Front Cover
Naval Inst Press, May 1, 1989 - History - 170 pages
This book offers a complete history of the pioneers, planes, and services of U.S. Coast Guard aviation. It covers seven decades of aircraft development, from the early "stick and wire" seaplanes to today's E2C Hawkeyes, and recounts the human drama of aviators risking their lives in dangerous trial-and-error flight testing, search-and-rescue missions, wartime enemy surveillance, and law enforcement.
