Publisher's Summary

Daniel Ford learned to fly at the age when most men are well into retirement. In this short book, he tells how it was to have a flight instructor one-third his age, to make a sentimental journey to the Pennsylvania airport where the Piper Cub first saw the light of day, to practice spins and aerobatic turns in a Great Lakes biplane, to make a leisurely tour around Lake Winnipesaukee and into his past, and to have a close encounter with the National Defense Emergency of September 11, 2001. A delightful story for anyone who ever dreamed of becoming a pilot.

Gracefully executed essays.

An enthusiastic celebration of doped fabric wings, grass runways, and the joys of chasing one's dreams. Delightful.
