"The Observer's Book of Aircraft is now by way of becoming the standard quick-reference book of 'what's on in the air'. This 1959 edition contains much that is not only new but of major interest to the future. Notable among these new aircraft are the big American jet airliners - the Boeing 707 and the Douglas DC-8 in their production forms.... As a cross section of recent aeronautical production The Observer's Book of Aircraft provides a clear picture o the current state of the aircraft world. Whether you approach it as a student of design, of operation, or of recognition characteristics, there is much to browse upon and to digest."

If you aren't sure about something or simply want to ask a question about an item before purchasing don't hesitate to get in touch. Whether it is to clarify sizing or request more info on a product we are always here to help.
*Sizing - garments are always measured laid flat and doubled, e.g. armpit to armpit is 17" = 34" chest
*Colour - we do our best to capture the true colour of a garment in the photos but if you are not sure then let us know and we'll be happy to send more photos
*Wear & Tear - our item descriptions are quite detailed to ensure you are given as much information as possible about each item's condition. If we state the condition as 'new' or 'never worn' then expect no wear and tear. If a garment is listed as 'excellent' then there are no faults and the item has normal wear for a vintage or used item. 'Very good' is an indication that the garment is wearable but there may be minor or insignificant flaws that are not noticeable or can be fixed and these are always stated in the description. We do not stock items that are of a poorer condition than the above.
*Materials - if there is a label or marking on the item we will state what fabric or materials were used to make the product. If the item does not have a label we will always state this and then indicate our own opinion of the fabric or material but this is not a guaranteed fact.
*Product Care - if there is a care label on the item we will state the directions indicated. If the item does not have a care label we will state our product care advice based on the fabric/material.
