A stunning documentary history of aviation and space flight in the last 100 years that highlights the achievements of both the famous and the everyday people involved in the endeavor as well as every major type of aircraft, military and civilian, commercial and civil, and all the professions that make it work: pilot, mechanic, designer, builder, ground and air crew, astronaut and cosmonaut, controller and scientist. Every image tells a story and is accompanied by short, delightful essays. Hardcover; 288 pages. 6" x 9.4" x 1.2".
Each time a plane takes off, the wonder of its feat seems brand new. Trailblazing pilots embraced flight’s gravity-defying possibilities, and the bravery of their vision never fails to astonish.
