The life of a U.S.N. flier, beginning after his year of training at Pensacola. The daily incidents, amusing, harrowing, tragic, make grand reading. Four years of flying with a carrier squadron, based at San Diego, training cruises on aircraft carriers, patrol flights, dive bombers, war games, an absorbing picture of modern naval aviation. The author is a reserve officer, has tested dive bombers for the French Navy in this war, piloted for T W A, and test piloted for Vought-Sikorsky Aircraft. Good stuff. Plus sale for boys.
