Flying Into History PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Flying Into History free pdf Flying Into History is about the heroes of Air Force Flying Class 55N. They all flew for the Air Force in defense of our country during a time of three wars, the ending of the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Cold War. Yes, the Cold War was dangerous and some aircraft were shot down. Three of them lost their lives in combat in Vietnam. None of them even flinched at being sent into harms way for military needs whether it be combat or other military needs like flying into the center of a hurricane or typhoon to track it for public safety information, or taking nuclear samples near French and Soviet nuclear tests. All of their stories are interesting. They include such stories as flying B-47 reconnaissance aircraft into Russia's back yard- flying as forward air controllers in Vietnam putting close air support fighters, gunships, and even bombers on the enemy to save friendly ground forces under attack- surviving mid-air collisions- developing the F-101B Interceptor and the RF-4C reconnaissance aircraft- flying Kissinger to secret meetings with the North Vietnamese- supporting Presidential flights in the EC-121 and Coast Guard HC-130s- shooting down MiGs over North Vietnam- escaping MiGs in B-52 and KC-135 aircraft- crashing in a B-26 after taking out an enemy machine gun- facing 6,000 North Vietnamese soldiers with a can-do attitude that saved U.S. Army lives on the ground- and many miraculous saves from aircraft emergencies. This is just volume 1 of the book Flying into History. It tells the stories of 14 of our Air Force Flying Class 55N of which there are 337 members. We will keep writing volumes until we run out of pilots and families to tell their stories. We already have enough input to fill three volumes and we expect almost all the class members will be in contact to get into this class book before we are finished. So if you like this book, watch for the next volume. They will be coming out fairly fast. We are shooting for one every three months. The average age of our class pilots is now 80 years old. Thus, about a third have already died. But death is not a reason to skip their war stories and accomplishments. We are in contact with many of the families of the deceased, wives and children, who are helping to provide records to tell the great stories of the deceased. Every word in this book is part of a true story. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction, or I should say truth makes better stories than fiction. Every name in this book is a real person. We want you to know who was involved in the story. Thus, there are many names in this book that are not 55-N members.
