Reading Room CAPTAIN FLIGHT "Story Behind the Cover"

Just as fellow World War II aviator Captain Aero became a space hero...
...Captain Flight followed suit in the final issue of his book.
However, his trip into space was not in comic form, but as a text story!
And it's one helluva sendoff...
Does the rest of Mankind settle on Eden?
Do the Edenites/Atlantians return to Earth?
What happens next?
We'll never know, since this story in Four Star's Captain Flight Comics #11 (1947) is Flight's final apperance!
Both cover and story illustrations are by L B Cole. but the writer is, regrettably, unkown.
