I opened it up and photographed pages at random for you.  Here they are.
Good price/performance ratio!!! B)

I'd add that I didn't choose pages based upon how pretty they are--that's an entirely random sample.  So pretty much every page of the book has illustrations.  And the thing is HEAVY.

Thanks Blackstar,

I think I'm going to order a copy. Just one more question: is there any expanded info about the Beriev aircraft carrier ekranoplan?

I didn't find any, but that doesn't mean that it's not there.  I don't know much about the subject, so I don't know how to look through the book for that info.  There's a whole chapter on Beriev's designs, and then several paragraphs on each of the proposed versions.

Crecy is showing a "greatly expanded" edition of this book to be released in late October.
