{detailed description}Every weekend, dedicated groups of amateur 'aviation archaeologists' set out for unlikely sites to unearth the remains of crashed aircraft. In this completely revised and up-dated edition, Bruce Robertson examines the many different branches of 'aviation archaeology'. Beginning with a survey of veteran and vintage aircraft and preservation societies, he then surveys the joys and pitfalls involved in unearthing aircraft wrecks. After investigating other fields of activity, such as exploring old and derelict airfields, he goes on to look at collecting aeronautical books and photographs, beginning one's own research and writing for magazines and books. There are also sections on collecting and identifying a variety of other related aeronautical relics, including postcards, cigarette cards, airmail covers, propellers, paintings, drawings and models. This revised edition contains three entirely new appendices examining German component numbers, PRO air records and air reports and records. It will appeal to aviation enthusiasts of every type.
