The Flying Firsts Of Walter Hinton

by Benjamin J. Burns, The Flying Firsts Of Walter Hinton Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Flying Firsts Of Walter Hinton books, Walter Hinton was a pilot on the first plane to cross the Atlantic (eight years before Lindbergh)—a four-engine, Navy-Curtiss flying boat with a crew of six, in May 1919. Based on more than 40 hours of personal interviews with Hinton, this volume chronicles that first flight and Hinton’s other remarkable adventures in aviation—which include being lost in a downed balloon in the Canadian Arctic and believed dead, making the first flight to Rio de Janeiro from New York, pursuing the first aerial exploration of the Amazon, and undertaking a nationwide promotion of aviation and airports for the Exchange Clubs in the United States. With the dramatic and adventurous story of Hinton, a lost chapter in the history of flight in America is uncovered.

Attack On Orleans

by Jake Klim, Attack On Orleans Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Attack On Orleans books, This true account of a German submarine on the Massachusetts coast was called “an action-packed page-turner” by Sen. John McCain. On the morning of July 21, 1918—the final year of the First World War—a new prototype of German submarine surfaced three miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The vessel attacked an unarmed tugboat and its four barges. A handful of the shells fired by the U-boat's deck guns struck Nauset Beach, giving the modest town of Orleans the distinction of being the only spot in the United States to receive enemy fire during the entire war. On land, lifesavers from the US Coast Guard launched a surfboat under heavy enemy fire to save the sailors trapped aboard the tug and barges. In the air, seaplanes from the Chatham Naval Air Station dive-bombed the enemy raider with payloads of TNT. This book chronicles the attack from the first shell fired to the aftermath, and celebrates the resilience of a small New England town.
