Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "From fifteen-thousand-foot falls with unopened parachutes to forced night landingsin unlit fields and bail outs from burning planes, the lives of pilots are often exciting and occasionally harrowing, as this collection of stories d ramatically illustrates. The book's theme is survival in the skies and the key to survival, according to the author, is Lady Luck. Don Tooker fully appreciates just how dangerous a profession flying is and admits that it is filled with unpredictable factors that affect all pilots, regardless of their skills. A pilot since 1947, he survived nearly 150 combat missions over Korea and countless other adventures. [...] The time covered is expansive, from combat in WW2 and Korea through the 1990s." - from the dj. Very good tofine in dustjacket. 18.00
