From a very young age, Gino Pastori knew he wanted to fly the iconic DC-3. He wanted to fly freight because it was flown at night. Gino shares his memories of what it took to become a commercial pilot and what it was like to live the dream. With more than 7,400 flying hours logged in DC-3s, there were many incredible flying stories. This memoir includes the most memorable stories, such as flying a plane after being temporarily blinded by a lightning strike.

Great story, fun to listen to. One day I hope to at least co-pilot a DC-3! I found this story very inspiring.

Nikola Tesla was a person who made great contributions in the field of electricity. He helped design the electricity supply system of alternating current. He also worked with other great individuals, including Thomas Edison, even though that was only for a short time. With his development of various electrical devices, he was able to contribute to the electrical evolution that has truly transformed the lives of so many people.

Easy listening & enjoyable story of the Quintessential Mad Scientist, Nikola Tesla. Many modern day technological advances have been made possible by Tesla's ground work. Tesla would have enjoyed this narrative. I hope one day Wardencliffe becomes a Tesla Museum. as a child I had an uncle who worked in Tesla's Niagara Falls Power Station. I believe there is a statue of Tesla on site. I am an electrical Engineer & my dream is to own a Tesla Motorcar! He:d be so proud to see a Tesla whizz past quietly! XIII.
