Every generation seems to have a fascination with the latest and most advanced technology. This was even true in the years of the Great Depression, when many children, and adults, were captivated by the possibility of air travel. While this travel was still fairly restricted to those few who could afford it, everyone knew that it was actually happening. Kellogg's produced a premium, possibly a send-away bonus, in the form of an activity book on the subject of airplanes and air travel. Besides punch-out models of many different types of aircraft, the book featured "authentic flying information, a history of aviation, principles of flying," and even a board game.
