Publisher Comments:

A century after the Wright Brothers first took to the air, the author records those moments of aviation history that stand out from all the others for their pioneering bravery or gallantry in the face of the enemy. From the first faltering flights, through the conquest of the world by flight, the drama of war in the air, right up to the present day and the four ill-fated flights of September 11th 2001. Each story is a superb description of the great moments in the history of aviation.

Synopsis:

The First 100 Years of Aviation. A superb read for both the layman and aviation specialist alike. Traces the history of aviation through its vivid descriptions of milestone moments.
