B&W Illustrations; SIGNED EDITION. This edition is a trade paperback. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. This copy is inscribed by the author. "Earline is the perfect example of a flying grandmother. I first met Earline shortly after she had taken a flight with the Chief Administrator of our school. Although I had seen her previously while I was working with other students, I didn't know what she was doing at the school or what rating she was pursuing. All I knew was that she looked very prepared for whatever she was studying. Actually, I thought she was getting ready for a flight review." "Professor Earline Ames served Sacramento State from 1968 until her retirement in 1983. She was a respected member of the faculty in what was then known as the School of Education, where she also served as chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences in Education. She was later appointed Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Ames’s faculty colleagues recall her forthright communication style and her vibrant leadership. Earline Ames received her undergraduate degree from Baylor, master’s degree from San Francisco State, and Ph. D. From Stanford University. Her career in teaching lasted 36 years. She continued to take on new challenges even in retirement; in 1998 she co-authored When Grandma Learned to Fly, A Flight Instructor’s Nightmare, about her experiences gaining a private pilot’s certificate at the age of 75. Dr. Ames passed away in Rocklin in August 2007." ; Signed by Author

Its head office was at Warwick House in the Farnborough Aerospace Centre in Farnborough, Hampshire. In 1999 it purchased Marconi Electronic Systems, the defence electronics and naval shipbuilding subsidiary of the General Electric Company plc, to form BAE Systems. The company was formed in the United Kingdom as a statutory corporation on 29 April 1977 as a result of the Aircraft and Shipbuilding Industries Act. This called for the nationalisation and merger of the British Aircraft Corporation, Hawker Siddeley Aviation, Hawker Siddeley Dynamics and Scottish Aviation. In 1979 BAe officially joined Airbus, the UK having previously withdrawn support for the consortium in April 1969. In accordance with the provisions of the British Aerospace Act 1980 the statutory corporation was changed to a public limited company (plc) , under the name British Aerospace Public Limited Company, on 1 January 1981. On 4 February 1981 the government sold 51.57% of its shares. The British government sold its remaining shares in 1985, maintaining a £1 golden share which allows it veto foreign control of the board or company."

Originally developed by UK manufacturer Hawker Siddeley in the 1960s, the Harrier emerged as the only truly successful V/STOL design of the many attempted during that era, despite being a subsonic aircraft, unlike most of its competitors. It was conceived to operate from improvised bases, such as car parks or forest clearings, without requiring large and vulnerable air bases. Later, the design was adapted for use from aircraft carriers."

"The Gossamer Condor evolved over a period of time through three distinct versions. The first version, known by MacCready as the Pasadena version, was a proof-of-concept aircraft which flew only once in the parking lot of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The first aircraft carrying the name Gossamer Condor was known as the Mojave Version, without pilot fairings and other niceties, flown at Mojave airport by MacCready's sons on 26 Dec 1976. The record-breaking version, known as the Shafter version included all the improvements such as a pilot nacelle and double-skin airfoil sections, allowing the aircraft to fly long distances as well as maneuver. The aircraft, piloted by amateur cyclist and hang-glider pilot Bryan Allen, won the first Kremer prize on August 23, 1977 by completing a figure-eight course specified by the Royal Aeronautical Society, at Minter Field in Shafter, California. It was capable of taking off under human power." "Bryan Lewis Allen (born October 13, 1952) is an American self-taught hang glider pilot and bicyclist. He achieved fame when he piloted (and provided the human power for) the two aircraft that won the first two Kremer prizes for human-powered flight, the Gossamer Condor (1977; the first human-powered aircraft to fly and meet specified criteria) and Gossamer Albatross (1979; the first human-powered aircraft to cross the English Channel). He later set world distance and duration records in a small pedal-powered blimp named "White Dwarf." "; Signed by Associated

"The Blackbird - if you want to know how the SR-71 came about, and who did what to whom, you need to read this book. The Blackbird, the nickname given to the SR-71, was forged from 1950's and 60's components merged with aerodynamics and structural metallurgy from the cutting edge." "The Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" was a long-range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft that was operated by the United States Air Force. It was developed as a black project from the Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft in the 1960s by Lockheed and its Skunk Works division. American aerospace engineer Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was responsible for many of the design's innovative concepts. During aerial reconnaissance missions, the SR-71 operated at high speeds and altitudes to allow it to outrace threats. If a surface-to-air missile launch was detected, the standard evasive action was simply to accelerate and outfly the missile. The SR-71 was designed with a reduced radar cross-section."

Pressure ratios of 5:1 were excellent, and fuel consumption of 1 lb ber pound of thrust per hour was outstanding. Today it is realized that these performance figures were indeed humble beginnings for the great progress that was to take place."

"Harry Combs (27 January 1913 – 23 December 2003) was a United States aviation pioneer and author of many fiction and non-fiction books from Denver, Colorado. Harry Combs "lived and breathed the Golden and Jet Ages of aviation" according to the governmental U. S. Centennial of Flight Commission, in a 2003 press release. The release stated that Combs saw his first airplane at the age of four-and-a-half and also in his youth was influenced by the book "Diary of an Unknown Aviator"—a World War I chronicle by Elliot White Springs. Combs' father, Albert, was shot down twice in World War I, and was said to have warned his son never to set foot in an airplane. Nonetheless, the young Combs paid $2.50 for a ride in a mail plane at the age of 13; then, two years later, inspired by an advertisement for $99 flying lessons, made his way to St. Louis, MO for three hours of flight instruction, soloing immediately thereafter."
