About

New Zealand's Long White clouds have been the playground for 'Flying machines' for over a hundred years, and Words on Wings fascinating collection of aviation stories brings together a selection of the best writing by and about Kiwis with wings. 

The 100th anniversary of flight occurs in 2003, and aviators around the world will be celebrating with air shows, events and commemorative products.

WORDS ON WINGS is a collection of some of the most interesting New Zealand stories concerning flight. From the days of the early pioneers, through the trauma of the war years to the fiscal forces that buffeted Air New Zealand at the turn of the century, this book contains a wide range of entertaining and informative extracts. Featured items include a piece on aviatrix Jean Batten, whose determination saw her overcome enormous obstacles to fly solo halfway round the world. The war years includes terrifying stories, including that of a pilot forced to abandon his plane, only to find that he - and his parachute - were alight. There is a fascinating account of New Zealands first air accident to go to court; a piece about hunting deer from the air; a description of an airborne trip to Antarctica; even an account of a trip on the Graf Zeppelin.

This fascinating collection will appeal to anyone with the slightest interest in the realm of the skies.
