If you thought flying by modern means was tough then you should really read this book. Not only is this a great read about American Aviation History but it will make you thankful for the conveniences we have today. Image flying coast to coast in a plane that wasn’t heated, no sound protection and taking two days to get to your destination. Hard to picture.
This book tells the story of the history leading up to and after the introduction of the Ford Tri-Motor and the impact it had on commercial aviation. The depth that goes into the various airlines is quite impressive and is quite fascinating. So if you need a good read this summer, this is one I recommend.
