Spyplanes is the comprehensive history of manned spyplanes, beginning with those Italian airplanes puttering above the North African desert and continuing through every major world conflict to culminate with jets cruising at supersonic speeds 85,000 feet above the Earth's surface. Nearly seventy-five aircraft from eight nations are profiled, pictured, and accompanied by a specification box. Included are purpose-built spyplanes, as well as legendary fighters and bombers that have been retrofitted for the purpose over the years. In addition, the authors feature preliminary chapters discussing the history of aerial surveillance and a host of sidebars that explore considerations such as spyplanes in military doctrine, events such as the Cuban missile crisis, the downing of Francis Gary Powers' U-2, the 1992 Open Skies Treaty, and the USAF's current Big Safari program.
