Astonishing Stories Pilots Tell Pilots softcover
Airplane pilots are notorious story tellers. As this collection of tales (mostly true) are revealed in this book, the reader, whether a pilot or not, can experience a sense of what it is like to be at the controls of everything from a puddle jumper to a Mach 3 jet.
Most airplane pilots would rather fly than eat, but next to flying, pilots love a good bull session of stories with fellow pilots. In this book, you, whether a rated pilot or not, can enjoy a variety of yarns and tales (mostly true) that have been told by pilots for the enjoyment of other pilots.
With this book, anyone (regardless of his or her involvement in aviation) can experience a sense of what it is like being at the controls of everything from a Cessna to an SR-71. There are even some humorous quips from airline cabin attendants. The stories are laced with unabashed pilot jargon, and in the worst cases, definitions of those terms are included for the uninitiated. Most of these stories are in the teller's own words, and they carry the excitement, fear, or thrill of the flying situation.
