Description
DANGEROUS LESSONS AND GUARDIAN ANGELS is an action packed true adventure book that spans thirty-five years of airline flying. Stories about transporting guns to Biafra, flying cargo up and down the Berlin corridor during the cold war, and flying sensitive missions, deep into Russia.Fasten your seatbelt and get ready for exciting,sometimes funny,and ocassionally death defying true aviation stories. Many of the stories in this book will put you on the edge-of-your seat; for example when the (author) airline captain is forced to make a death defying landing of a four engine jetliner..... IN TOTAL FOG. During that landing, the runway never seen until the airplane is brought to a complete stop. This exciting book also chronicles treasure diving with frightening visits by man-eating sharks, exploring the anchorages off dreamy Caribbean beaches, and fly-fishing for huge trophy trout high in the Andes of Argentina. These true adventures are told in a series of fascinating short stories. Besides featuring dramatic and sometimes humerous tales of adventure, this information packed book also has a chapter on how to become an airline pilot and land that airline job. Finally, there is an inspirational message to be persistent, focused and never give up, even when faced with overwhelming odds. The author's credentials include 21,000 hours of airline flying in four engine and wide bodied jets across the U.S., South America, North Atlantic, Europe, Asia, China and Russia. Remember..... when you've had many DANGEROUS LESSONS, be sure you have at least one GUARDIAN ANGEL.
