Howard Hughes' airline : an informal history of TWA by Robert J Serling( Book )

3 editions published between 1983 and 2017 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flying in the face of adversity... Howard Hughes was known during his lifetime as one of the most financially successful individuals in the world. Funded by his considerable wealth, he formed the Hughes Aircraft Company in 1932 and spent the remainder of the decade setting multiple world air speed records. The enigma that was Howard Hughes and the saga of the mighty airline he ruled ruthlessly for two decades are combined in this unique corporate history that reads like a thrilling work of aviation fiction. Movie stars and moguls; airline chieftains and staff, from pilots to skycaps - these are the colourful characters that grace the pages of this anecdote-filled book that pulls no punches. In the course of researching the TWA story, author Robert J Serling interviewed more than one hundred individuals, many of whom knew Hughes personally. The result - a portrayal of the eccentric billionaire that has never been seen before. This is the first full account of the great air carrier that the moody, mysterious Hughes first saved from extinction and then nearly destroyed in the process... Praise for Robert J Serling 'Aviation buffs will revel in this thoroughgoing chronicle' - Kirkus Robert J Serling (1918-2010) wrote aviation fiction, as well as some non-fiction, his whole adult life and received the 1988 Lauren D.
