Washington Dulles International Airport is one of the three major airports that transports passengers into and out of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. The beauty of the site is admired not only by millions who arrive and leave the area, but by local residents as well. After an extensive study of three seperate locations in Virginis, Pres. Dwight Eisenhower agreed to the Chantilly site and later chose to rename the World\'s first jet airport after his former secretary of state, John Foster Dulles. Renowned architect Eero Saarinen designed the magnificent building that serves as a gateway in and out of the United States. Today, the once peaceful farming area and small villages have turned into a fast-paced business world filled with thousands of new homes and residents.

The Images of Aviation Series is a series of individual books that takes the reader through a comprehensive photographic journey of American aeronautical history beginning in the early 1900s. By the late 1920s worldwide civil aviation was moving from being a public curiosity to a practical means of transport and recreation. World War I was the catalyst for technological advancement. The Golden Age of Aviation saw continued progress leading to aircraft for World War II. The books take the reader through postwar aircraft progression on into the Jet Age.
