Higher, faster, and farther by Mark P Friedlander( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an account of selected flights for speed, distance, altitude, and duration in all areas of aviation from early hot air balloons to spacecraft. It includes a number of pioneer flights, and highlights the more spectacular and significant record-setting aerial adventures--the tragedies as well as the triumphs. Many of the flights are famous in aviation lore. Others are not widely known. Some of the early around-the-world trips are of special interest, including the achievement of two U.S. Army DH-4s in 1924 and the incomparable journey of the Graf Zeppelin in 1929. Higher, Faster and Farther presents a broad sweep of aviation history through the experiences of the balloonists, aviators, and astronauts whose courage and competence have helped to establish aviation records. An important feature of this book is the appendix, which lists for the first time in book form all of the major, official world aviation and space records of the National Aeronautic Association--United States representative of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (F.A.I.)." --William Morrow & Company, Inc
