Detailed pictures of the Boeing 377 Stratocruiser are notoriously difficult to find. Nicholas Veronico, however, has assembled a wealth of sharp photographs showing the aircraft under construction, the mighty (and equally temperamental) Pratt & Whitney R-4360 radial engines, flight decks (including navigator's and flight engineer's stations), and interiors (including the main deck, lower deck lounge, sleeping births, lavatories, and galleys) - all this and more in a slim 104-page volume! Mr. Veronico does an admirable job showing the configurations unique to each airline customer, and he includes information on secondary operators of the type.
Mr. Veronico's text is both enjoyable and informative, covering the development of the mighty Strat, along with narratives of the aircraft in airline service. This technologically advanced (for its time) airliner, unfortunately, had more than its share of trouble; the author describes the untimely endings of these ill-fated birds, including Captain Richard Ogg's heroic water landing of Clipper 953, Clipper Sovereign of the Skies. Detailed charts at the end of the book present the serial numbers and construction IDs of all the Stratocruisers by major carrier, along with individual histories of each and every Stratocruiser built.
I have yet to find more information on a particular aircraft in a single volume; Mr. Veronico truly outdid himself here. I heartily recommend this excellent book.
