"This book covers the complex history of a great airline, together with those of the main companies that became part of the Delta family: Chicago & Southern, Northeast Airlines, and Western Air Lines. Their combined heritage is respected and preserved in Delta's archives and in its own museum at Atlanta. Delta: An Airline and its Aircraft is intended to complement these institutions in preserving the memories of an airline that has rarely benefitted from a gratuitous handout from any government agency, and whose path to success has been derived from the efforts of its own people, and from the judgement and initiative of its own leaders, all of whom rose from within its ranks." - Dust jacket
