Buzz Numbers - America's Military Aircraft

£11.99

Product description

The Buzz Number system, the famous identification system for U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force aircraft from late 1945 into the mid-1960s, was developed as a deterrent to 8th Air Force pilots engaged in unauthorised low-level flying over post-war Europe. This practice, called 'buzzing', prompted the need for ground observers to be able to identify and report a particular offending aircraft. In response to this need, a system of letters and numbers was developed to uniquely identify each aircraft in inventory.

This book includes an in-depth explanation of the buzz number system as well as its many applications. This book is the ultimate buzz number reference for modellers and aviation enthusiasts.

There is slight bumping to the covers of the book. The first few pages are dog-eared at the bottom right corner. Otherwise, the pages are clean and the binding is firm.
