An adventure story like no other! 16 May 2013
By Richard Brumer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's a little known fact that Captain Jack Alcock and Lieutenant Arthur Brown were the first to cross the Atlantic years before Charles Lindbergh made his first solo flight. It was something I didn't know and was intrigued by the fact that this first flight was quite an adventure in its own right.
The book held me spellbound! It took me from passages which told of the excitement of their biplane recovering from a spin from fifty feet above the waves, to the simplicity of Alcock and Brown passing notes to each other about the navigation during their dangerous flight.
"Tomorrow Has Wings" is an amazing story about the beginning of aviation and its heroes. The author writes with an easy style and a voice filled with warmth suggesting a tone from an earlier time. This makes "Tomorrow Has Wings" all the more captivating.

ADVENTUROUS 3 Oct. 2013
By Edee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Joe Alcock has managed to write this true story of the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic in 1919 by the British aviator, Jack Alcock, in a most personal way breathing life and depth into the character. Although they have the same name, he states they are not related. The author first introduces us to Jack as a young boy growing up in England, and then into adulthood where he starts building "flying machines," and onto becoming the great pilot who decides to take the flight of his life. His description of this famous flight is breath-taking and spot on. In this well written, beautiful story of a young man and his dream, we get to know the true facts about a wonderful piece of history.For all you history buffs and adventure seekers, I highly recommend "Tomorrow Has Wings."
Tomorrow has Wings 6 Sept. 2013

Tomorrow Has Wings: The Story of Captain Jack Alcock - First to Fly the Atlantic Non-Stop in 1919

This was truly an intriguing, eye-opening historical story. As I was reading the big surprise was that I had never heard this before. Surprising such a monumental event has received such a minimal amount of exposure.

Although not a pilot, the story was easy to follow and understand. It is a remarkable story of flight, also a remarkable story of what man can accomplish when they start with a dream. I bought books for all of my grandsons.

A Great Book long over due. Thanks to Joseph Alcott for his hard work and long hours to bring this compelling story to light.
The Birth of British Aviation 18 Aug. 2013
By S.L. Menear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Author Joseph F. Alcock did extensive research for this first-person account of the early days of British aviation. The story is told as if RAF Captain Jack Alcock were speaking directly to the readers. It is a fascinating story filled with pictures of obscure early aircraft and told in a personal way that pulls readers into the drama and humor. I am a retired airline pilot, and Alcock's account of the trans-Atlantic flight in 1919 left me breathless. This book is a must read for aviation enthusiasts the world over.
I enjoyed this well researched story 12 July 2014
By David Mallegol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tomorrow Has Wings by Joseph Alcock is the story of the first two men to fly over the Atlantic Ocean non-stop. Most people think it was Charles Lindbergh who is so famous, because he was the first to cross the ocean by himself. This novel is written by a descendant of the pilot, Jack Alcock from personal letters and unpublished information. The co-pilot and navigator was Arthur Brown was the navigator. I enjoyed this well researched story. A fellow author, David Mallegol.
