Publisher's Summary

Don't worry about your tray table and seat back for this one. Forget what you've been told about the romantic notion of the airline business. It's not like what you've seen in the movies. Buckle your seat belt and join Captain Kimber C. Turner for a flight over a thirty year career of ups and downs in aviation. This story of his love/hate life in airplanes will take you from laughter to livid and back again. Kimber C. Turner is a retired airline pilot with over 18,000 hours of flight time, and a former radio talk show host. Now he is out of the sky and off of the air. In his retirement, Captain Turner does some voice over work and an occasional guest spot on the radio. He also writes a book now and then.

    Story
    "Jaded employee rant. "

    Are you a bellyache? Do you like to bellyache? if so, read this book! I just couldn't imagine why anybody would want to listen to anyone complain about how much their bosses sucked for 2 hours.

    "A good quick read."

    Could have been longer. There were several areas where more detail would have been nice. A great read nonetheless.

    Story
    "Not Real Interesting"

    Was hoping for an eye-opening look at nighttime aviation. Instead, minimal good pilot stories, but lots of complaining about management, which was really boring.

    No personal stories, minimal flying stories and barely a word about the successful freight airlines, FedEx and UPS.

    Short, mostly boring and , yet another case of a good narrator saving a not-great story.

    Story
    "Enjoyed the insight into aviation"
    If you could sum up Freight Dog in three words, what would they be?

    just like us


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Freight Dog?

    hearing about messages being left in dome lights is a neat idea


    Which scene was your favorite?

    thinking about the extravagant travel during the good years


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    in the clouds or hopelessly grounded


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed the narration to keep me intrigued.
