David Beaty

For those interested David Beaty's wife wrote a very detailed and interesting biography about him - "Winged Life" by Betty Campbell Beaty.
It has all the details of his career and when the books were written.

Well, well.

As It happens, I also have a book by Betty Beaty; I'd often wondered if she was related to David.

It's called "Maiden Flight", and published by Mills and Boone; which sort of tells you all you need to know about it!

I don't think Charles Lindbergh or E.K.Gann fit into this category .
Rilly ??
Many people have seen the James Stewart film...but how many know that the film was based on CL's own book...also how many people know that Ann Lindbergh also wrote autobios about their long distance flights together...just sharing info on a forum
