Our Jets of the United States Navy

Our Jets of the Unted States Navy



The strength of America lies not only in her soil, her resources, and her people, but in the air above her. There the thunder of her great air armadas roars a warning—a warning that her freedom will not be endangered.

In Our "Jets" are presented the most interesting of our fighting aircraft, the products of the minds and skills of a really free people. Although military restrictions limit the information that the author may give about some of these aircraft, rest assured that there arc none better.

C. B. Colby
