“Having spent most of my life in the cockpit, I am well acquainted with the sheer magnificence of these machines. World War II ushered in a new era in aviation and military technology, and this book gives an exclusive look into some of the most famous planes in the history of flight.”
— Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger

The follow-up to 2008’s In the Cockpit, this gorgeously designed book focuses specifically on the interiors of World War II aircraft. In the Cockpit II features rare aircrafts from the Smithsonian’s collection and a visual viewpoint of cockpits that museum goers never get to see, plus a foreword by distinguished pilot Robert A. Hoover. A perfect gift for Father’s Day and holidays!
