The history of aviation extends for more than two thousand years, from the earliest forms of aviation such as kites and attempts at tower jumping to supersonic and hypersonic flight by powered, heavier-than-air jets. Kite flying in China dates back to several hundred years BC and slowly spread around the world. It is thought to be the earliest example of man-made flight.

The history of aviation has extended over more than two thousand years, from the earliest forms of aviation, kites and attempts at tower jumping, to supersonic, and hypersonic flight by powered, heavier-than-air jets. From the earliest legends there have been stories of men strapping birdlike wings, stiffened cloaks or other devices to themselves and attempting to fly, typically by jumping off a tower. The Greek legend of Daedalus and Icarus is one of the earliest known; others originated from India, China and the European Middle Age.

Mel had no authority over ATC, which answered only to the Federal Aviation Administration with headquarters in Washington. (Thriller, Adventure ) The story takes place mainly over the course of one evening and night, as a massive snowstorm plays havoc with airport operations. But relationships between controllers and airport management were good, and Mel saw to it they stayed that way. An airport, any airport, was an odd complexity of overlapping authority.

There are few more significant areas of historical study for twentieth century America than the development of aviation. For residents of the western part of the United States aviation was an especially significant engine of change, owing to the unique combination of open spaces, relatively small numbers of population, distances between urban areas, and, a pioneering spirit.
"Winqs Over Idaho" is a useful large-format illustrated history chronicling the growth of aviation in one Rocky Mountain state. The author describes in 16 chapters of referenced narrative and 184 photographs the aviation story of Idaho. Beginning with lighter-than-air activities with kites and balloons in the nineteenth century, Arthur A. Hart moves quickly into early air meets in Lewiston and Boise. He expends much effort dealing with barnstorming and daredevils but then moves on to the much more significant air mail activities of the 1920s and 1930s, the first time airplanes undertook practical activities.
From there, Hart delineates the development of a wide variety of aviation activities in Idaho. For example, he describes the maturation of a unique cadre of flyers in Idaho during the 1920s, the Mountain pilots--also called bush pilots in other parts of the world--who knew the terrain well and provided aircraft for hire for a variety of business, government, and sporting activities. In many instances inheritors of the legacy of these earlier skilled flyers still provide the only quick linkage to isolated areas in the region. His discussion of the growth of airline service is a welcome addition while still leaving room for additional work. Hart's description of airborne firefighting was useful for its detail about Idaho, while his narrative on coyote hunting from the air was both illuminating and slightly disturbing. His commentary on women aviators and the development of a state infrastructure for aviation are most worthwhile.
Arthur Hart finds, quite rightly, that World War II was the truly significant transforming force for aviation in Idaho, just as it was for the rest of the nation. The establishment of civilian pilot training programs at many locations by the Civil Aviation Authority, the creation of military airfields, and the expansion of knowledge about and access to aircraft (to say nothing of the technological developments that made aviation relatively safe and reliable) all combined to fundamentally alter public acceptance and use of airplanes in their daily lives. Hart's chapters on this period are especially valuable in beginning to understand this revolution.
Hart has done a creditable job of providing a general description of aviation in the state. While there is much positive that can be said for the book, "Winqs Over Idaho" lacks any analysis and interpretive structure. Hart understands this, and writes in his foreword that his book is only a beginning of inquiry into the subject. He hopes that "others will take up the needed and fascinating task of researching in depth the history of aviation in every Idaho town and region" (p. 6). Aviation in the American West very badly needs the in-depth study Hart recommends.

I give the book only four stars because it is not really a history of aviation in Idaho; this book is really about the history of aviation in the Boise region of Idaho and how that may or may not influenced other portions of the state aeronautically. If it really was about the aeronautical history of the whole state, at very least, the names of all the important airports in the state would surely have been mentioned in the text (there are not that many of them), but they are not; meanwhile just the few airports that were directly influenced greatly by and/or are present in the Boise area are the only ones mentioned by name. Moreover, the book would have mentioned the feat of flying Air Force One in and out of Fanning Field in Idaho Falls during the Clinton Administration; this two-time ocurrance was a demonstration of the great flying skill of the Air Force pilots that are selected to fly that aircraft. Furthermore, also in the modern chapters, it would have indicated that one of the largest and best privately-run and -funded warbird museums in the U.S.A. is in Rexburg, Idaho, (the Legacy Flight Museum) or that one of the premiere warbird restoration firms (Pacific Warbirds) is located in Idaho Falls, Idaho; both locations not in the Boise area, but in different region of the state, S.E. Idaho.

For a book that can start a discussion about aviation in Idaho or especially the Boise area, it is good enough to earn four stars. In its own way, this volume is just a large version of one those Arcadia Publishing's Images of Aviation series books. There is more text in this volume than one of those so I personally like it much better. To have earned five stars, it would have to be tripled in size and have spoken about the other two sectors of Idaho a great deal more.

My comments about Launius's review that I have removed, as of this date[1603.12], because people reading this get lost in this portion of my review and lose the point of my review overall.
