This book includes 110 Great Aviation Stories.
This classic book portrays 100+ oddball airplanes and obscure aircraft, along with colorful stories about them and their owners/pilots. Includes some never-before-seen mystery aircraft.
T-Hangar Tales may have a familiar feel to it as you read! Why not? Joe Juptner's U.S. Civil Aircraft Series covered the histories, performance and specifications of airplanes manufactured since 1927 and the series has become the Bible for the antiquers. Ask any aviation buff to relate the specifications and qualities of any old airplanes and he will inevitably quote “Joe Juptner”.
This is Joe Juptner's first non-ATC (Approved Type Certificate) series book. This book picks up where the series left off.
Juptner went deep into his voluminous files to find not only photos of some of the rare odd-ball aircraft that did not make it into production, but to find stories of the builders, pilots, businessmen and women who were associated with such airplanes.
Open to almost any page and you will find a remarkable photo and a little-known story to warm your aviation heart!
Famous names reverberate throughout these pages: Pietenpol, Laird, Mantz, Crosly, Budd, Pioneer, Bluebird, GeeBee, Arrow, Abrams and many, many more!
But there are also lots of names you have not heard, but will enjoy discovering: Cardinal, Cruizaire, Roam-Air, Simplex, Hawke Duster, Kimball Beetle, Nicholson Sport, Air-Istocrat, Tipton Sport, and many, many more!
This is the material that the late, world renowned aviation historian Joe Juptner loved, and you will too!
