Descrizione prodotto

L'autore

Edward (Ted) Heikell and Robert (Bob) Heikell are brothers born in Yakima, Washington, and raised in Wapato, Washington, about seventy miles southwest of the town of Wenatchee. Ted was born in 1938. He graduated from Wapato High School and later from the University of Washington with a Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering. Bob was the oldest of five Heikell children and was born in 1933. He graduated from Wapato High School and then went on to obtain his Masters degree in Education at the Central Washington College of Education in Ellensburg, Washington. Ted worked for The Boeing Company in Seattle for thirty-four years in both their commercial and military divisions. He ended up being the proposal manager and technology manager for a prestigious military contract. His leisure time was mostly spent hiking, skiing, fishing, hunting. He also enjoyed flying in his spare time and was a part owner of a Cessna 182 for fifteen years. Since his retirement in 1996, he obtained his commercial instrument license but later got out of private flying as he advanced in age. This is his first attempt at literature, but he has two DVDs on the market pertaining to hunting and fishing. Bob was born in 1933 and worked most of his years as the principal of several intermediate and grade schools—primarily in the Moses Lake, Washington, area, which is located about forty miles southeast of the town of Wenatchee. Bob also holds a commercial pilots license. During six of his years since retiring from public schools, he served as the center director for the Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Moses Lake. He loves the opportunity to verbally communicate to crowds and organized groups. His leisure time was mostly spent hiking, hunting, flying, and building model airplanes. To aide the Wenatchee annual event with its sister city, Misawa, Japan, Bob built a twelve-foot wingspan radio-controlled model of the Miss Veedol airplane, a J-300 Bellanca Long-Distance Special. In doing so, he became more and more familiar with the story of Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon Jr. His model-building skills became quite well-known as he received many national awards for his model’s physical and flying accuracy. One of these models hangs from the rotunda dome inside the city hall of East Wenatchee.

Passable read, though it escaped the authors' notice that the place an airplane is kept is "hangar", not "hanger".
5.0 su 5 stelle GREAT BOOK, READ IT IN ONE DAY, COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN 5 settembre 2012

Formato: Copertina flessibile
I started this book on a Sunday morning. Didn't really know what to expect. But I was not able to put it down. Finished it later that day. What a great story!!! I can't wait for the Movie to come out. It seems a shame that this story is not more well known. But I guess that is the fate of history and picking your landing spots!!!.

How can Boeing and aeronautics be such an import of our local history and somehow Pangborn's story be virtually unknown? I am very glad to have read this book. The research is excellent, taking it beyond the average 'historical fiction'.
