Oct. 2 Museum of Flight Lecture and Book Signing Looks at French Airline, Aéropostale

SEATTLE – On Oct. 2 at The Museum of Flight, author Joy Dunkerley will present a lecture and book signing about the pioneering French airline, Aérospostale. Aéropostale was the world’s first intercontinental carrier and a company that catapulted France into the role of the world’s aviation leader. Dunkerley’s history of the airline, “Sometimes Eagle’s Wings: The Saga of Aérospostale,” looks at the company’s origins and the extraordinary personalities–from its visionary owners to its modest mechanics–that made it a force in the industry. Dunkerley shows the role of technology in its development, and how the airline dealt with governments struggling to develop a legal framework for a new form of transportation. The program is at 2 p.m. in the William M. Allen Theater, and is free with admission to the Museum.
