Way to go (expletive)”
The author was fascinated by airplanes from a very young age, which isn’t surprising since his father was in the Air Force so, as a child, the author was introduced to airplanes up close and personal.
His first time in the air was when the family flew from Buffalo to McChord air Force Base in Tacoma Washington.
I cracked up when reading what he said about flushing things down the airplane lavatory thinking that they would just go out into space.
The book alternated chapters between memories of his past with his family which were quite amusing and entertaining and his journey toward getting his wings that started with that experience of jumping out of the airplane. He couldn't afford flying lessons so jumping lessons were all he could do.
His evolution from rambunctious little boy, to daring school boy and troublemaker at VMI, to getting his wings was a fun and interesting story, with large doses of humor.
Reading this book, one learns what goes into the making of an airline pilot, as well as what is in the heart and soul of an airline pilot. I highly recommend it on both counts.
Lone Star Literary provided me with a copy of this book.
