The Golden Age of Flying Boats

The Golden Age of

Flying Boats

Until the 1950s, when land-based airports became commonplace, the flying boats of Pan American and Imperial Airways took passengers to the corners of the globe in luxury that rivalled the great ocean liners. Peter Pigott, Canada’s foremost aviation author, has tracked the history of these extraordinary aircraft and their unrivalled levels of exclusivity and comfort. Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 pictures in colour and mono.
