Oct 13, 2011 Wayne Feulner rated it it was amazing
Recommends it for: Anyone interested in Golden Age Aviation, Gee Bee aircraft, and early aviation
Recommended to Wayne by: Author Henry Haffke
This book, written by Tom Granville's daughter June Dakin, in essence is the true story of the Granville Brothers and their influential "Golden Age" aircraft. Together they have been the target of hack writers seeking sensationalism since the 1930's. The book not only lays out and backs up the facts as they truly transpired, but dives into the lives and times of the very real characters involved with the historical Gee Bee aircraft. It is the definitive bible for Gee Bee history. Thanks, Wayne ...more
