Summary
The early years of aviation were marked by a series of firsts. It seemed as if each record-setting flight was quickly surpassed by an even more daring aviation feat. Although uncountable records were made and then broken, one aviation goal captivated everyone's attention, a nonstop flight between Paris and New York. This is the story of the daring feats of three courageous adventurers and their airplanes. Although only one plane could be first, the remaining two shared in the glory of historic, heart-stopping flights. And, all three changed aviation history
Summary
In the spring of 1927, three pilots--Clarence Chamberlin, Richard E. Byrd, and Charles Lindbergh--compete to be the first to fly across the Atlantic, in this exciting book that chronicles the daring feats of these courageous adventurers and the aftermath of their flights
