The Risk Takers: Racing & Record Setting Aircraft

The Risk Takers: Racing & Record Setting Aircraft

The Risk Takers: Racing & Record Setting Aircraft
by Hugh Cowin

This book focuses upon two distinct but complementary - and in certain cases overlapping - aspects of aviation. At the Reims Air Show in 1909, the American Glenn Curtiss and Frenchman Louis Bleriot vied with each other for the speed record, and Henry Farman won the distance prize. The first official air races were held in 1911. There were a staggering 32 aviation fatalities in 1910; CS Rolls (co-founder of Rolls-Royce) was the first to perform a non-stop return crossing of the English Channel, but his Wright Flyer would break up in mid-air a month later. This book illustrates and analyzes all such pioneering achievements in precise technical detail.
96 pgs, SB, 7.25x9.5, photos/illustrations.
