THE LEGENDARY DOUGLAS DC-3 flies on in the hearts of aviators around the globe, but few today know much about the man with the vision that brought her to the skies. From the author of Together We Fly: Voices From The DC-3 comes an exploration into the life of Donald Wills Douglas, founder of the Douglas Aircraft Company, a genius innovator and engineer.

What inspired Douglas to envision a commercial airliner when aviation was in its infancy? What motivated him, and what key elements to his leadership style led Douglas Aircraft Company to success? What secret came to light that likely contributed to the downward spiral of that same business?

Honest Vision: The Donald Douglas Story brings into sharp focus a facet of a momentous time in world history, illuminated by one man's drive to make the skies available to all.
