Wooden Wings over the Golden Gate: Early Aviation in the San Francisco Bay Area 1910-1939
Northern California airfield development, pioneer pilots, airplane builders, and risk takers 19101939.

Wooden Wings over the Golden Gate is the only book to give a detailed account of early flying in the Bay Area. Historian Allen Herr recalls the aviation pioneers who flew weekly exhibitions promoting the Panama-Pacific International Exposition for fifteen months prior to its San Francisco opening. These pioneers formed flying schools, built airports, manufactured aircraft, and competed against each other. Herr captures the energy behind the Bay Area aviation movement, tells who was involved, and describes the effects of their extraordinary determination and achievements. --Larry Jackson
