Dawn Over Kitty Hawk
8,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The names Wilbur and Orville Wright stand out in history as the inventors of the airplane, but lost in history are those who in the closing years of the nineteenth century and the first years of the twentieth shared the same passion: to develop the first powered aircraft. Some spent entire lives and fortunes chasing the dream, including men like the embittered Augustus Herring, who'd flown a heavier than air machine for several seconds in 1898; the pompous Samuel Pierpont Langley, of the Smithsonian Institution, who was backed by the US War Department, and even the legendary American inventor Alexander Graham Bell. These men, along with European competitors such as Louis Blériot, chased what many believed to be the impossible dream of manned, powered flight. But the Wright Brothers were the first to succeed, thanks to a combination of courage, genius, and downright stubbornness! Many followed in their footsteps, including such arch-competitors as Glenn Curtiss. The Wright Brothers' father was a huge factor who dominated their lives, trying to control their every thought and action. A bishop of the United Brethren Church, Milton Wright wanted his sons to succeed in their bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio, not risk their lives. Bishop Wright saw no reason for his sons to risk everything on an isolated, windy beach in faraway North Carolina a beach called Kitty Hawk. He tried to quash their dream, but Orville and Wilbur rebelled, ultimately proving the impossible by flying on December 17, 1903. They brought the dawn of aviation, the industry that dominated the twentieth century and set the stage for the space race.

However, it soon becomes apparent that the stairway has become the device of his destruction. On a trip to Cleveland, Ohio, Peter White is flying his airplane over East Ridgeville when he spots an old, ill-kept mansion. When he makes inquiries about the property, he learns that it's known as the Barrington Haunted Castle. Thinking he might purchase the property, he takes his girlfriend, Claire Whitley, to East Ridgeville to see the Realtor. There, they hear that Josef Barrington had killed his wife and three children almost a hundred years ago and was duly hanged. Peter and Claire go out to inspect the mansion and discover a strange stairway in the living room. Although they think of the stairs as the whim of a crazy, old man, they are forced to change their minds one stormy night when the stairway becomes a gateway to the bizarre.

911 UFO Recordings: The Trumball County Sightin...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

These Trumbull County 911 recordings are real. There are no actors or re-enactments....and no names have been changed to protect the innocent. These recordings are those of the actual police radio dispatch, from the Trumbull county 911 center in northeastern Ohio. We have edited out any dead air space between transmissions, but have otherwise left the recordings unaltered.The incident occurred on December 14th 1994 at approximately 11 pm and lasted for over nine hours. Calls began to come into the Trumbull county 911 center, and local TV station WYTV Channel 33 in Youngstown, Ohio from concerned, and at times, frantic local residents. But the nature of these calls were anything but routine. Instead, callers reported seeing a large, luminous, saucer shaped object that made no sound, and hovered awfully low to the ground. They were certain it wasn't an airplane, helicopter, weather balloon, falling star, or....the planet Venus. Initially, the dispatch operator and officers on duty that evening, can be heard actually joking about the situation. However...the mood would soon become quite serious, as visual contact began to be confirmed by patrolman from several different stations, including The Howland and Liberty townships, as well as Hubbard, Girard and Trumbull County police departments. Officers described the UFO as a huge, brightly luminescent object, with multicolored pulsating lights, and lit up the sky, and lit up the ground below it in an erie red light, as if it were daylight. According to officers and residents, the object made no noise, and was seen hovering above houses and disturbingly low to the ground. 1. Language: English. Narrator: uncredited.

Chasing the Powhatan Arrow: A Travelogue in Eco...
9,95 € *

From its inception in the 1880s, The Norfolk & Western Railway primarily carried freight but as a sideline, it always provided passenger service. A profitable, well-run company, N&W only accepted the very best. As World War II ended, N&W offered several named trains along its main line, including the Cavalier, the Pocahontas, and its daytime flagship the Powhatan Arrow. Pulled initially by the magnificent Class J steam locomotives that N&W manufactured at its Roanoke Shops, the Powhatan Arrow provided fast, luxurious, and memorable service for three decades before passenger service was discontinued, giving way to automobile and airplane travel nationwide. The corridor traversed by the Powhatan Arrow is a wonderfully complex, geographically fascinating, socially diverse, and economically mixed path through Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio. The vicissitudes of time have endowed the communities along the way with a broad spectrum of fortunes, branching from prosperity to failure. With railroads no longer carrying passengers, Michael Abraham duplicated the route as closely as possible by car, motorcycle, bicycle, and even canoe, gathering each area's history and culture and profiling entrepreneurs, historians, railfans, and everyday people in this enlightening, humorous look at a swath of America's past, present, and future. 1.

Enduring Courage: Ace Pilot Eddie Rickenbacker ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The sensational true story of Eddie Rickenbacker, America's greatest flying ace. At the turn of the 20th century two new technologies - the car and airplane - took the nation’s imagination by storm as they burst, like comets, into American life. The brave souls that leaped into these dangerous contraptions and pushed them to unexplored extremes became new American heroes: The race car driver and the flying ace. No individual did more to create and intensify these raw new roles than the tall, gangly Eddie Rickenbacker, who defied death over and over with such courage and pluck that a generation of Americans came to know his face better than the president’s. The son of poor, German-speaking Swiss immigrants in Columbus, Ohio, Rickenbacker overcame the specter of his father’s violent death, a debilitating handicap, and, later, accusations of being a German spy, to become the American military ace of aces in World War I and a Medal of Honor recipient. He and his high-spirited, all-too-short-lived pilot comrades, created a new kind of aviation warfare, as they pushed their machines to the edge of destruction - and often over it - without parachutes, radios, or radar. Enduring Courage is the electrifying story of the beginning of America’s love affair with speed - and how one man above all the rest showed a nation the way forward. No simple daredevil, he was an innovator on the racetrack, a skilled aerial dualist and squadron commander, and founder of Eastern Air Lines. Decades after his heroics against the Red Baron’s Flying Circus, he again showed a war-weary nation what it took to survive against nearly insurmountable odds when he and seven others endured a harrowing three-week ordeal adrift without food or water in the Pacific during World War II. For the first time, Enduring Courage peels back the layers of hero to reveal the man himself. With impeccable research and a gripping narrative, John F. Ross tells the unfor 1. Language: English.
