Very Good condition. "Many amateurs of aviation history have, like train spotters, a connoisseur's passion for the technical minutiae. But aviation history is about the people as well as the planes, and Diamonds in the Sky is about the passengers who for sixty years have taken their courage in both hands and decided to fly. This is a highly readable and entertaining account of the ways in which flying has ministered to human needs, whims and follies."
