Aug 2011 Tales of Timeless Wings by Sparky Barnes Sargent
Great news for everyone interested in the history and preservation of the antique & vintage aircraft we love and love to read about. Lady taildragger pilot and aviation author Sparky Barnes Sargent has a new book out! I met Sparky at Sun ‘N Fun a couple years ago and appreciate her talent and focus on aviation history.
“Tales of Timeless Wings” conveys the stories of more than a dozen pilots who have devoted a great portion of their lives to the preservation of aircraft that have been in their families for decades. This collection of stories highlights each familyâ€™s participation in flying, maintaining, and restoring these airplanesâ€”in many cases, as they passed from one generation to the next. A number of these aircraft were even designed and built by family members. It is pilots such as these who are safeguarding and perpetuating our aviation historyâ€”and having fun while doing so!
Tales of Timeless Wings is authored by Sparky Barnes Sargent, with a foreword by Norm Goyer, and is published by DGA Enterprises, Inc. 6â€x9â€ paperback. 236 pages with 401 photos, including an insert with color photos of 24 airplanes.
