AIRCOM: Canada's Air Force is the latest in CANAV Books' series of titles celebrating Canada's distinct aviation heritage. It is a detailed look at today's air force seen through the photographic viewfinder.

AIRCOM is a visual feast that shows all the aircraft operated by Air Command. It also focuses upon the people who make the air force work, and on their many bases. A special section deals with Canada's Hornets in the Persian Gulf war.

All the famous AIRCOM types are covered in this exclusive production — more than 50 pages for fighters, 30 for the world-famous Snowbirds, 50 for transports, etc. There has never been such a splendid gallery of original AIRCOM photos. There are more than 300 in all. Included are many nostalgic views of RCAF aircraft from years gone by, hearkening back to AIRCOM's roots. The photos are complemented by the detailed captions. These provide all the AIRCOM "gen", and also explain many of the basic techniques in aircraft photography, a touch that no Canadian book yas yet included.

AIRCOM: Canada's Air Force begins with an informative preface that looks at the state of the air force today. There are also extensive appendices, a glossary and index. The book is unique in its own right and is the perfect update to CANAV's 1987 title, Canada's Air Force Today.
