Airlines and air mail : the post office and the birth of the commercial aviation industry by F. Robert Van der Linden( )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Airlines and Air Mail, F. Robert van der Linden boldly reinterprets the growth of the airline industry, persuasively arguing that it was the Progressive Republican policies of Herbert Hoover that actually put commercial aviation on the map in the United States. Led by Hoover's postmaster general, Walter Fogle Brown, the government promoted the combination of strong private financial enterprises with substantial government guidance through economic incentives to develop commercial aviation in the public interest while avoiding the problems experienced earlier during the development of the railroads
Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis by Dominick Pisano( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On May 21, 1927, the twenty-five-year-old Charles Lindbergh flew his plane, Spirit of St. Louis, from New York to Paris and entered history as the first person to complete a nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic. This feat - born of Lindbergh's heroism, deep knowledge of aviation, and sheer strength of will - has long been considered one of the greatest adventures of the twentieth century and made Lindbergh a household name throughout the world." "As time passes and thousands routinely retrace his route daily, it is easy to lose sight of the true dimension of Lindbergh's achievement. Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis, written by Dominick Pisano and F. Robert van der Linden, two leading aviation historians and curators at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, charts Lindbergh's career from youthful barn-stormer to outspoken public figure, focusing on his flight and the preparation for it. They stress the degree to which Lindbergh's achievement was grounded in his sophisticated grasp of aviation technology and his superb skills as a pilot." "Illustrated with newly taken color photographs of the plane - one of the most precious artifacts in the museum - and archival photographs, this book captures the excitement of the early, pioneering days of aviation."--Jacket
