Andr by Henri Lachambre

In the 21st century - the age of the budget airline - where quick and reliable air travel is available to a large segment of society, it seems hard to comprehend that it is less than 250 years since the first human took to the skies. Although the wing of the bird seemed like the most obvious natural mechanism to attempt replicate, it was actually contained hot air, as demonstrated by the Montgolfiers and their balloon, that gave birth to the era human aviation. Since the first manned balloon flight in 1783, developments have come thick and fast, the airship, the aeroplane, and finally the space shuttle. This reprint of a classic publication by Henri Lachambre and Alexis Machuron tells the story of S. A. Andrée's 1897 attempt to reach the North Pole by hydrogen balloon. Complete with illustrations and a brand new introduction this work is a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in the fantastic and majestic lighter-than-air period of aeronautical history
