With so many photos of the latest high-tech airplanes in various air forces, it’s sometimes refreshing to step back and see images of the pioneering aircraft that led the way.

The following pictures from Donald Nijboer andDan Patterson, “Fighting Cockpits: In the Pilot’s Seat of Great Military Aircraft from World War I to Today” does just that by placing the reader inside the cockpit of these incredible machines.
