Hello-

I'm writing to share with the forum a book that I published last summer about the history of the seaplane base at the Weirs on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire, USA. The first flight there was by Harry Atwood in a Burgess-Wright aircraft on pontoons in July 1912, and activity continued until shortly after WWII, when the base moved to Paugus Bay. Pioneer aviator Bob Fogg flew a Curtiss MF flying boat, known as a "Seagull," from 1923-27, also Waco biplanes and a Travel Air 6000 on floats, as well as a Sikorsky S-38 in 1937-38. So, something for both flying boat and floatplane enthusiasts. The book is 220 pages and includes nearly 300 historic images, and is available on Amazon US for $19.95, plus shipping. Or contact Enfield Publishing and Distribution, PO Box 699, Enfield, NH 03748, USA. Title is "Bob Fogg and the Golden Age of New Hampshire Aviation: Flying Over Winnipesaukee and Beyond," and if you google the title you can find some reviews with additional details. Thanks for your attention, hope some readers will enjoy!
