Description
 
To celebrate the first full century of powered flight, this book showcases an astonishing march of progress. From the early experiments of gliderman Otto Lilienthal to the moon walk of Neil Armstrong, it has indeed been ďA Century of Triumph.Ē The 200+ detailed b&w & full-color illus., including dozens of cutaway images of aircraft structure, are works of art worthy of the design achievements of the greatest aircraft engineers. The book also features never-before-published vintage watercolor posters of pre-World War I aviation races & a treasure trove of photographs. Chantís text combines full histories of the planes themselves with biographical essays on some of the great figures of the 20th century. Oversize.
