8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By John Matlock on November 16, 2005
Format: Hardcover
In addition to their marvelous airplane collection, the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum also has a collection of over a million and a half photographs related to Air and Space.

This book is made up of photographs selected out of that collection by the author who is a museum specialist in he Archives Division. The first pictures come from the earliest days of flight in hot air balloons. They continue through some of the experiments run in space. Inbetween are photographs throughout aircraft history, including Roy Rogers and Gene Autry loading Trigger and Champion onto plances.

It is clear that whatever happens, people regardless of what they are doing will have pets, and they will take these pets along with them wherever they go.

Terrific amusement for pet lovers, history buffs, airplane aficionados, etc. A very original approach for pulling selections from the Air and Space Museum's vast photographic collection.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Amy on January 3, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book is a beauty. It's a coffee table tome, but slightly smaller, so it fits easily in the hand, and the historic photos, both black & white and color, are crisply reproduced and delightful to study. The text manages to be both learned and droll; the author is evidently a lover of both airplanes and animals, and an elegant, engaging writer. You'll choose your own favorite airborne animal. Mine was Billy, the goat with a parachute, and Kiddo, the airship cat. And there's the Red Baron's flying Great Dane! Not that he's likely to have had a hamster. Highly recommended!
