Was Keith Harris’s Orville really named after the first-ever flyer? What exactly is a ‘Spitfire’? Why did Richard Branson try to cross the Atlantic in a balloon when he owned an airline? THESE are the questions that fail to keep proper aeronautical historians awake – but no matter, From Wax Wings to Flying Drones is here to answer them. Chock-full of important stuff like planes, pilots and pioneers such as the Wright brothers, Amelia Earhart and that man off the telly who used to fly on Concorde, this is a book for everyone who’s ever watched a plane in the sky and thought, ‘I wonder what its registration is?’
