The book is about the realisation of man's oldest dream-the conquest of the skies. The stories are taken from eyewitness accounts, newspaper stories, reports to scientific bodies, from log-books, memoirs and letters. Eighteenth-century engravers, watercolourists, painters and nineteenth- and twentieth-century photographers all contribue a wealth of dramatic illustration, much of which has never been published before.
