High in the Desert Skies: Early Arizona Aviation by William D. Kalt III
EARLY ARIZONA AVIATION
High in the Desert Skies: Early Arizona Aviation -Recounting the people, events, airplanes, and airports that helped Arizona lead the way in the nation’s aviation development. From hosting three of the nation’s earliest air shows, to its central roles in early transcontinental and round-the-world flights, the Arizona desert has contributed to the historical record in many ways. The U.S. Army Air Service launched route-mapping missions and recruiting efforts above the mountains and canyons, and Colonel Chas. A Lindbergh made an historic visit. These stories of early aviation in the desert skies kindle dreams of daring aerial excitement and challenge, far-sighted focus and resolute persistence.
