Summary
Within this classic volume are the tales, tribulations, and ultimate triumphs behind some of the most spectacular and break-taking aerodynamic feats of early twentieth century aviation. Recounted firsthand from the annals of history, Famous First Flights will lift readers directly from the pages and into the action. Join the exhilarated crowd as they watch French flying ace Louis Bleriot make the first air journey over water in 1909. Be on the ground in Paris to welcome Lindbergh and his magnificent The Spirit of St. Louis upon the landing of the first solo transatlantic flight. Hold your breath with Ross Macpherson Smith and his crew on their infamously trouble-plagued trek from London to Australia in 1919. And relive the excitement and awe experienced 'round the world as 'The Magellans of the Air' completed the first circumnavigation of the globe via air in 1965. In these and thirteen other recounts of jaw-dropping feats, celebrated aviators Lowell Thomas and Lowell Thomas, Jr. deliver another must-read volume in the Explorer's Club Classic Series. With over forty photographs and new updates on ballooning and space flights, Famous First Flights is must-read compendium for every arm-chair pilot and aviation enthusiast
