“’'The Congress of Ghosts’ (what a title!) is outstanding and must reading for anyone interested in the history of air travel. You have a great history lesson in this book and should be very proud.”
“The George Faw [chapter] is a most evocative preservation of grass-roots flying in that early time, thanks and congratulations.”
"C of G is most interesting and I couldn’t put it down until I’d read quite a lot of it."
"Thanks for doing such a splendid job with George's [Faw] bio and all the biographies of our earlier aviators. I shall read your book with a better understanding and appreciation of earlier aviators."

Likewise, 2010 marks the tenth anniversary of your Webmaster's labors on behalf of the Register that is the focus of this Web site. I acquired a copy of the Register in a used book store in Alexandria, Virginia on June 13, 2000. The book changed my life by catalyzing a project that is at once persistent in its attractiveness and productive in its yields. The project has occupied much of my time for the last decade, and the research, data-analysis, and writing have taken me into many dusty archives, museums, old barns, libraries, private homes, workshops and airfields. The project has yielded four books, several journal articles, many invited presentations, and this Web site. Best of all, along the way I've met a lot of great people. I'm looking forward to the next decade with great anticipation.
09/18/09 Propellers of another type: The host service for this Web site is "green". The company, in the Boston, MA area, operates over 800 servers and offsets all electricity use for computing and office infrastructure with wind-generated Renewable Energy Certificates. This prevents the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year. You may browse and study my site with clear environmental conscience.

kind of information you don't find in the history books.
My personal thanks to all of them (you know who you are).
An article was published in the 50th Anniversary volume
of the Journal of the American Aviation
Historical Society last spring describing the operations of Standard Air Lines
through Tucson during the late 1920s. You may download
that article here.

Aircraft of the Davis-Monthan Airfield 1925-1936.” This book examines 850 landings by

July, 2009 As of January 31, 2010, I find that about 30% of my effort to maintain dmairfield.org is now spent adding visitor-contributed items to pages that already exist. This is not surprising, because as I add more new biographies of people and technographies of aircraft to the site, the more "hits" are delivered by search engines to potential site visitors ("Build it and they will come.")
I very much appreciate all the communication and sharing of information and photographs by visitors, and I honor their contributions by including them as quickly and efficiently as possible. Thus, the time happily spent updating. My point is this: From now on, I will maintain a record of those additions in this section of changes that are older than six months before present. That way, you'll be able to keep track of additions and changes to existing pages, as well as additions of brand new biographies and technographies.
