Description of book: "Adventures in Flying" is a collection of human interest aviation stories involving virtually every aspect of flying, including airplanes, gliders, ultralights, helicopters, balloons, blimps, and seaplanes. These are unusual--sometimes almost unbelievable--achievements of pilots who are, for the most part unknown, although there are some stories about aviation heroes, including Jimmy Doolittle, Amelia Earhart, Malcolm Forbes. There are stories about men and women who overcame what seemed like insurmountable obstacles to achieve their goals. The book includes chapters on Blacks in Aviation, (including stories about Tuskegee Airmen), Women in Aviation, Mercy Flights, and handicapped pilots.
About the author: Jack Elliott wrote an aviation column for the Sunday Star-Ledger (Newark, New Jersey) for more than 38 1/2 years, the longest running aviation column to appear in any major newspaper. The stories in this book are based on those columns. He has received a half dozen national journalism awards and has been inducted into the Aviation Hall of Fame of New Jersey. He was presented with the FAA Wright Brothers Award for more than 50 years of safe flying.
