2nd Printing. Illustrated with colour and B&W photographs. From the cover: “This is the dramatic and entertaining story of many of this century’s most colourful adventurers. It shows how, thanks to the dreams, courage and inspiration ofa few hundred people, the aero- plane has developed from a Heath Robinson contraption of wooden struts and fabric into a machine of steel and aluminium that can circle the Earth in 100 minutes or reach out into space. War inevitably plays an important part, as do luck and vision, as one technological breakthrough gives way to another. This book, which includes material from over 200 interviews with pioneering aviators, is fully illustrated with stunning colour and black and white photographs.”
