From the very beginning of aviation in South America, French aircraft and aviators played a major part in the development of military flying in Peru. This exciting new book covers the use of French aircraft and the involvement of French designers, instructors and military thinking in the development of the Peruvian air force. From “stick and string” biplanes through to supersonic jets, many of the most significant French types saw service in Peru and were involved in local conflicts, as detailed in this book.

Profusely illustrated with many rare photos and color profiles of selected aircraft in Peruvian markings
