LASCo, QANTAS, WAA, RAAF Randwick, Individual Builders 1918-1939, AMSCo, MSB, Matthews Aviation, General Aircraft Co, Cockatoo Dockyard, Tugan Aircraft, Harkness &​ Hillier, De Havilland (Aust) - part 1, Industry proposals, and other snippets."--Provided by publisher.
