This is the fascinating story of the dream of a completely new aircraft, a hybrid of the plane and the rigid airship - huge, wingless, moving slowly through the lower sky. John McPhee chronicles the perhaps unfathomable perseverance of the aircraft's sucessive progenitors... under the nosewheel, Olcott and the fuselage around him now weighed five pounds less, the better to nose up out of ground effect and into the sky. ... Linkenhoker, toothpick dancing, raced along the taxiway in his Dodge full of engineers.
