Apollo 4, the first Saturn V flight, blasts off from Kennedy Space Center on November 9, 1967.APOLLO’S STALLIONSThe moon landings’ success hinged on the first 165 seconds after liftoff, when the 3,000-ton Saturn V rocket was propelled from earth by five massive engines, each of which produced more than 1.5 million pounds of thrust. Half a century later, the amazing Rocketdyne F-1 remains the most powerful engine ever flown.THE TRUTH ABOUT TIDAL WAVEOn August 1, 1943, 178 Consolidated B-24D Liberators set out to destroy the vital Axis oil refineries at Ploesti, Romania. A re-examination of the evidence points squarely to faulty planning by mission directors as a root cause of the disastrous losses sustained by the American airmen.SITTING DUCKS OVER NORMANDYInterviewed by his son, Douglas C-47 pilot Russell Chandler Jr.…

HELICOPTER PIONEERS(©MARY EVANS PICTURE LIBRARY)Your May issue was, as usual, quite interesting. But of particular interest was the article “Forgotten Whirlybird,” about Maitland Bleecker’s helicopter. My father, Igor I. Sikorsky, while clearly one of aviation’s pioneering geniuses, was quite humble. Late in his life (he died on October 26, 1972) he would be introduced as “the man who invented the helicopter.” He would demur, not out of false modesty, but true humility. I heard him repeatedly deny being an “inventor,” claiming only “to have designed the first successful helicopter in North America.”Father was an avid reader of Popular Science, and undoubtedly was familiar with the September 1930 article mentioned. As is well documented, he dreamed of helicopters from his childhood, building two efforts in 1909 and 1910. In his words:…

HIGH-LEVEL CONFABHaynes chats with President Roosevelt, Maj. Gen. Henry H. Arnold and Secretary of War Harry Woodring in 1938.A few years ago, I wrote a book called Still Time to Live, a biography of Jack Belden, a Time-Life war correspondent who was retired and living in Paris when I was working as a foreign correspondent in the 1970s and ’80s. One of the finest war reporters of his generation, Belden said that much of his life had been spent in “lonely wanderings among the dreary wastelands of war,” which included China and Burma, where he traveled with his friend and fellow rebel, U.S. Army General Joseph W. Stilwell. He was the only reporter to accompany Stilwell on his “walkout” from Burma in May 1942. His 1943 account of the experience—Retreat…
