    Going back to when lighter than air craft were the new technology, I’d like to recommend “Slide Rule: Autobiography of an Engineer by Nevil Shute”; it’s excellent. If you can imagine climbing the skin and making repairs in flight, this is for you.

    Truly an amazing attempted feat, never before done. History and who knows what else can come from this.  

    Also amazing, while this significant story is over looked, the preceeding story about some “MUD” captivates over 122 comments. True a knee-jerk society we become.
