More About This Book

Overview

Beyond the Horizons: The Lockheed Story, is the story of those turbulent eighty-two years during which Lockheed achieved fantastic successes and endured occasional failures. Lockheed aircraft set innumerable records and were flown by great pioneering aviators such as Amelia Earhart, Wiley Post, and Howard Hughes. Lockheed engineers garnered fame usually reserved for film stars: Men like the great Kelly Johnson and Ben Rich advanced the world of aviation with their genius, and were honored as legends in their own time. Yet the secret of Lockheed lies in the spirit of family that illuminated the corporation over the years and permitted it to gain great triumphs and survive great tragedies.
Beyond the Horizons is never dull, frequently amazing, and always worthwhile. Walt Boyne, is, without a doubt, the most informed and informative aerospace writer now plying his trade." --Joe Mizrahi, Wings magazine

"Promises to be a classic among books about the aviation industry...the definitive biography of a premier American enterprise. Walter Boyne has taken a complex company history and sorted out the important milestones and the characters who achieved them." --C. V. Glines, Aviation History

"Remarkable for its depth of research. Aviation enthusiasts will snap up this most thorough record of a dominant force in the defense industry." --Publishers Weekly

"A solid history of a unique business, told with fluency and enough suspense to hold readers interested in either aerospace or business history. Recommended." --Booklist
