Summary
"This book is being published in association with the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The museum will celebrate its 40th anniversary in July 2016. There will be a new Smithsonian exhibition, to be called "Milestones of Flight." This book is NOT a catalog of the exhibition; rather, it is a history of flight told through approximately twenty-five historical milestones"--
