ggf. zzgl. Versand

Welcome back to Bright's Pond. Now that her morbidly obese sister, Agnes Sparrow, is comfortably dieting at the Greenbrier nursing home, Griselda has time to fly - literally. A pilot makes an emergency landing on Hector's Hill and creates quite a ruckus in the otherwise sleepy town of Bright's Pond. Griselda becomes enamored with Cliff Cardwell and his airplane, a 1952 Cessna Beachpiper, and takes him up on his offer of flying lessons. This after Zeb Sewickey has proposed marriage. Griselda has not given him her answer. Meanwhile, Stella Hughes Kincaid receives word that her estranged brother, Walter, is in a coma at Greenbrier. Griselda and Agnes convince Stella to see him. On her first visit she meets Gilda Saucer, who claims to be Walter's fiancée. Stella smells a rat and upon further investigation discovers that Walter had recently become a millionaire thanks to the PA state lottery. Stella, Griselda, and pretty much everyone in town jump to the conclusion that Gilda is a gold digger. Stella and Griselda confront the woman, who vehemently denies the accusation and pledges her sincere love for Walter. She is still suspicious, but Stella backs off. When Bright's Pond chief of police Mildred Blessing digs up the news that Stella is married to a two-bit con man, Cliff Cardwell (the pilot) from Binghamton, NY, Gilda and the cute but lying flight instructor are chased from Greenbrier by several cane-wielding Greenbrier residents and Agnes. They are arrested on bunko charges. Miracles still happen occasionally in Bright's Pond; Walter awakens from his coma. He and Stella are reunited, Griselda gives Zeb her answer - no - and is last seen flying loop-de-loops over Hector's Hill. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Udall.

The engine is the heart of an airplane, but the pilot is its soul. (Sir Walter Alexander Raleigh, author of The War in the Air) We all marvel at the miracle of flight, but without the human pilot, all those pretty metal curves are nothing but inanimate objects lying dead and dormant on the tarmac. In his latest volume of true tales from the sky, Eric "Cap'n Aux" Auxier celebrates these intrepid pilots and their stories. Once again, Cap'n Aux puts you in the driver's seat at 30,000 feet! More stories, more guest authors, more love, laughs, and tears, in an adventure spanning over three decades in the sky! In the final volume of this series, Cap'n Aux features over 10 aviation personalities, who spin their own adrenaline-pumping yarns. Only difference is, these tall tales are true! Eric Auxier is a captain for a major US airline, with over 22,000 hours of flying. He is the author of the Amazon Top 100 Breakthrough novel The Last Bush Pilots, as well as the Code Name: Dodger Young Adult "Spy/Fly" series.

The jet age began in 1939 with the brief hop of a secret German airplane. Seventy years later, the entire world depends upon the jet engine in every sphere - political, military, economic, and social. In Hypersonic Thunder, Walter Boyne weaves an intricate story of how the jet engine changed aeronautics and astronautics, pushing the frontiers of flight forward and permitting humankind to enter the space age. Drawing on his knowledge of the period, Boyne paints a gripping picture of jet aviation from the brilliant supersonic Concorde to the coming challenges of hypersonic flight. Using the fictional Shannons as a vehicle, the author ranges the world of aviation, combining the triumphs and tragedies of great aviation companies with the familiar conflicts of family life. All of the great names of aeronautics and astronautics appear here as they did on the historic scene, including such luminaries as Howard Hughes, Kelly Johnson, Burt Rutan, and Steve Fossett. The book thunders with the clash of combat, ranging from the courageous fights of the Israeli Air Force down through the raid on Libya, Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom, and, most important the ongoing war on terror. And space is not neglected, as Boyne covers everything from Skylab and the Space Shuttle, with its great achievements and terrible tragedies, to the International Space Station.
