{detailed description}Balloons, airships, sea and land planes, parachutes all play their part in this intriguing story. Many famous men and women whose names are world renowned also have their part. East Anglia attracted the early aviators and much of the history of flying in Great Britain was written over this flat terrain.
The preparation for the Schneider Trophy Race, the design and manufacture of such planes as the F.E. 2b, the Zeppelin raids and other events of the First World War, together with the development of the R.A.F. in East Anglia, are but a few of the subjects Christopher Elliott has covered. This book will prove a valuable addition to the history of aviation as well as having an immense nostalgic appeal.
