“During the first three crucial years of the airmail, from 1918 to 1921, a total of 26 pilots, mechanics and field personnel were killed. Airmail averaged one fatality a month, and an airmail pilot could expect to fly less than two years before dying on the job. It was clearly the most dangerous job in the world.”
