Formed at the start of the "Cold War" era, the Military Air Transport Service (MATS) sprung out of the newly-created United States Air Force to serve the U.S. military throughout the world. From the Berlin Airlift to Vietnam, MATS crews and aircraft were found at every "hot spot," and MATS represented a golden era for the United States Air Force.
As well as the history of the service in general, Williams provides in-depth coverage of each type of aircraft operated. A superb selection of photographs in high quality, large-format reproduction accents the text.
