McCook Field was a small air base in Dayton, Ohio, that was active from 1917 to 1927. McCook was exceptional because it was designated by the US Signal Corps/Army Air Corps as an aeronautical research facility. As the centre of prototype testing of new aircraft, McCook was a magnet for the leading aviators and engineers of the time. This work contains unpublished interviews with 20 of those aviation pioneers. Interviewees include WWII hero Jimmy Doolittle, test pilot Harold R. Harris (the first man to fly in a pressurized cockpit, first to bail out with a free fall parachute). WWII Tenth Air Force commander Howard Davidson; Major General Franklin O.
