A CONCISE HISTORY OF FLIGHT
  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket edited by Ray Bonds
  • 1997 Barnes & Noble Books
  • © Elephant Editions Limited, 1997

" In less than 100 years the evolution of mechanically powered flight has leapt from Orville Wright's 12-second hop covering 120 feet to the current state of air transportation where millions routinely fly hundreds and thousands of miles a day. "

" In between, the airplane has been adopted for a variety of uses;
for defense and destruction;
for aid in rescue and emergency transport;
for delivery of raw materials and manufactured goods;
and certainly for the sheer fun of soaring into the heavens.
On the darker side, we have witnessed the devastating destructive power of military aircraft designed for attacking targets on both land and in the air.
All of these activities were unimaginable when the Wright brothers flew that historic day almost a century ago. "

" Entirely new industries have emerged from the result of air transportation.
Scores of people are employed to build and maintain airplanes, to aid in passenger service, and of course to fly and crew these magnificent flying machines. "

" The story of aviation is fantastic and fascinating, enthusiastically told here by five expert authors and illustrated superbly with wonderful contemporary photographs.
This is a book of great reference, but also of tremendous interest to anyone who travels by air, or who maybe dreams of what the future of flight will be. "
