Aviation Passion - Interesting and Well Done
A historical audiobook focusing on the growth of the US aviation First World Flight is a begins in 1924. There are four airmen and General Billy Mitchell all who were responsible for creating and saving the US aviation program through their patriotism, creativity, and dedication. The struggles of Billy Mitchell and his airmen is captivating.
I found the book to be interesting, although it was long. This is perfect for someone with a passion for aviation, military, politics or history. The personal touches – the information about the families that are not well-known was interesting as well. By the end of the audio, I felt I almost knew Billy Mitchell. His passion was successfully portrayed and communicated through Spencer Lane’s writing.
I thought the narrator, Dave Wright, performed the book beautifully. His voice was smooth, gentle yet passionate. I could listen to Wright for hours; there is something comforting about his voice.
The amount of time and energy spent in the research of this book and its many components must have been overwhelming but so worth it!
There were no issues with quality or audio production of this audiobook.

World Flight Voyager
As the pilot who flu the 1986 Voyager non-stop-non refueled I found the book to be an excellent piece of literary documented prose.
I had the honor in 1987 as my Voyager was being enshrined in the NASM to visit with Gen Lee Wade beside his world World Cruiser
