A third volume in the colour series developed from Jane's Aircraft Recognition Guide, JANE'S POCKET GUIDES. The volume is full of facts and figures, and drawings of modern airliners for the dedicated enthusiast.
Jane's Airlines of the World is a profusely illustrated reference guide to civil aviation today. This is for the man in the anorak: the aircraft spotter, found by runways all over the western world. Modern Airliners is the third in the colour series developed from Jane's Aircraft Recognition Guide. It provides an up-to-date reference guide to all modern widebodied airliners. Our nearest similar title is the Gem Civil Aircraft which has sold 20,441 in the 18 months since its publication (15,076 in UK, 5,365 export). Modern Airliners offers a lot more information than the Gem, but is aimed at the more dedicated enthusiast. Hence my expectation of 5000 sales in the UK per year. All the facts and figures plus a pin-sharp colour profile & line drawing from Jane's All the World's Aircraft.
