Famous First Flights That Changed History: Sixteen Dramatic Adventures
Lowell Thomas (au); Lowell Thomas Jr. (au); Buzz Aldrin (fr)
Here are Bleriot, Byrd, Doolittle, Alcock, & Brown & the others -- plus the 1965 round-the-world-flight over both poles! This book vividly describes the daring exploits of many pioneers of the air. Recounts all the harrowing details of the aeronautical feats of daring that have thrilled the world. Readers will find themselves involved in the romance & hazards of long-distance flying: with Lindbergh as he plays a breathtaking “game of solitaire” with the forces of nature; with the Magellan's of the Air on their round-the-world air race; & with Ross Smith & his three crewmen on their trouble-plagued flight from London to Australia. Also related are some of the more spectacular failures, some of which surpass the successes in terms of sheer adventure. Illustrations.
