Flying Over the USA: Airplanes in American Life: Transportation in America
Martin W. Sandler (au)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
After countless failed attempts, Wilbur & Orville Wright took to the air in the first powered airplane in 1903 -- & so began the era of flight. Seemingly impossible records were broken one by one: Charles Lindbergh made his solo flight from N.Y. to Paris in 1927, & only 20 years later, Chuck Yeager flew faster than the speed of sound in his rocket-powered airplane. In 1918, with the first scheduled airmail service, the plane became the fastest way to send a letter across the country. Soon planes & their pilots were putting out fires, predicting the weather, saving crops, & shuttling passengers. But the most practical job of the airplane was, & still is, carrying freight. This book tells the story of flight from its very beginning through today. Illustrations.
