Spinning through Clouds: Tales from an Early Hoosier Aviator
Spinning through Clouds: Tales from an Early Hoosier Aviator

Max Knight began flying in 1936 at the age of ten. At his father's airport in Lynn, Indiana, he met many of the state's aviation pioneers, learning to fly from some of them. He flew in many planes, from Piper Cubs to the Tin Goose, the first transcontinental passenger plane. Suitable for young readers and adults, the book also tells national stories from the early period of aviation, introducing air-racing champions such as Roscoe Turner and Jacqueline Cochran as well as better-known pilots such as Amelia Earhart and Howard Hughes.
