Author House, Aug 22, 2012 - Transportation - 262 pages
Vince Flury spent 50 years in the field of Aviation. He started out as an Aircraft and Engine Mechanic in the U. S. Air Force. He attended the University of Miami School of Engineering under the G. I. Bill. After graduation, was hired by Pan American World Airways as an Aeronautical Engineer. He retired from Pan Am after 30 years and opened his own Aeronautical Consulting Service which he operated for 14 years. During those periods, he traveled the world, living and working on all continents except Antarctica. At his 80th Birthday party, Vince was pushed by his children to finally put into writing the stories that they had been hearing about, and sometimes living through, all of their lives. This book is a collection of those stories which take you around the world to strange places, exotic culture, and stirring experiences.

Absolute waste of time!!!
Its all about Mr Flurry and him being so good at what he was doing with Air force and blah blah rather than his experience of travelling.
Book has not been edited
professionally and seems some family run business has published the book as a favour.
And the concept of living on all the continents is not equivalent of Around the World.....
