From a long-time National Air and Space Museum docent and collectSPACE member:

Strange Facts of Flight
by Bob Kovalchik

The work indicates a variety of two hundred stories, rare and unusual, from books and conversations with astronauts, aircrews, and aviation officials and sources.

This is beyond the scope of artifacts generally found in museums. Marquees alert visitors of aircraft and spacecraft, but voluminous facts are often hidden from the public and virtually unknown and avoid the human factor. For example, when the Wright brothers took to the skies, few knew their mother had taught them basic skills, like wielding a hammer.

Stories within illuminate the evolution of history and technology.
