Detailed Product Description

London, 1933, 3rd printing or 1935 5th printing. 279 pp, 57 b/w photos, diagrams, maps. Blue cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. May have faded spine and damaged lower front cover or bright but bowed cover. Interior is clean and unmarked. Very Good to Near Fine overall.

This first flight over Everest was a big news story at the same time as the climbing expeditions. A pair of 3D Glasses in rear pastedown pocket for viewing the Anaglyph on p.222. Includes, for example, the following: Preliminary Steps in Technical Planning; Oxygen on the Everest Flight; Air Photographic Survey; The Hundred Years' War Against Everest, 1823-1923; Strategy, Tactics and Objectives; The Flight over Kangchenjunga and the Second Flight to Everest; Filming the Flight, and more. 

John Buchan, author of The Thirty-Nine Steps and MP at Westminster provides the Foreword. This is the account of the first flight over Mt. Everest in April 1933. Dressed in multilayers of sheepskin clothing, with built-in electric heating, the pilots, relying on rudimentary oxygen equipment were seated in the open cockpits of two fragile biplanes carrying only enough fuel for no more than fifteen minutes of flying time over the mountain. The lead aircraft was equipped with a fully automated Eagle III Williamson aerial camera to take the first images of the roof of the world. The two aviators were 28-year-old Flight Lieutenant David Fowler McIntyre and 30-year-old Douglas Douglas-Hamilton, Marquis of Clydesdale and commander of the 602 City of Glasgow squadron of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force. Their flight made them world famous. A documentary film of their adventure, Wings Over Everest, won a Hollywood Oscar in 1934.
