Will Rogers & Wiley Post : death at Barrow by Bryan B Sterling( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wiley Post was a world famous pilot, a mechanical genius and pioneer of aviation. He made aeronautical history when he set a record flying around the world with Harold Gatty, and he broke that record two years later flying solo. Post was the first person to fly the jet stream and the suit he designed for his substratospheric flight was a forerunner of the spacesuits used by NASA in its Apollo missions. When Rogers and Post crashed in Walakpa Lagoon near Barrow, Alaska, on August 15, 1935, it was the tragic loss of two American icons and international heroes. Their deaths affected most American homes. Rogers was a film star, syndicated columnist, and radio broadcaster and Post, an American hero of aviation, was always in the news for his daring exploits. Their loss was deeply felt
