“The skies beckoned and with true number 8 wire ‘know-how-can-do’ form, Kiwis launched themselves into the heavens and into history. In WINGS OVER NEW ZEALAND, a social history of flight in this country, Richard Pearse, Sir Henry Wigram and Jean Batten take their place in the line-up of famous and not-so-famous Kiwi aviation pioneers. From our enigmatic beginnings, through trans-Tasman crossings, World War achievement and loss, aerial mapping and agricultural innovation, the building of our national airlines and the Erebus disaster, to the market forces and mass air travel from the end of the twentieth century, this book tells the story of the evolution and development of commercial aviation and its meaning for New Zealanders. In a combination of lively text and superb illustrations, from the first uncontrolled hops to corporate commuter services, WINGS OVER NEW ZEALAND pays homage to those Kiwi pioneers and entrepreneurs who lived the aviation dream, the magic of flight that brought the world closer.”
