Contents: When this book was published it had been fifty-two years since three pairs of copper wings were placed on the wall outside the Saint Francis Chapel at The Mission Inn of Riverside, California. Etched into the wings were the signatures of three of the most prominent military fliers of that time.
At the time of publication this number had grown to 141 fliers including Orville Wright, Eddie Rickenbacker, Hap Arnold, Jimmie Doolittle, Amelia Earhart, John Glenn, and Chuck Yeager to name a few. This book tells the stories of each of those fliers and how they were selected to be on the wall. Illustrated with photographs. Indexed by name.
