Yes, it gets very technical, but since me and this aircraft are about the same age, I enjoyed that aspect. Simons does repeat himself at times and that would be my only complaint.
If you like aviation history, then I suggest this book. Very good book that provides lots of details about the XB Valkyrie. Only two of the Mach 3 replacements for the B were built and one was lost in a mid-air collision. The Valkyrie is one of the most beautiful and complex aircraft ever flown. Simons does a good job of covering the scope and breadth of the program but, surprisingly given the size of the book, doesn't delve too deeply in many areas. There is little to no discussion of the design process that led to the final shape of the aircr Very good book that provides lots of details about the XB Valkyrie.
There is little to no discussion of the design process that led to the final shape of the aircraft and little discussion of the "zip" fuels that were considered. Simons does give a great deal more info about the political climate at the time than I have seen in other texts.
