Known as the "Air Capital of the World," Wichita, Kansas, has been associated with aviation longer than any city in the world. This photo-essay follows its progress from a "cowtown" to the early days of Clyde Cessna's daring aerial feats and his successful aircraft company, which inspired Stearman, Travel Air, Piper and others to form. From there, the industry in Wichita even branched into military aviation and aerospace, retaining its leadership position even today. 128 pgs., 195 B&W photos, 6½"x 9¼", sfbd.
