Product description

Synopsis

George Marrett, a test pilot for Howard Hughes, gives a fascinating insider's account of the aviation genius who set speed records in the 1930s and went on to develop some of America's most famous aircraft and weapons. Marrett takes readers inside Hughes's complex world - a world that has kept its secrets for nearly six decades. Both a gifted storyteller and an expert in the field of aviation, the author integrates stories of Hughes the ace pilot with Hughes the designer who insisted on test-flying every plane he built and Hughes the businessman who became America's first billionaire.
