While we already enjoy the fruits of the developments in the aviation industry today, it has taken lots of blood, sweat, tears, and even lives to get to this point. The marvel of engineering that is the modern passenger and commercial airplane has had a storied past, and this is what author Norman Currey wrote in his book, “Airplane Stories and Histories,” with the purpose of educating people to appreciate and love aviation and its roots.
