This compact handbook spans the development of balloons and airships since man first left the ground nearly two centuries ago and traveled through the air in a vehicle of his own design. Eighty pages of full color illustrated balloons and airships - from the original Montgolfier brothers, cloud in a paper bag, to the extraordinarily similar sports balloon of our own day. The accompanying text discusses each vehicle's history, construction and operating details.

For model makers, aeronautic buffs, and historians alike:

  • the giant Zeppelin airships that operated as the worlds first airline service
  • the, monsters of purple twilight, which rained terror on London in the first world war
  • the first practical parachute
  • the unsung but highly successful blimps of the US Navy ....and many more
