In 1916 St. Augustine got its first school of aviation, which trained Canadian flyers for military service in Europe. It was completed in November 1918, just as the armistice was signed, so it saw little use and was soon returned to recreational purposes. The elimination of the field did not eliminate flight in St. Augustine

James Horgan covers more than aviation in St. Louis, he gives the reader an overall background for the early days of flight throughout the world, and how many pioneers in the field made trips to St. Louis to fly their balloons or aircraft. Little known events that would be hard to find elsewhere, if they could be found at all, are covered, from the good to the bad to the humorous. The first flight under the Eads bridge by heavier than air aircraft, the senseless vandalism of Alberto Santos-Dumont's balloon which was sliced up with a knife in St. Louis, the first flight in an aircraft by a US President, farmers taking potshots at balloonists to down the balloons, thinking the enormous manned balloons were advertising balloons released hours earlier, for which a $10 reward was offered for anyone who retrieved them and turned them in (fortunately, no injuries resulted). The book has scores of photographs, and covers events and personalities from the 1830's, to the 1960's, with some information right up to the date of publication in 1984. Extensively referenced, anyone with a general interest in the history of aviation will find details of events and participants that have been almost lost to history, but brought back to life in this fascinating work.
