1 Review
Lavishly illustrated in four-color with largely never-before-published photographs and memorabilia from an exclusive private collection, Wright University, and National Air & Space Museum archives. Supporting text supplies clarifying detail of visual story: technical information of inventions, training classes, personal accounts of factory workers and student pilots, Wilbur Wright's funeral, and the Wright-Smithsonian feud. Wright Aircraft from 1900-1915 is depicted in photos, drawings, specs, and history--from the warping kite of 1899 to the last of the classic Wright pushers.
