Wright to Fly: Celebrating 100 Years of Powered Flight was published by the RAF Benevolent Fund Enterprises. Richly illustrated with paintings by noted aviation artists, this informative tribute to one hundred years of aviation ranges from the Wright brothers' first successful flight in 1903 to the present day, capturing the extraordinary innovations in aircraft and aviation technology over the past century. With its expert text and its paintings by renowned aviation artists, Wright to Fly is a splendid tribute to the people, aircraft, and events that have shaped the amazing story of powered flight since the Wright brothers’ first successful flight on December 17, 1903. A hundred beautifully reproduced paintings illustrate the enormous strides that have been made―from the flimsy wood and fabric aircraft of the earliest years, through the powerful piston–engine fighters and bombers of World War II, to the stealth jets, the Concorde supersonic airliner, and shuttle–flight into space. An outstanding commemorative volume for all aviation enthusiasts. We have available a small quantity of special editions supplied in a stylish, protective slipcase. Hardback 1st edition, 2002.
