Format: Hardcover
Replete with deftly compiled historical photographs and featuring succinctly informative essays, "The Legacy of Flight: Images from the Archives of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum" is the collaborative project of authors David Romanowski (writer-editor in the Exhibits Design Division of the National Air and Space Museum) and Melissa Keiser (photo archivist for the National Air and Space Museum). Showcased in this superbly presented, 288-page compendium is a profusely illustrated historical overview of aviation and space flight over the last one hundred years, including not just key personalities and every major aircraft category, but all of the thematically related occupations including from mechanics and designers, to ground and air crews, to astronauts and scientists. "The Legacy Of Flight" is thoroughly 'reader friendly' and an especially recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library Aviation supplemental reading lists and reference collections.

Format: Hardcover
Not just another book about the history of flight. And, not a typical coffee table book, either. Actually not a very large book, but photographs are well presented. This is a very nice cross section of over 100 photographs from the National Air and Space Museum's photo archives. With the exception of a few classics, these are not the over used photographs that everyone expects to see when discussing the history of fligt. The captions are well written, giving interesting insight to each photo. A nice addition to anyone's library. Due to it's size, it would also make a great gift book.
