Description - The American Airport by Geza Szurovy

The American Airport covers the architectural history of American airports as they reflect developments in aviation.Beginning with the wooden track that launched the Wright Flyer from the sands of Kitty Hawk in 1903, the text traces airport history to the first military aerodromes used before World War I, to the use of open fields and gravel roads in the barnstorming days when air travel became commonplace for the masses.so covered is the transition to the jet age, and the subsequent demand for longer paved runways and modern terminals. The final chapters culminate with a look at the modern airport, with all its technology and vast acreage.
