Moye Stephens could be truely considered one of the unsung greats of aviation. In the 1920s, he flew with Hughes, Hancock, Boeing, Pancho Barnes, and some of the best stunt pilots around. His experience let him to a career as Captain for Maddux, TAT, and T & WA in Ford trimotors. In 1930, he began an around-the-world flight as author Richard Halliburton's pilot. His airplane was a Stearman C-3B named the Flying Carpet. The flight took the two 18 months to complete. In 1939, Moye was one of several who assisted in forming Northrop Corporation for which Moye acted as Chief Test Pilot on several prototypes including the N-1M. Flying Carpets, Flying Wings is the first factual narrative on the round-the-world flight. Information was taken from Moye's letters home, the original maps used by Moye, and several interviews. The book includes many photos - so many that the Appendix has extra!
