A dream takes flight!
Surprisingly interesting history of Americans in flight and how it ties in with Government defence. Apparently it took the Wright Brothers several attempts to attract the Government into what they were doing and how it could help them. Once they were on board, I suppose, the sky's the limit. Slightly (or maybe a lot) propogandistic towards US successes, still,, a very interesting history document. Reccomended!
