A fascinating pot-pourri embracing the whole story of aviation from those first faltering flights, through the conquest of the world by flight, the drama of war in the air, right up to present day and the four ill-fated flights on 11 September 2001. Each story is a superb description of the great moments in the history of aviation. A superb read for both the layman and aviation specialist alike.
