From the Author

Interviewing Charlie Vaughn off and on over three years for this book was a unique experience. Charlie is a master pilot who has done it all. He is also a natural story teller with a lively sense of humor. The combination produced vivid descriptions of aviation as it has evolved over the last 50 years. I hope you enjoy spending time with Charlie through this book as much as I did while writing it.

Format: Hardcover
I have to admit that I am slightly biased writing this review. The author Garth was a flying instructor of mine in the 1970's and Charlie was a fairly well respected pilot at the St. Catharines airport. Being young and impressionable myself at the time, these two were pilots I looked towards for answers I had about the mysterious world of aviation that I wanted to pursue a career in.
So I wanted to read this work for memories of those days long past and to put to bed questions I had during those days as the airport line-boy qualified only to stand on the sidelines and listen while stories unfolded. Not content with pushing the club's airplanes in and out of the hangar or refueling them for the next student, I too went on to span the globe eventually in commercial Hercules operations. In short,I can identify with the participants and the subject.
Garth has taken the liberty of writing the text as if we are all sitting at the club's coffee shop and talking candidly about a very interesting flying career. The paragraphs bounce back and forth between the principal story tellers with Garth enlightening us on the background of the scene being described. At times this can be confusing as to who is telling what but for my own part not hard to follow as I can still hear their voices over the cacophony.
I also particularly liked the chronological order of the events portrayed as this prevented the text from bounding all over the time span and the globe making the reading easier to follow.
There is always a great temptation with works like this to tell too much.

HASH(0xb3097870) out of 5 stars Impossible not to like it. Dec 9 2014
By Mark Twain - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have read this book many times, usually around Christmas time. It is a book I can not put down once I start reading it.
Especially if you are a pilot and remember the time when this story happened there is none better (not that I know of).
