Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress - Warbird Tech Vol. 7

Its full potential still not explored, the model 299 crashed at Wright Field on 30 October 1935 on takeoff, with the control locks inadvertently engaged. Much as the crash of the new XP-38 Lightning several years later did not kill that promising program, so did the Flying Fortress outlive the demise of the prototype.

My impression of this book is it is geared more towards the person who is an infrequent user of Matlab and Simulink, has read one or two Matlab or Simulink books in the past and needs a short refresher on a particular topic.
