For more than 40 years after 1945, the world was dominated by confrontation between two major power blocks, led by the United States and the Soviet Union. One of the most menacing and potent symbol was of this was the nuclear bomber. During the first phase of the Cold War, this was the dominant weapon. Both sides maintained large fleets of nuclear bombers at a high level of readiness. They also continually probed each other's air defenses, to discover weak points in them

On June 6, 1944, in the largest amphibious operation of all time, the Allies assaulted Hitler's much wanted Atlantic Wall on France's Normandy coast.

Over the years aviation has attracted its fair share of would-be geniuses whose grandiose theories did not stand up in practice. There have also been those whose courage has been matched by their fool hardness. Yet many weird designs have flown successfully

Law enforcement from the air( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aircraft's domination of the air above us gives it the ability to be an all-seeing eye. In the military science this could mean the spy plane, which reveals the secrets of potentially hostile nations. There are intelligence satellites which constantly orbit the earth. But most of us witness the aircraft's all-seeing eye at very much lower level and in the form of the police helicopter patrolling over cities and highways
Korea to the Gulf War( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Second World War proved not to be the war to end all wars, and air power has had plenty of opportunity to demonstrate its strengths and weaknesses in the numerous conflicts which have so troubled the post 1945 world. First out, air power played a major part in the 45 years of cold war between the Capitalistic and Democratic West and the Communist Eastern bloc, with a manned bomber providing one-arm of the nuclear triad. The aircraft of both sides constantly probed each others airspace to test the defenses. And this period also saw conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf, with the accompanying expansion of aerial operations
Naval aviation( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of the Second World War, the U.S. Navy could boast a strength of nearly 120 carriers. Land-based aircraft had played a major part in the war against the submarine, especially in the longest running campaign of all, the Battle of the Atlantic. Here Maritime Patrol Aircraft accounted for nearly half of the German U-boat's sunk. During the years 1939-1945, aviation had shown itself to be just as vital a component of Naval Warfare as it had been on land. It would continue to do so in the wars of the coming decades
Angels of mercy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is easy to think of aircraft as having just two main purposes. One, a means of transport, speeding passengers and freight all over the world. The other is as weapon of war. Yet aviation fulfills many other roles for the benefit of humanity. These roles involve the saving of life and coping with disasters both natural and man made. Famine, fire, pestilent, and flood have been with us since beginning of time. In recent years, aircraft, both fixed and rotary wing, has proved evermore invaluable in helping to deal with emergencies and disasters of every sort
