Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: An Autobiography

By Michael J Neufeld (Editor), Alex M Spencer (Editor), John Glenn (Foreword by), John Dailey (Afterword by)
Designed to convey the awe of a visitor first walking into the world's largest showplace of aviation history, this Autobiography headlines the incredible collections, both on view and behind the scenes, of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The official story and insiders' tales of the museum are shared by its curators, the people who know it best. Spectacular photography and fascinating backstage glimpses show off the jaw-dropping collection, including well-known and beloved artifacts like Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis and the Apollo 11 command module, as well as rare treasures not displayed to the public. For aircraft and spaceflight enthusiasts, for readers interested in science and technology, and for all who admire the civil and military legacy of aviation, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: An Autobiography will be a welcome adventure.


    REVIEW QUOTES
"Informative as this work's text is, visuals are its preeminent value: with about 700 color and black-and-white photographs, it will absorb aviation browsers and could well incite pilgrimages to the museum." --Booklist

"The most popular museum in the U.S. has a pedigree in flight extending back to the Civil War's observation balloons, a history this volume celebrates." -Booklist
