Citizens of Springfield first witnessed human flight, a balloon ascent, on July 5, 1858. In 1861, the capital city\'s most famous resident, Abraham Lincoln, then residing in the White House, authorized the creation of the first U.S. \"air force,\" a balloon to observe Condereate troops. Springfield\'s interface with aviation has been a steady stream of hot-and-cold- running enthusiasm since airplanes began flying from the state fair raetrack infield about 1910. Springfield Aviation chronicles that flow and concludes with photographs from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in early 2008. It presents photographs of memorable airplanes, airships, and prominent aviators from the author\'s extensive collection, augmented by contributors from Springfield Airport Authority, Lincoln Library\'s Sangamon Valley Collection, and many others.
