“They Had What It Takes – Part 9: Ernst Lehmann” by Alden McWilliams
Alden McWilliams’ illustrated tribute to the pioneer fliers of the early days of aviation was called “They Had What it Takes”, and this week we bring you the 9th installment, which appeared in the October 1937 Flying Aces. It features the German zeppelin ace Captain Ernst Lehmann, whose last command was the ill-fated Hindenburg.
Next week, in Part 10, we will feature Major Al Williams who was considered the greatest aerobatic flier of his time.
