DescriptionNorthern Ireland has an enviable, extensive and often unappreciated role in aviation history. With a focus on civil aviation from the first passenger taken aloft from Magilligan Strand by a young Harry Ferguson, through a century of pioneering ventures and developments in comfort and service, this illustrated volume highlights that history and the people who played a part. Using 200 images, the authors take a chronological look at civil aircraft, airports, operations and developments. Aircraft from many backgrounds are featured from early designs, conversions from military use and flying boats, to those expanding the capacity of civil services and ultimately the jet revolution. Details of both locations and people help to bring the story to life. Written by two experts on the topic and drawing on the archive and collection of the Ulster Aviation Society, this volume contains much previously unpublished material.
