Born to Fly
This is the story of the exciting life oa a young man involved in three wars. His ambition to join the military and fly airplanes was met by attending West Point and flying school. Having to abandon his P-47 fighter over enemy territory, he tells of his harrowing adventures while evading the Germans. He flew over 5,900 hours in thirty types of aircraft, and he never flew an airplane he did not like. He rescued a US Navy aircrew shot down by Russian MIGs in the Sea of Japan, and devoted much time flying and supervising air refueling operations in the US, Europe, and Southeast Asia. He expresses great love for flying and writes with enthusiasm.
