"Honest Vision: The Donald Douglas Story" tells the life story of a man who foresaw and developed a critical part of our daily modern lives‚ the commercial airliner—yet remained relatively unknown to the general public. The author, Julie Boatman Filucci ("Together We Fly: Voices from the DC-3") crafted this marvelous biography of Donald Wills Douglas mostly from the memories of the people who knew him, saw his vision, and navigated his quirks of personality and temperament, as well as from works of company history and details from the epic tale of the Douglas Aircraft Company itself.
