Deskripsi

"Early-Day Flying in Kansas City" is based on a trade paperback published in 1970. The original book, Aviation History in Greater Kansas City, was compiled by "Historic Aviation" magazine, edited and published by Ken Weyand, a private pilot at the time, with a keen interest in aviation history.

Ken had met and interviewed several Kansas City aviation pioneers, and was personally acquainted with many pilots and aviation business people who played key roles in local aviation. Ken put the book together with the help of several others who shared his interest in old-time flying.

This book begins with the area’s first balloon ascensions and dirigible events, continues with exhibition biplane flights in 1910, and follows the development of aviation with the works of tinkerers and homebuilders, early barnstormers, racers, and manufacturers. It includes the beginning of airmail service, the formation of small independent airlines, and ends with the birth of Kansas City’s transcontinental carrier, Trans World Airlines.

Illustrated with many drawings and photos, "Early-Day Flying in Kansas City" is a must-read for everyone who appreciates flying and enjoys reliving the amazing progress of aviation in Kansas City.
