I am currently reading "The Flight of the Century: Charles Lindbergh and the Rise of American Aviation" by Thomas Kessner. I'm about half way through and am enjoying the wonderful detail describing this amazing story.
Other aviation books I have read:
"Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand. Currently on the NY Times best seller list. WWII saga of a B24 crew that went down in the pacific. It's a true story and the primary character in the book is still alive today!
"Candy Bombers" by Andrei Cherny. The true story of the Berlin Airlift after WWII.
"East to the Dawn" by Susan Butler. Amelia Earhardt's life story. The recent movie was based on this book. The book is much better than the movie.
"Wilber and Orville" by Fred Howard. The title says it all...
"Flight of Passage" by Rinker Buck. The true story of two teenage boys flying a Piper Cub across the United States in the 1960s.
"Hornet Flight" by Ken Follett. WWII saga about RAF vs the Luftwaffe with an unlikely hero.
All of these books I highly recommend to anyone with a passion for aviation.
