Description: Ernest K. Gann’s classic memoir is an up-close and thrilling account of the treacherous early days of commercial aviation. In his inimitable style, Gann brings you right into the cockpit, recounting both the triumphs and terrors of pilots who flew when flying was anything but routine.
Fate and destiny are bottom line answers to every precarious situation in Gann’s near-autobiography and philosophically speaking, that really ain’t my bag. Apart from that, it is a white-knuckle ride through the early days of commercial airlines.
The ‘why me’ and ‘lucked-out’s became palling.
