In “Lost in Oscar Hotel,” J-3 pilot and author Gordon Murray chronicles “the first, longest, slowest and most peculiar flight to Wright Brothers Airport ever made in an antique airplane.”
The flight was a real world record—albeit a strange one. Yet, it was won alongside an accounting of odd discoveries; beautifully captured images by master photographer, Gary Harwood; and the spinning of flying tales.
“Lost in Oscar Hotel” reveals a hidden universe of people involved in that other kind of flying and another kind of life, and distills the stories and pictures to document an existence in a world that stands apart from what the public commonly
knows. It is a story of love, and the nearly forgotten secret that airplanes were the original Internet—invented to bring people in this world together.
