"Wirraway to Hornet"

A history of the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation Pty Ltd. - by Brian L. Hill

Wirraway to Hornet not only presents the history of Australia's premier aircraft production facility, but integrates this with the military, political and technical aspects that affected the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation Pty Ltd and aircraft production in Australia.

Presented through the eyes of CAC, this book follows the great rise and sad ending of one of the few aircraft manufacturers in the world to produce both engines and airframes and possibly the only one to do both at the one facility.

With 294 pages, as well as being an intriguing history of Australian aviation, this hard cover book with dust jacket contains over 100 photographs, many published for the first time, as well as an appendices section containing data sheets, biographies, various summaries and line drawings.

Brand new.
