  • An amazingly gifted aircraft designer and manufacturer of the lesser known Wright Bellanca WB-2 - the better airplane that should have been the "Spirit of St. Louis."

    By a twist of fate, the best plane of the era did not become the famous "Spirit of St. Louis." 28 year old millionaire Charles Levine of New York City ruined those chances.

    This was the better plane that Charles Lindbergh wanted to buy but couldn't have. Brilliant aircraft designer GM Bellanca's 5-6 passenger airplane would have required little or no modification excepting larger gasoline fuel tanks to wing the New York to Paris $25,000 prize offered by hotel magnate Raymond Ortig. Proof was established just months later when pilot Clarence Chamberlin and the erasable landed in Germany with the WB=2.

    Bellanca continued to manufacture some of the best planes in the 1930's and 1940's, while Ryan Airlines, the manufacturer of the "Spirit of St. Louis" lasted only a few years after Lindbergh's historic flight.

    This is the history of the original Bellanca Aircraft Company origins and history before GM Bellanca's retirement and death. Like most all business established by an entrepreneurial genius like GM Bellanca, the business seldom survives intact to the next generation.

    This book is definitely worth reading and having in my collection. Volumes have been written of Lindbergh and his airplane. Only photographs remain of one of the most important airplanes in history.

  • This book is an excellent review of the Bellanca airplane history. I would like to see more books about the topic and more about Bellanca's personal life in another book. Great book!

  • Assuming you're a history afficionado of the Bellanca history and how Guiseppe Bellanca made his name in aviation, you will find this book to your liking. If you own a more recent Bellanca product (Viking, Decathalon, Citabria), you will find most of the book emphasizes Bellanca's early years and his formative designs for the company. It covers fairly little in the 1960+ timeframe (which is what most of us associate Bellancas with). I enjoyed seeing how my current airplane (a 77 Super Viking) evolved from the Crusairs, Cruisemasters and 260 designs. This book is probably only for those with a passion for the past but also for those who are curious about where their current birds came from.
