20th Century Passenger Flying Boats
From Henry Fabre’s first successful take-off from water, to the introduction of a hull (rather than floats) by American Glenn Curtiss, to the world-wide development of huge, ocean-crossing flying boats on both sides of the Atlantic – the passenger flying boat era continuous to fascinate aviation enthusiasts and historians alike. It is a sadly missed epoch of flight.
In this pictorial account, the reader embarks on a fast-moving journey, from the pioneering early years to the present days. The book features images sourced from private, public and corporate archives around the world.
