Whether you fear, thrill at, or, like many, have never bothered to stop and think about the wonder of commercial flight, The Flying Book will inform, surprise, reassure, and entertain. David Blatner takes readers from the cockpit to the runway, the control tower, the baggage and security systems, the airplane manufacturing plant, and beyond, explaining the many factors that make airline travel possible. There are stops along the way to examine airplane maintenance, pilot training, the effects of weather, safety statistics, tips for staying healthy, oddball aviation inventions such as the air car, and what aerodynamicists have learned from birds and bugs. With a brief history of aviation just to put it all in perspective, as well as minibiographies of some of history´s great aviators, The Flying Book is a treasure trove of fascinating aviation facts. A delight for travelers-business, pleasure, or armchair-or any readers who like to indulge their sense of curiosity, The Flying Book captures the spirit, illuminates the science, and reveals the magic of flight.
This was the first book to cover all of Cold War air combat in the words of the men who waged it. In I Always Wanted to Fly, retired United States Air Force Colonel Wolfgang W. E. Samuel has gathered first-person memories from heroes of the cockpits and airstrips. Battling in dogfights when jets were novelties, saving lives in grueling airlifts, or flying covert and dangerous reconnaissance missions deep into Soviet and Chinese airspace, these flyers waged America´s longest and most secretively conducted air war. Many of the pilots Samuel interviewed invoke the same sentiment when asked why they risked their lives in the air - ´´I always wanted to fly.´´ While young, they were inspired by barnstormers, by World War I fighter legends, by the legendary Charles Lindbergh, and often just by seeing airplanes flying overhead. With the advent of World War II, many of these dreamers found themselves in cockpits soon after high school. Of those who survived World War II, many chose to continue following their dream, flying the Berlin Airlift, stopping the North Korean army during the ´´forgotten war´´ in Korea, and fighting in the Vietnam War. Told in personal narratives and reminiscences, I Always Wanted to Fly renders views from pilots´ seats and flight decks during every air combat flashpoint from 1945 to 1968. Drawn from long exposure to the immense stress of warfare, the stories these warriors share are both heroic and historic. The author, a veteran of many secret reconnaissance missions, evokes individuals and scenes with authority and grace. He provides clear, concise historical context for each airman´s memories. In I Always Wanted to Fly, he has produced both a thrilling and inspirational acknowledgment of personal heroism and a valuable addition to our documentation of the Cold War. The book is published by University Press of Mississippi. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Seitz. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/009724/bk_acx0_009724_sample.mp3.

A terrible blizzard, a grisly accident, a mid-air collision - and that´s only the beginning... Crippled by a high-altitude collision with another airplane, Wayfarer 880 , half the roof ripped away, flies on in the evening sky. Seated in the back, amid dead and dying passengers, pilot Donovan Nash fights decompression and oxygen deprivation to make it to the shattered cockpit. With help from a woman from his carefully concealed past, and a handful of survivors, Donovan must try to fly the heavily damaged plane with no electrical power or functioning instruments... On the ground, Dr. Lauren McKenna waits for Donovan, her fiancée, to arrive in Chicago, only to hear firsthand of the midair collision. Faced with a hostile airline executive who secretly wants the stricken airliner to vanish into the icy waters of Lake Michigan, Lauren must convince Henry Parrish, an unlikely ally, to help save the man she loves. Lauren and Henry find themselves involved in a deadly game of deception to try and stay one step ahead of the Airline as well as heightened security forces. As Flight 880 burns the last of its fuel, and not knowing who they can trust, Henry and Lauren rush to execute a daring midair solution to save Donovan and the others circling helplessly above. 1.
