Surplus WWII U.S. Aircraft
It takes awhile for the enormity of the surplus at hand at the end of World War II to be truly grasped. The United States disposed of millions of dollars worth of surplus military equipment and this book gives the reader the total overall picture of the distribution of World War II U.S. aircraft. It shows the continued use of some of these planes for civilian non-military purposes as well as the scrapping and salvaging of others. Many sites involved in this massive distribution are documented in this book. Readers who are interested in what survived and what may still be flying as well as how many were reduced to ingots will find, in addition to the extensive photo coverage, an emphasis on prices, totals available for sale and licensed, etc., information that has not been documented in one book before.
