Early Aviation Aces, Con-men, and Engineers: Tex Talks History

#aviation #history #blackpantslegion

A story of an egotistical medical doctor who tried to cash in on post-WWI demand for new planes by mesmerizing an entire established airplane company into building an over-hyped, tragically flawed design based on the principles of “true bird flight” that killed two test pilots. This is but one part of the story of a Dr. William Whitney Christmas, who, through his mesmerizing Christmas Effect™ has managed to actually change his portrayal through history. Discover how by watching our humble documentary. Enjoy!
