Jane's All the World's Aircraft is an aviation annual publication founded by Fred T. Jane in 1909. It is published by Jane's Information Group. Jane's All the World's Aircraft has chronicled a century of ever-accelerating aviation progress and recorded the particulars of an unprecedented number of flying machines, using the widest possible interpretation of that phrase, in the most minute detail. Six editors have had the privilege of commenting upon the significant aircraft and events of manned flight since the first edition appeared in November 1909 as All the World's Airships (which was then a generic term for any machine that flew). This first publication was seen as being ahead of its time but even the skeletal book showed the strength of Fred T. Jane's standardised approach to data collection. The first edition even carried a pre-addressed return proforma for aviation pioneers to supply the details of new machines.
Besides listing the different types of aircraft by nationality, the first issues covered aerial societies, journals and flying grounds and cost just 21 shillings. Respect for the accuracy of Jane's All the World's Aircraft transcended political enmities. Cold War notwithstanding, Soviet authorities supplied Jane's with information. Such was the technical reference book's reputation that Argentina even provided details of its aircraft during the Falkland's Conflict in 1982. Altogether, there have been only 97 editions, mainly due to disruptions during the two World Wars.
