Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Wright brothers’ first flight, this series presents the exciting history of aviation. Vivid illustrations and photographs show aviation’s greatest moments, famous pilots, and the multitude of aircraft to date from military to commercial planes.
During the Golden Age of flight, planes were pushed to – and sometimes beyond- their limit, as pilots raced to be the first to cross oceans and continents. At home, surplus planes and out of work pilots gave rise to barnstormers and daredevils who thrilled crowds with their aerobatics. Read about the amazing records set by the adventurous aviators of the time.
