For every one of us life is a journey filled with beauty and pitfalls. It was my good fortune to make the journey through avery climactic period in history in a job I loved,blessed with family and friends. Flying revealed the powerful forces of nature and was a great teacher. When the hail rattles off the fuselage, lightning flashes all around, updraftsand downdrafts send you soaring 3 000 feet a minute- focus,keep it an even keel and on course because this to shall pass.So it is in life.Flying as in life, history is important. Thesame basic procedures for flying through turbulence have not changed over the years.Anticipate, slow down to turbulence speed before penetrating so you enter with astable attitude and power setting. We learn from predecessors’ mistakes.The reason for writing this book was to share this rather remarkable journey and givea small personal peek into the turbulent 20th Century.
