Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Seldom do we have documentation from key individuals in key positions at key moments in history. In the history of aviation, this autobiography of Ed Heinemann fills that niche. One of a handful of key innovators who shaped military (and commercial) aviation in the 20th century, Heinemann lays out in very readable fashion the progress we made in this field from the late 1930's through the 1960's, an era that saw us going operationally from 200 mph propellor driven to supersonic jet aircraft, and even rocket powered resarch planes. The force of its first person narrative lends great credibility to the subject matter and I highly recommend it for anyone who seeks the details behind some of the great aircraft that came from the Douglas organization.
