This work describes in detail the aircraft designed and built by Vickers since the time when the great armaments and shipbuilding firm was asked to construct a naval rigid airship. It recalls the Gunbus and then the Vimy that made the first non-stop aeroplane crossing of the North Atlantic and the first flight between England and Australia. Of special interest are the detailed descriptions of the well-known and little-known designs of the inter-war period. The story of the Wellington, the company's most famous wartime aircraft, is detailed and it includes full production lists.
