Wings over Samoa describes the advent of commercial aviation in Samoa - opening up the tourism industry to this distant island paradise. Captain Reginald Barnewall succeeded to the ancient Irish baronetcy Barnewall of Crickstown Castle in 1961 while serving as chief pilot and operations manager of Polynesian Airlines which he co-founded a few years previously with Eugene Paul and in close association with Brian Leamy - in this book they describe much of Samoa before, during and immediately after independence in January 1961"--Back cover.
