We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. AbeBooks has millions of books. We've listed similar copies below.

Description:

Probable first printing (not stated contrary to publisher's usual practice). 255 pages. Hardcover: H 28.5cm x L 21.5cm. White dust jacket lightly rubbed, mild soiling to panels, light toning along front panel's spine edge with crease at bottom right, light bumping at spine ends with nick at heel; dj now presented in a mylar Brodart protector. Blue cloth, mild color fading along spine and along rear board's joint margin. Several small dark stains upon fore-edge shallowly affecting a few leaves at margins. Interior pages are otherwise bright and clean. Binding retains some crispness. A very good copy in a very good dust jacket. With red endpapers, Foreword by Ernest K. Gann, Introduction by Joe Brown, 24 pages of color photographs, 181 b/w photographs, and Index. Tallman reviews such airplanes as the 1909 Bleriot, Curtiss Pusher, Fokker EIII, Maurice Farman, Nieuport 28C-1, Spad VII, Sopwith Triplane, Sopwith F1 Camel, Fokker DRI Triplane, Fokker DVII, SE5A, Pfalz DXII, Standard J1, Curtiss JN4D, Thomas Morse S4B Scout, Boeing P-12, Lockheed Vega, Al Williams' Curtiss Gulf Hawk, Spirit of St. Louis, Ford Trimotor, North American B-25 Mitchell, Curtiss P-40E, Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress, and Chance Vought FG1D Corsair. Legendary Hollywood stunt pilot Frank G. Tallman (1919-1978) co-founded Tallmantz Aviation in 1961 with famed stunt pilot and air racer Paul Mantz (1903-1965) for the purpose of supplying pilots and aircraft for movie and television productions. Among Tallman's many notable aviation feats were his stunt flying for the 1963 movie "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" as well as being aerial supervisor for "The Great Waldo Pepper" in 1975 and aerial coordinator and pilot for the TV series "Baa Baa Black Sheep." Doubleday generally specifies their first printings by a "First Edition" statement upon their copyright pages and thereafter omitting any indentifying statement(s) for later printings. However, as I have had several copies of this book in the past (all later printings readily identified by number lines upon their copyright pages), Doubleday evidently reversed their standard procedure leaving me to presume that, with this particular book, the first printing is unstated. Please note that this large book has an approximate shipping weight of 3.75 pounds and will require additional postage for any postal class other than domestic Media Mail. ISBN 0385091575.

Synopsis: When one opens this book, he/she will literally "take flight"(s) in 25 historic aircraft! From the Flying Fortress of WWII to a hot air balloon and a Goodyear blimp, this book tells it all and shows many in its 24 full color and 181 black and white photos. For the pilot or the pilot wanna-be, this is a grand way to spend time.
