By the Seats of Their Pants looks at our heroes of the air: including Captain Robert Little Australia's greatest ever war ace; Harry Hawker and his dramatic bid to conquer the Atlantic in 1919; Chubbie Miller and her record flights to America; and Lores Bonney Australia's greatest pioneer airwoman. Prepare for many flights of adventure as this book takes off on a journey beginning in 1910, when the American magician Houdini and Australia's Fred Custance made the first powered flights. The story of challenge and excitement continues right up to the 1970s when Denys Dalton and Terry Gwynn-Jones set Australia's last great world record.
