An introductory essay details the history of Aeroflot and the Soviet aerospace establishment. Tragedy and triumph, crushing defeats and stratospheric successes in the parallel world of the airline scene during the Cold War.For fans of transport, aviation (both civil and military), history, politics, travel and photography.“A rivetting insight into an entire solar system of big jets that haven’t enjoyed half as much attention as their western counterparts – until now. Epic!”– Craig West, Airliner World
