50 Tales of Flight
From Biplanes to BoeingseBook - 2013
"In "50 Tales of Flight", the reader is not simply taken aloft in everything from biplanes to Boeings as the title may suggest. True, the flight deck door has been cracked ajar and the canvas cover pulled back from the open cockpit, but this book is built from the ground up. From the alarm clock buzzing to begin the airline pilot's day to the sound of silence when a light aircraft engine fails and all that lies beneath are trees and cliffs.There are moments of tension and others of humorous relief to be found amongst this collection of stories from the author's thirty years aloft. Interspersed are tales of other aviators too. Veterans of wars now passed and some who lost their lives pursuing their passion.There are images of the sights and people contained within the words. In some ways this book tracks an aviation life, but in others it offers insights and inspiration; just as the sky itself does. For anyone interested in aviation, or just intrigued by this seemingly removed field of endeavour, there is much to be seen through these "50 Tales of Flight"."-- Provided by publisher.
