From the Back Cover
The Greeks mythologized it, Leonardo da Vinci hinted at it, and Jules Verne fantasized about it. Flight, and in particular the notion of ’slipping the surly bonds’ has captivated us from the beginning of time. Canada, with its vast and unreachable territories, was an important testing ground for all aspects of early aviation. A Memory of Sky is an illustrated history of both civil and military aviation written by a former RCAF jet fighter pilot.See all Product Description
