Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In classic There I was ... style, the pilot-penned tales in First Flights will take you along as the authors vividly describe their most thrilling aviation firsts. First Flights will transport you to space in the Shuttle for the first-ever docking with the Mir Space Station. You'll journey around the world in the milestone-setting Voyager aircraft and Breitling Orbiter 3 balloon. You'll jet to the edge of the atmosphere in the X-15 rocket plane. And you'll hang on the edge of your seat as you relive test flights of homebuilt airplanes. These true stories, written by the pilots themselves, will have you wondering how they found the courage to accomplish their first flights, and are sure to inspire you to pursue your own.
