Katz Paperback 12.040000000000001 Used More than any other weapon system, the legendary Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is the embodiment of American military power in the popular imagination. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the B-52 has been its longevity. The B-52 first flew in 1952 and entered operational service with the U.S. Air Force in 1955. Boeing delivered the last B-52 in 1962. Five decades later, the B-52 remains in front-line service, most recently taking part in combat over Afghanistan and Iraq. Even more amazingly, current plans are for the B-52 to remain in service until 2040. This volume is packed with historical and recent photographs of the B-52, including some that were released by the U.S. Air Force and its contractors just for use in the book. As part of his research, the author flew on a B-52 training mission, and the flight report in this volume is the most detailed description of a B-52 mission ever published. Illustrated with color profiles, detailed line drawings, and over 190 photographs. 88 pages,0,0,60,60_.jpg;,0,0,60,60_.jpg 88 Squadron/Signal Publications 2012-06-01 English 0897476875 9780897476874 0.2 x 8.2 x 11 inches 10.4 ounces Books>Politics & Social Sciences>Social Sciences>Disaster Relief 0897477421 U.S. ECM Aircraft In Action Ken Neubeck Paperback 16.630000000000003 Used The purpose of electronic countermeasures (ECM) is to jam, spoof, trick, or otherwise fool an enemy about the location or capabilities of armed combat units. Although the US employs ECM on the land, air, and sea, modern military aircraft are the primary platform in the ECM battle because they can scan a larger patch of earth. This book briefly explains the history and development of various ECM techniques with particular emphasis on US Navy, Air Force, and Marine aircraft that have taken electronic countermeasures into battle from the 1950s through present. Specific aircraft included are ECM variants from the 1950s, Vietnam, the Cold War, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Deliberate Force (Yugoslavia), and modern aircraft including the Navy’s EA-18 Growler, which is capable of jamming frequencies and eliminating surface-to-air radar sites at Mach 1.8.,0,0,60,60_.jpg 80 MMD-Squadron Signal 2017-01-16 English 0897477421 9780897477420 11 x 0.2 x 8.5 inches 12.6 ounces Books>History>Military>Aviation 0897500113 Hapkido: Korean Art of Self-Defense (Korean Arts Series) Bong Soo Han Paperback 8.98 Used Here is the first complete book in English on hapkido, the kick-oriented Korean martial art.

The essential series, compiled and organized by his close friend, Mito Uyehara, is the perfect companion to Bruce Lee's classic text, "Tao of Jeet Kune Do". "The Bruce Lee's Fighting Method" series is an integral part of the Bruce Lee canon and a necessary addition for collectors and martial arts enthusiasts alike.
