The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 three-engine jet is one of the most distinctive wide-bodied aircraft and since the early 1970s has been operated by many airlines on medium- and long-distance routes throughout the world. Successfully flying passenger service for over 40 years, the DC-10 currently still flies for FedEx in an airfreight delivery role. Filled with design and construction information, background history, technical data, and rare images, this book describes the exciting story of this aviation legend as flown by such current and past airlines as Aeroflot, American, Delta, Eastern, KLM, Lufthansa, Northwest, Pan Am, Qantas, SAS, Swissair, United, and many others. Also, the US Air Force has been flying the KC-10 Extender aerial-refueling tanker variant since the early 1980s. Coverage of the follow-on MD-11 series of aircraft is also included.

The Magic of a Name tells the story of the first 40 years of Britain’s most prestigious manufacturer - Rolls-Royce. Beginning with the historic meeting in 1904 of Henry Royce and the Honourable C.S. Rolls, and the birth in 1906 of the legendary Silver Ghost, Peter Pugh tells a story of genius, skill, hard work and dedication which gave the world cars and aero engines unrivalled in their excellence. In 1915, 100 years ago, the pair produced their first aero engine, the Eagle which along with the Hawk, Falcon and Condor proved themselves in battle in the First World War. In the Second the totemic Merlin was installed in the Spitfire and built in a race against time in 1940 to help win the Battle of Britain. With unrivalled access to the company’s archives, Peter Pugh’s history is a unique portrait of both an iconic name and of British industry at its best.

This book outlines how the Canadian Marconi Company succeeded in a high-technology export market in competition with some of the largest companies and achieved a global leadership position without a domestic market. Central to this story is an aircraft navigation system that uses signals from eight government-owned stations around the world. The aviation community knows it as the Omega System. The Canadian Marconi Company developed its first aircraft Omega Navigation System while the government of the United States of America was setting up the ground stations. Part of this story is the Company's recognition that if it wanted to sell its own product, it had to help promote this new technique in navigation.
