The GA-28A was a three-quarter scale prototype of the convoy fighter, while the GA-28B was the full scale design armed with four 20 mm cannon. Both were VTOL tailsitters powered by turboprop engines and featured a semi-delta, semi-midwing configuration with triple vertical tail surfaces. The aircraft also had unusual landing gear which permitted either conventional or vertical landing and takeoff. Features 40 illustrations, including detailed schematics, artists impressions, and speculative color profiles of these unorthodox aircraft designs.

An ideal book for modelers and enthusiasts of unbuilt aircraft projects.
