Barnaby Jones, the hero of this tale, had an exceptional imagination, and he had no doubt that, with the proper design, he could build a craft that would lift him into the sky. Not for a moment did he doubt that a series of electric cords would provide the proper thrust for his vehicle or that a common fan could pull it high into the air, over tall buildings and across vast oceans.

Surely such faith and determination will assure that his name will be forever linked with those other pioneers of flight history — Orville and Wilbur, Charles Lindberg and Neil Armstrong.
