Fearful of ridicule, she keeps her dream of becoming a test pilot a secret. A cocky airplane salesman arrives in Saplingville and sets up shop at the airport. He steals her heart, but will never take possession of her dreams.Paul Williams is more comfortable designing airplanes than flying them. To please his father, he takes a job as an airplane salesman. His boss sends him to the deep South, where he meets a ravishing daredevil of a woman. His heart takes a nosedive at the first sight of her. How can he give up his controlling ways and let her soar? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dawson McBride. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/186340/bk_acx0_186340_sample.mp3.

Created by Irving Brecher, The Life of Riley starred William Bendix as Brooklyn-born Chester A. Riley, a family man who worked as an airplane riveter at the fictional Cunningham Aircraft plant in California. The stories were usually set at home, with Riley cheerfully disrupting life with his malapropisms and ill-timed intervention into minor problems. His stock answer to every turn of fate “what a revoltin' development this is!” became a popular catchphrase. Paula Winslowe was Riley's wife, Peg; John Brown doubled as undertaker "Digger" O'Dell and as Riley's co-worker, Jim Gillis; Tommy Cook, Bobby Ellis and Scotty Beckett each played the role of Riley’s son, Junior; and Sharon Douglas played Riley’s daughter, Babs. Alan Reed (the voice of Fred Flintstone) played multiple characters, including Riley's boss, Mr. Stevenson and Peg's father. Whereas Gillis gave Riley bad advice that got him into trouble, Digger gave him good advice that "helped him out of a hole." The Life of Riley aired on radio from 1944 until 1951 making a successful transition to television in 1949. Due to a contract dispute, Bendix couldn’t initially play Riley on television so the role went to Jackie Gleason. In 1953, William Bendix was free to star as Riley on the small screen and continued with it until 1958. 10/5/46 “Good Neighbor Week” 12/28/46 “New Year’s Eve” 3/29/47 “The New Chair” 4/5/47 “Accused of Being a Child Beater” 4/12/47 “Is Peg Cheating?” 4/19/47 “Riley Thinks Junior Is a Coward” 5/3/47 “Launching Babs into Society” 5/10/47 “Mother’s Day Show” 6/7/47 “Courting Peg at Camp” 6/14/47 “Soap Box Derby” 6/28/47 “Vacation Without the Wives” 7/5/47 “Riley Thinks Peg Is Leaving Him” 1.

Master Sergeant Dick Lunders slouched behind the flight engineer's panel, monitoring the airplane's condition, occasionally writing down one of the systems' readings on his flight log. It looked like minimum crew rest at Mactan, then to Bangkok -- by way of Saigon and the combat zone. Suddenly without warning the number two propeller RPM surged, then settled back to a steady drone. 'Aw, come on,' Sergeant Lunders growled at the offending propeller. 'You a'tryin' to make me work?' The Aircraft Commander, Major James Brown, sat up straight in his seat and looked back at his flight engineer. 'Problems?' he asked 'Not sure, yet. Number two surged a little's all,' Sergeant Lunders replied as he, too, came to full alert, carefully staring at each of the 67 instruments on the massive flight engineer's panel. He paid special attention to the 13 indicators telling of the health of number two engine. To assure himself that everything was as it should be, the gray-haired sergeant moved the propeller levers into manual control. Everything was holding normally, and he had full control, so he once again selected the automatic RPM control feature. Everything was right with the world - just as the Douglas Company had intended when they built this C-124 Globemaster II back in 1952. But sometimes there did occur abnormalities that were of a more serious nature than a 'little surge'. Sometimes a flight that had begun normally turned into what flight crews referred to as a 'simulator session'! It was during these events that the adrenaline began to flow and everyone came into a state of total attention to what was happening at the flight engineer's station. Would he e able to take care of the problem, or would there be another statistic to add to the marker designating a lost airplane -- and more importantly -- a lost crew?
On July 6, 1996, at 1424 central daylight time, a McDonnell Douglas MD-88, N927DA, operated by Delta Air Lines Inc., as flight 1288, experienced an engine failure during the initial part of its takeoff roll on runway 17 at Pensacola Regional Airport in Pensacola, Florida. Uncontained engine debris penetrated the left aft fuselage. Two passengers were killed and two others were seriously injured. The takeoff was rejected, and the airplane was stopped on the runway. The airplane with 137 passengers and 5 crew on board was destined for Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia.
This book tells the story of a Dutch boy who grew up during the 1950s in post-war Borneo, where he had frequent encounters with an airplane, the Douglas DC-3, aka the C-47 Skytrain or Dakota of World War II fame.
