The Flying Cowboy, Samuel Cody, Britain’s First Airman

Author Peter Reese gives an authoritative look at manlifter Samuel Franklin Cody's aviation exploits in Britain. A naturalised British citizen (born in the USA), Cody came to England at the age of twenty-three and became a pioneer of early aviation, experimenting first with kites and later with engine driven aircraft, making the first powered flight in Britain.
