Man-Killers of the Air | [L. Ron Hubbard]

Man-Killers of the Air

Colorful daredevil air racer Smoke Burnham is known not only for his ability to cross the finish line ahead of the pack, but also for his unusual flying companion, a pet cheetah named Patty. On the eve of entering an international air race to win much-needed prize money, Smoke and Patty face the usual and the impossible. The race involves a dangerous, grueling flight down Central America, over the Andes and across the Brazilian jungle - that's typical. The real challenge is that a publicity-hungry newspaper mogul is trying to sabotage Smoke's plane.

Publisher's Summary

"Take a touch of Charles Lindbergh, mix in a dash of Evel Knievel, throw in one man-killing cat - and you’ve got a recipe for a rip-roaring adventure featuring the high-flying, hard-living Smoke Burnham.There’s not a dare Smoke won’t take, and there’s not a wager he won’t make. Now he’s betting his life that he can fly his plane, Super Comet - with his pet cheetah Patty coming along for the ride - across the mountains and jungles of South America to a prize-winning payday. All he has to do is out-race the competition, out-maneuver a saboteur, and make out with his girl - who’s determined to bring him down to earth. One thing you can count on - in the air, in a fight, or in his girlfriend’s arms - he’s a man who likes to turn up the heat. Because where there’s Smoke, there’s fire.In 1931, as a student at George Washington University, Hubbard founded the college Glider Club and within a few months a respected columnist said “He is recognized as one of the outstanding glider pilots in the country.” Later he wrote as the aviation correspondent for the prestigious flying magazine Sportsman Pilot. His combined writing and flying expertise comprised the perfect recipe to give stories like Man-Killers of the Air their authentic flavor."
