Overview

Wooden Wings Over The Golden Gate is the only book to give a detailed account of early flying in the Bay Area. Historian Allen Herr recalls the aviation pioneers who flew weekly exhibitions promoting the Panama-Pacific International Exposition for fifteen months prior to its San Francisco opening. Many of the pioneers formed flying schools, built airports, manufactured aircraft, and competed in air shows. Herr captures the energy behind the Bay Area aviation movement, tells who was involved, and describes the effects of their extraordinary determination and achievements.
