Skyfaring - Mark Vanhoenacker
Call Number: TL710 .V345 2015
ISBN: 9780385351812
Publication Date: 2015-06-02
A poetic and nuanced exploration of the human experience of flight. Mark Vanhoenacker, a 747 pilot who left academia and a career in the business world to pursue his childhood dream of flight, asks us to reimagine what we--both as pilots and as passengers--are actually doing when we enter the world between departure and discovery. In a seamless fusion of history, politics, geography, meteorology, ecology, family, and physics, Vanhoenacker vaults across geographical and cultural boundaries; above mountains, oceans, and deserts; through snow, wind, and rain, renewing a simultaneously humbling and almost superhuman activity that affords us unparalleled perspectives on the planet we inhabit and the communities we form.

The Wright Brothers - David McCullough
Call Number: TL540.W7 M3825 2015
ISBN: 9781476728742
Publication Date: 2015-05-05
On a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two unknown brothers from Ohio changed history. The age of flight had begun, with the first heavier-than-air, powered machine carrying a pilot. David McCullough, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, tells the surprising, profoundly American story of Wilbur and Orville Wright. They were men of exceptional courage and determination, and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity, much of which they attributed to their upbringing. The house they lived in had no electricity or indoor plumbing, but there were books aplenty, supplied mainly by their preacher father, and they never stopped reading. Wilbur was unquestionably a genius. Orville had such mechanical ingenuity as few had ever seen.
