The Illimitables: Nicky Levitation by Jack D. Smith

Although this is a fictional story about one of the greatest inventive minds from the late 19th and 20th Century, it reveals possibilities still to be realized and developed from Tesla�s 112 patents. The idea is introduced into the lives of some very special dedicated individuals determined to overcome gravity. They want to achieve success without any outside financing. Unfortunately, they become entwined with foreign spies, lies, and intrigue, romance, and adventure. The principals meet their own kind and work tenaciously to achieve their goal by many hundreds of experiments, taking them from Colorado, New York, Finland, Siberia, England, The Isle of Man, and settling in special areas of New Mexico. The Illimitables open up new industries and make American military unchallenged. Such developments created new industries and gainful employment for thousands around the world. This story is wrapped around the lives of individuals making such things reality.

A native of Chicago, Illinois, Smith attended Chico, California High School and enlisted in the United States Navy immediately after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Upon discharge from the navy, he attended the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, on the GI Bill, where he obtained his bachelor degree in business administration with a minor in aviation. He embraced his love of flying and became a private pilot with a partner for seventeen of the twenty-three years that he flew. He and his wife flew the twelve Western states, Canada, Mexico and into the Southern states of Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. The Mooney he flew was his own version of the anti-gravity machine while airborne. He used his bachelor degree to become a State Farm Insurance agent, owning his own business for thirty years. Now retired, he resides in Van Nuys, California, with his wife, Janet. He is a senior member of Rotary International and has also been a member and president of the North Hollywood, California, Chamber of Commerce.
