Part of the Images of Aviation Series, this is one of the most outstanding picture books published by Arcadia. It has amazing pictures of when the Kanawha River afforded the only place in Kanawha County where planes could land, the flattening of a mountain to build a new airport after the previous one was rendered unusable when the building of a rubber plant blocked its runways, and even the aviation program at West Virginia State College when it was an HBCU without the H. Most of the pictures here had never been previously published.The author, Nicholas Keller, is the Assistant Director of Yeager Airport.
