9781781591093: Fabulous Flying Boats: A History of the World's Passenger Flying Boats

The history of the development and operations of flying boats in the early twentieth century is a vibrant one, full of colorful characters and experimentation. In ‘Fabulous Flying Boats’, Leslie Dawson captures this spirit of dynamism, reminding us of the most successful early pioneers of the seaplanes development, including a little known and oft-overlooked rival to the Wright Brothers, working to put their mutual successes in context. He goes on to describe, in clear and vivid detail, and using first hand-accounts, what it was like to be aboard one of the resulting huge passenger flying boats, as air crew and as a passenger. He also recounts the part played by the military boats inevitably seconded to such use. Incredibly well researched, the narrative embraces the globetrotting air routes, from Europe to the Far East and to the Americas, and is well supported with evocative images from private and corporate collections, and the world’s aviation museums. The in-depth Appendix is virtually a book in itself. The book is sure to be a welcome addition to any Aviation enthusiast’s library as it covers a particularly important period of Aviation development, which formed a fertile environment for a host of young experimenters. The process of development continues to this day.

About the Author :

Leslie Dawson was born in Southgate, North London. An enthusiastic member of No 85 Squadron Air Training Corps, he first flew from Hendon, now the home of the RAF Museum. He went on to train Glider Pilots at Christchurch Gliding School, a prestigious Aviation establishment. Surrounded by planes for the majority of his working life, his enthusiasm and experience mean he is well placed to offer such a history. He is the author of Wings Over Dorset, a book depicting the county's aviation history. The success of this title secured the author a series of television interviews, including one with the BBC.
